Around these parts we sure love a good treat. We've had a lot lately. But I justify it because we are "learning" Take for example the ice cream we made with dry ice.
Now for you Westerners, dry ice ice cream doesn't sound like a big deal. But if you live in Massachusetts where the government protects you from everything, dry ice ice cream is like whiskey during the prohibition era. Ok, dry ice isn't illegal, but it is really hard to find. So, thanks to Jackie, we had carbonated ice cream (and it had the same effect soda does on us...and maybe we had a small burping contest, maybe). Jackie also introduced them into the world of dry ice bombs. Maybe Massachusetts should protect us from Jackie.
And this little chemosynthesis experiment took a while, but we got some good sugar crystals growing.
I think we are due for some chocolate experiments next. Dark chocolate!
My mad scientist friend Jackie pulled off another amazing Friday. She brought in liquid nitrogen. We froze and smashed roses, grapes, and an egg on my kitchen floor (the yolk in the egg was not quite frozen all the way).
But the most important thing we did with the liquid nitrogen was make...
Ice Cream! You know, like the "Dippin' Dots" kind.
