Mrs. Prindable's prepares each gourmet caramel apple gift the day that it is shipped. The apples are fresh and should be enjoyed soon after delivery or placed in the refrigerator. Once in the refrigerator, the apples will keep fresh for up to two weeks. Remove from the refrigerator 45 minutes before serving. At room temperature, the apple will be easier to slice.
The best way to slice the apple is to place the knife an inch or so from the stick and slice the length of the apple. You should have a nice round apple slice, and the seeds from the core should still be on the stick portion. Now, repeat this slice on the opposite side, again, giving yourself about an inch from the stick. Then cut the remaining two sides from the stick.
Cut these 4 slices as you desire. You should be able to cut up to 8 to 10 servings, or you can cut smaller bite-size apple morsels.
To prevent browning, sprinkle the apple slices with lemon juice. Make sure to wrap in cellophane and refrigerate any unconsumed slices-though leftovers are rare when Mrs. Prindable's is served!
