 How We Dried Apples! 

A few days ago we dried apples. It was great fun!

First, we filled a sink with water, and washed the apples. Then we cored one, using Grandma’s new apple corer, and watched it twirl around and around, making spirals!

We had a bit of a play with it, making it   s t r e t c h.  🙂

Next we dropped it into a cup of lemon juice, so it wouldn’t get brown. We let it soak for a while, and cored another apple while we waited. After we thought it had been in there long enough (we’d finished coring the next apple), we took it and laid it out on a lemon juicer, and dunked the next apple.

After it had drained long enough for us to core another apple, we broke the first apple into rings, and arranged them on the dehydrator, being careful not to put them on top of each other.

When we finished the apples, we put the dehydrator on, and cleaned up. We like dried apples crunchy, so we left them on a little longer than the recipe said. They were delicious. 🙂

Tag Time!

I’ve been tagged by Dandelionmom: my first ever tag!

Here are the rules copied and pasted from Dandelionend:  Pass this on to 5 blogging friends. Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that.

My closest book is my Music Pace, which doesn’t have 56 pages!  So I will copy the last few sentences of that 🙂




You must now prepare yourself for the PACE test.  In preparation, you may want to follow one or more of these suggestions:


  1. Review the Objectives and Words to Know.
  2. Rewrite every incorrect exercise in the Self Test.
  3. Reread each section of the PACE.
  4. Relearn each section you still do not completely understand.
  5. Review the Checkups and Self Test.

When you are ready, turn in your PACE and request your PACE test. 


I’m only a new blogger, so I have only found two people to tag!  But I tag…..
