Bananas turning brown on a fruit tray
I'm a fan of taking fruit trays to 'bring food' occassions... they're so beautiful and you can garnish them so easily (hollow out a pineapple for the dip, make lemon roses, put a slice of lime or lemon or orange on the side of the dip container, etc.).
Anyway, I always have a banana problem --wow, that word (banana) is hard to type, or is it just me, I either have to type it slow or use backspace and fix it. Anyway, all the other fruits are fine after being chunked or sliced into serving size, but I always have to take the bananas separate and do them last-minute before the meal. It can be unhandy.
Apples work great in pineapple or lemon juice, but I tried bananas with pineapple juice and they started turning brown and not as fresh within an hour! Something that would make them still nice-looking after 3 hours or so would be perfect.
