Cade and I often do things a little backwards. We find one of our favorites, a real classic that we’ve had our whole lives and love it and we make it into something reinvented. Or we break it down and turn it into a more basic recipe.
Either way it’s a new version of the classic. Unfortunately we always forget one thing, the original recipe. We always get so excited about our new ideas we forget to share what’s it’s based off of. Our brown sugar apple dip was a new version of this toffee apple dip but it came out years ago and now I’m finally posting about the original.
How do You Keep Cut Apples From Turning Brown?
The best way to prevent browning is to soak the cut fruit in a saltwater solution (half a teaspoon of kosher salt per cup of water) for 10 minutes, then drain and store until ready to use.
The mild salt flavor can be rinsed off with tap water before serving.
The best part is that even after rinsing, the browning is still just as effectively reduced.
It’s just cream cheese, brown sugar and toffee bits. Three ingredients, but it’s like they were all made for each other and especially made for those crisp, juicy apples. This is one of those times you may want to skip the Honeycrisps and go for Granny Smiths. The Granny has a little more snap to it’s bite and that tart flavor is perfect to balance out the sweet dip.
Before you go, just make sure you remember a few things. First, always use softened cream cheese or it will be clumpy. Second, scroll down to check out our new versions.
