What do you do with leftover APPLE BUNNIES?

hey everyone, I've run into the problem when making apple bunnies or just plain sliced apples that I always have way too many slices left over from cutting the big apple up... any suggestions on how to keep them fresh for future use? I am guessing that freezing is not an option as I think the fruit would get pretty mushy upon defrosting. I've tried soaking them in lemon juice and then keeping them in the fridge, but it doesn't seem to help much. I've also tried letting them sit in the fridge in an juice-water bath, but then the apples become very soggy and unappetizing. As I only make bento for 1 or 2 people at the most at a time, I'd really appreciate your suggestions so that the rest of my apple doesn't keep going to waste and I can still have cute apple bunnies in my bento ^^ Thanks !
