do you think that it is ok if I let my apple in the salt and lemon solution for like 3 days?

that sounds like it might even make it more wrinkly. i think it will work well; let me know how it turns out.
Here is my shrunken apple head (very squishy)

This could be a fun project for most kids.

What temperature should the oven be when I bake the apple? 

schoonovermr (author)  chuckr445 years ago
i baked it at 350, but you can heat it up more to cook it faster.

Nice, on the boat to Tasmania from Mainland Australia they have a souvenir shop, and I've always wondered how they do that! Thanks!
