Food science covers a lot of ground–from agricultural methods that affect the nutritional quality of our food, to what’s in our food, to how ingredients work together to make a cake or salad dressing, and so much more. It’s fun to explore!

Love and 4 jars of rice and water: Experiment #4

See that jar on the left? That’s the first Love Jar, from January 1, 2017. I took the photo above today. I understand if you’re skeptical. I would be too. But this is indeed the same jar, same rice with which my granddaughter and I began our first water and rice experiment two years ago today. I can’t explain the rice looking so good. I can tell you, it doesn’t smell as good as it looks. Not as bad as the other two, which just about made me faint, but bad enough.
