Foods 1 finished the beans and legumes unit with our cooked beans. Yesterday we learned about the nutrition and how to sort, soak and cook. I cooked the soaked pinto and black beans for the students and they had fresh beans to use in their chili lab today.
They reviewed one of the cooking terms, saute, by preparing the onions for the chili.
Moses has the hang of it, using a teaspoon of olive oil.
Juraj is a great cook.
Scarlett and Kelby realized a lid keeps the heat inside.
The kids brought their ingredients to a a steaming boil and turned down to a simmer for 15 minutes.
Zion has one final look before the taste test.
We have a bar with sour cream, hot sauce and chopped jalepenos for the kids to enjoy chili.
Looking good, Zion,
Double cheesy yum, says Moses.
Leftover beans are labeled and frozen for future homemade tortilla lab.
A successful bean day, Foods 1.
