Class Experience

Students will be taught about the scientific principle of supersaturation, and also about honey and candy making.
I began cooking as a child, and I was taught classic cooking techniques by my mother.  I took inorganic chemistry and physical science at university, and I've been a candy maker for many years.
No homework
Four to six apples
Two cups white sugar
1 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 cup water
Food dye (not required)
Forks or sticks for the apples
Three or four quart pot
Candy thermometer (not essential but recommended)
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will be advised strongly to never attempt replicating candy making without parental permission AND supervision.  Boiling candy gets extremely hot and could potentially cause severe burns.  Cooking in the home should only be done with parental permission according to the rules of your home.
