Recipe Backstory: During the fall when my grandmother was very little her mother would make her apple crisp with fresh apples from a tree in their backyard. Since then it has been a family tradition to make fresh apple crisp every fall. The pure substance is the water that you wash the apples in. The homogeneous mixtures are brown sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The heterogeneous mixture are oats and apples, the batter before it's mixed and the batter after it's finished baking. The butter warming up after it is taken out of the refrigerator and mixing the ingredients are physical changes. The color change in the batter as the crisp bakes is a chemical change. Your second chemical change is when the apple tree is using photosynthesis to make its energy so it can produce apples. Submitted by: "Sara T."
