I'm hoping someone here is a cooking/food type I have an event next week and I want to bring some of the excess fruit I have, but I have a few questions.
I froze some strawberry slices; I was planning on either letting them sit in the fridge the day before to thaw or defrosting them the day of via soaking the tub in water because I won't have a lot of time. I don't know much about this though, so if its not advisable I'm definitely open to other suggestions. My question here is, do I need to keep them chilled at the event itself? If so, how could I do this?
I plan to bake apple slices as well. When they're done, do I need to refrigerate them? At the event, can they sit at outdoor temperature for a few hours?
Finally, I have a bag of lemons someone gave me. I'm not a lemon person at all. I don't have the kind of ingredients right now to make a cake or muffins or anything like that. Is there anything somewhat quick I can do with those along the lines of finger food?
In my experience, frozen strawberries do not thaw well to be used as finger food. They are almost always mushy. At best, I use frozen strawberries in things like smoothies or milkshakes or homemade popsicles.
For the lemon, you can squeeze out the juice on fresh apple or pear slices to prevent them from browning.
I think cooked apple slices should be okay at room temp for a few hours, but don't quote me on that.
