Preserving Apples

Last week, room 4 investigated 3 different ways to preserve apples (make them last longer). One group soaked the apples in lemon juice and then dehydrated them. Another group soaked them in lemon juice, vacuum sealed them and froze them. The last group cooked them in sugar and canned them. It was such a fun afternoon and we learned lots of new life skills, like peeling an apple without the skin breaking.

This afternoon, we tried all 3 of our different samples after they had been stored for almost a week. We decided which ones we like the best and why using our observation senses. 
Who knew science could be so delicious!

The wet one was really good. That was because it was nice and juicy.

My favourite sample was the canning apples because of the flavour it tasted like apple source. The second favourite was dehydrated ones because I liked the taste of it.
My least favourite is the freezing one because of taste.

My favourite one was the canned apples because it tasted like i was floating above everything. My least favourite one was the dehydrated apple because it got stuck in my teeth and made the taste last longer. My second was the frozen because it was very tasteful and it was mushy.
