Science of Cooking: Ice Cream
What you get
Science is never cooler than when you’re using it to make ice cream! Dig into a series of kitchen chemistry experiments and kid-friendly recipes for ice cream and sorbet — made using just the tools in this crate and some ingredients from home. Learn about the science behind ice crystals and freezing, how air is one of the most important ingredients in ice cream, and how stabilizers help keep dessert delicious. Then customize the included recipes to make all sorts of creamy concoctions — from choco-cherry ice cream to fresh fruit sorbet!
This crate does not include any food ingredients, including rock salt. Food prep tools should be washed before use.
the Crate Challenge
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“I've had enough ice cream, said no one ever. That's why we wanted to be sure our ice cream–making tools would hold up to lots (and lots) of use.”
By the numbers
Ice cream scoopers tested: 7
Batches of ice cream made: at least 15
Ice cream considered in testing of this crate: a lot, but we'd still eat more!
It was a great activity. Ice cream tasted really good. Directions were excellent but was very messy because lud on large jar did not have good seal.
Great gift ! Kept 2 kids busy and happy for a few hours. A win win!
Lots of fun to keep the kids entertained, she loved rolling it around and stirring. Made a great product from the recipes. Floors got salty from the melting ice, could potentially work on a better lid? Love we can re-use it over and over again
