As promised...here are pics of our mummified apple experiment. Well at least part 1.
We gathered our ingredients. One apple, a popsicle stick, Epsom salts, backing soda, and regular salt. We mixed the salts together in a plastic baggie, carved a face on the apple with the popsicle stick, pushed the stick into the middle of the apple, and covered the apple with salts in the baggie. It has to sit for about a week in a warm dry place. I am hoping our home is warm enough for this to be a success.
