Mummy Apple experiment

This year we are studying Anatomy and one of experiments we have done so far is the "Mummy Apple". We didn't wrap it in rags, but used a few basic ingredients that you probably have in your cabinet.

2 bowls
Baking soda

-peel an Apple and cut in half
-place each half in separate bowls
- cover one Apple with a mixture of 3 parts baking soda and 1 part salt. The other Apple is your control Apple.
-wait a week without peeking

The results in a week are interesting, the water from the Apple absorbs into the mixture and you get a dry apple. Try it out and mummify your own apple.
