Apple Time

Zane and I took on drying old apples as a project today. I cored them, then the two of us sliced, dipped into a lime/water mixture, and put on the drying racks of the dehydrator. After about half a day they were all ready to be bagged up … but many of them ended up being “samples” along the way. I asked which he liked better: the ones I’d peeled or the ones with peels. He tried a {bunch} and concluded that the ones with peels were more flavorful.

p.s. the thing on his face is a shark. Home depot had a kids & safety day yesterday where he made a “fire fighting airplane” from a kit, ate cotton candy & popcorn, got a balloon hat from a clown, his face painted, and toured a firetruck, police car, and ambulance. Oh, and helped daddy pick up some fence for closing in the last section of the backyard. Chickens!
