Week 29 -- Flavored Syrups and The Zomedy Pre-Production


 
Two successful, though 
slightly different, mint syrups.
An unsuccessful attempt at mint syrup.
(It was cooked for too long.)
Most of our homeroom time this week has been devoted to the long-term projects that we started last week. Kaden, Jarod, and Eli have been making flavored syrups, while Owen is working on a written protocol (ie recipe) for the simple syrup that is the base of the flavored syrups. 

Chris Swinko generously offered to let us use herbs from his class garden. So far it's just a lot of sage, but peppermint and spearmint are on the way.

Lisa talked to the class about the importance of accurately documenting each step of the process to enhance repeatability. In the photo, Kaden is making notes on the sage syrup that Eli is developing (not pictured). 



Jarod works on a ginger syrup with help from Kaden.

The whole class movie project, "The Zomedy" is in the pre-production phase; principal photography will hopefully begin next week, but there may be more location scouting and set design that needs to happen first.
