P5 Mummify an Apple

We learnt that Ancient Egyptians used natron salt to help preserve the body during mummification. We wanted to test this out to see if salt was the best substance for preservation so we mummified pieces of apple. Apple slices, of equal size, were covered with different substances and left for 4 days. Conor has shared his results and found that salt was the best for preserving the apple.
