Drying Apple Slices

Happy Autumnal Equinox!
Autumn has arrived, and with it, much less humidity up our way.
So, for our first Seasonal family activity, we have dried apples.

You will find a  step-by-step guide in the wonderful book; Earthwise
though, our method was a little different.

We used an apple spiral/slinky cutter!
The kids LOVE it.

 Dipped in Calcium Ascorbate & water,
to reduce browning when drying.

Towel dried before threading.
Less to dry off when hanging AND less slippery to thread.
Equally doable activity for both of my boys

Ready to eat in a week or so, depending on our weather I guess!
