I am planning a party and want to serve cut asian pears and apples 
fresh.

I need to cut the fruit in the morning to serve in the afternoon.  
Say, cut around 10 serve from 3-7.  How best to keep the fruit fresh?

I heard one country remedy which seems to work pretty well with 
apples, but not with pears:  to immerse in Sprite.  

I tried some citric acid in a water bath, both quick dip and soak.  
The quick dip seemed the better of the two.

However, while this is off topic, I KNOW folks on the list will have 
some suggestions, and I would appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks.
