I don’t often have an opportunity to go down the back of my desk, and when I did I was amazed to find an old shrivelled up apple. It hadn’t created a stink of any kind, but instead it shrivelled up beautifully. It must’ve been down there for weeks! I’m very glad this accidental experiment turned out to be fascinating rather than fusty!
Note: leaving fruit lying around until it shrivels up is not a recommended way of drying fruit!
