“Hey, did you both know raisins come from grapes?”
The six year old knew that already, it was new to the four year old. I was holding a handful of grapes, one a little more wrinkled than the others and other than being brushed off as ‘disgusting’ I offered up an experiment idea.
I told them I knew that raisins came from grapes, but I didn’t really know how they did it. Were they dehydrated with machines? Were all sorts of things added to them? Or was it simply drying out grapes??
“We have a heater, wanna try that out?”
After a few days in front of the heater, (this image is from day four) I decided to do a little research on raising raisins including this link on making your own raisins in the oven.
