The CHEF TIPS:

Contains tree nuts (almonds). Sunflower seed butter or soy nut butter may be used in place of almond butter. Some sunflower seed butters and soy nut butters are produced on equipment shared with tree nuts and, in some cases, peanuts.

• To keep fresh cut fruit from turning brown, coat them with an acidic juice, such as lemon or orange, or use a commercial anti-darkening agent.
