There was no school today due to snow and freezing rain, so this afternoon Zachary and I broke out his Candy Chemistry kit.
Salt water taffy anyone?
It made way more candy than I thought it would.
One site recommended adding glycerin to the mixture and only heating it to 265 degrees, rather then the 270 most recipes call for (including ours). We'll certainly give it a go again sometime, following those recommendations.
I think we're moving on to gummy candies next.
