how to make toffee
Son #3's recent school project was to investigate a food - to find out how it's grown, harvested, prepared and eaten.
He chose sugar.
My favourite part of his project was The Life Cycle of Sugar which went something like
1. The sugar is grown.
2. The sugar is packed.
3. The sugar goes to the supermarket.
4. The sugar is in your home.
Complete with flow chart.
I didn't have the heart to tell him I suspect the question related to the life cycle of the plant. At least his teacher can be sure it's all his own work.
Anyway. Part of the assignment was to choose a recipe which featured his food prominently and rope his mother into being photographic assistant.
We now have rather a lot of toffees in the pantry.
