Drying Apples

After our apple picking adventure, we decided to slice and dry our apples and it was a fun project!

We used our corer/peeler/slicer & hung them to dry by the fireplace.
We noticed that certain apples were thicker than others and would hold together better. Most of the apples would be pulled apart and we kept hearing 'thuds' of apples falling from the string as they dried, so I put some towels underneath to salvage the broken pieces.

After a day or so, they were nice and dry and ready for eating.
We bagged the rest to take with us on our nature journal expeditions.

What a lovely (and yummy) way to celebrate autumn!
