Equipment (To join an entirely optional practical)
It is a good idea to have a whiteboard or paper, pen, ruler and calculator to hand in each session.
- Ice cubes (approx. 2 trays full / 25 cubes, straight from the freezer, (not plastic covered or gel, they need to be able to melt)
- A piece of string (10cm ish)
- A medium sized mixing bowl
- A tall narrow glass (pint glass or similar, the narrower the better)
- A long spoon
- Salt: At least 10 heaped tablespoons. Any will do but the more coarse the better (road salt is fine)
- Full fat milk (approx 100 mL (dairy free alternatives should work too)
- A teaspoon of sugar
- Flavouring (vanilla extract, fruit puree or sauce...)
- A thermometer, if you have two, even better!
