How to Make a Apple Berry Fruit Bouquet

The Apple Berry Fruit Bouquet is a delightful way to enjoy fresh fruit. This charming bouquet is filled with a mix of apples and berries, making it the perfect gift for any occasion. People order these delicious bouquet and often pay a high price. While pay someone else to make it, when you can make one at home for a fraction of the cost. Using Envy™ apples and Naturipe berries, this beautiful fruit bouquet can be the centerpiece at your next gathering.

How to Prevent the Apples from Browning

The apples will brown if they are not treated with lemon juice or ascorbic acid, called acidulated water. To make acidulated water, add the juice of one lemon to a bowl filled with ice water. Dip your apple slices to prevent them from browning.

Can I Use Other Shapes to Cut the Fruit

We used flower and heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut our apples for the bouquet. We did this to resemble flowers in a vase. You can use other shapes if you like. Try using star shapes, circles, or any other shape that you think would look nice in a fruit bouquet.

You can use a melon baller to make perfect spheres of fruit if you want your fruit bouquet to have a more uniform look.

How to Store a Fruit bouquet

When it comes to storing a fruit bouquet, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure that the bouquet is stored in a cool, dry place. Second, if you are going to store the bouquet for more than a day or two, we would recommend refrigerating the fruit. This will help keep the fruit from going bad. Finally, if you are storing the bouquet for longer than a week, we recommend freezing the fruit. This will help keep the fruit fresh for a longer period of time.

Variations

This fruit bouquet is easy to change up. We love using Envy™ apples with the berries because it holds up well. Plus, we love the flavors. If you want to change things around with this fruit bouquet, you can try using different types of fruits. You could use pears, oranges, kiwi, melons, or any other type of fruit that you like.

You could even try using a mix of fruits to make this bouquet more interesting. We think that a mix of berries and cherries would be lovely in this bouquet. Or you could try using pineapple and mango for a tropical twist.

You can even add chocolate or caramel. Dip some of the fruits edges on chocolate or even a hard drying caramel, like the kind that is used for caramel apples. This will add an extra touch of sweetness.

The possibilities are endless! So have fun with it and make this bouquet your own.
