Do Some Cranberry Sauce Science!
It’s food. It’s tradition. And guess what: Cranberry Sauce is also science! This year on Thanksgiving, we invite you and your child to try the simple recipe below. You’ll explore the effects of pectin, a complex carbohydrate that is found in the skins and cores of many kinds of fruit. Take just a few cups of cranberries, add sugar, water, and heat, and watch what happens. When you’re all done, make sure you eat some, too. We think it’s truly delicious!
