On Friday the 17th of January, students at Richfield Residential Hall participated in a fun and educational workshop and afternoon activity with Uncle Petey, the Facilities Manger. Students were involved in a hands on activity that showed them how to prepare and dry various types of fruits and vegetables. Students washed, cored, sliced and dehydrated apples and pineapples. Not all of the apples or pineapples were put onto the drying racks as some sampling was done prior to and during the preparation of the fruit. Also, some of the fruit was made into hats and various items with a little imagination from the students!!
Students that participated had a great time and on Saturday after some drying time got to enjoy the fruits of their labor by eating dried apples, apples coated in cinnamon, and pineapple and cinnamon coated pineapple.
