The results of our mummification experiment have been revealed! The salt worked best when removing moisture from the slices of apple - it went from 66g to 33g meaning it had lost 50% of its total weight. The apple that looked best, however, was the apple that had been placed in caster sugar. The slightly squishy but unbrowned apple lay at the bottom of the bowl in a syrup, leaving an air gap below a very hard, thick sugar crustwhich took Mrs Holt some effort to break through.
