Apple Heads

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     "Yuck," said Carla after she bit into an apple. "It is soft and does not taste good."
 
2     "Why not choose another one?" asked Grandpa.
 
3     "They all look the same," said Carla. "May we go to the orchard for new ones?"
 
4     "Not today," said Grandpa. "I know of something else we can do with those apples."
 
5     "Do you mean we can put them in a pie?"
 
6     Grandpa shook his head. "We can make apple heads."
 
7     "Apple heads?" asked Carla, making a face.
 
8     "That's right," said Grandpa with a twinkle in his eye. "Let me show you how it is done."
 
9     Grandpa chose an apple out of the bag. Then he used a paring knife to take the skin off. He used the knife to make a few quick cuts in the side of the apple.
 
10     Carla's eyes grew round as she saw a nose, eyes, and mouth take shape. When Grandpa was done, he set it on the table.
 
11     "What do we do with it now?" asked Carla.
 
12     We let it dry out," said Grandpa. "As it dries, it will change. Now, let us do another one."
 
13     Grandpa peeled a second apple. This time he let Carla help do the face. By the time they were done, the first apple was no longer white, but turning brown.
