Roast a juicy chicken: The next time you roast a chicken, stuff an apple inside the bird before placing it in the roasting pan. When it's done cooking, toss the apple. Your roasted chicken will be juicy and delicious.
Keep cakes fresh: A simple way to extend the life of a homemade or store bought cake is to store it with half an apple. It helps the cake maintain its moisture considerably longer than just storing it in the fridge.
Ripen green tomatoes: You can quickly ripen green tomatoes by placing them in a paper bag with a ripe apple for a couple of days. For best results, use one apple per five or six tomatoes.
Fluff up hardened brown sugar: Place an apple wedge in a ziplock bag with hardened brown sugar. Put the tightly sealed bag in a dry place for a day or two and your sugar will once again be soft enough to use.
Absorb salt in soups and stews: If you overdo the salt, just drop a few apple wedges in the pot. Cook for another ten minutes or so and remove the apple wedges, along with the excess salt.
Keep cookies soft: Place a couple of slices of apples in your cookie jar. Your cookies will stay soft for quite a bit longer than they normally do.
Last time I shared extraordinary uses, I opened a can of worms by telling you some ways to use peanut butter. Leave it to me to share that the same week the great peanut butter recall was announced. LOL
As far as I know, apples are still safe. :-)
