Chemistry ...

As 'Nobby Butler' my old chemistry teacher used to say, 'is the appliance of science'

  • Take some Oranges and Lemons squeeze until the pips pop. (Pestle and Mortar)
  • Chop them up, return them to their own liquid in a saucepan (Beaker vessel)
  • Add heat and simmer on a low flame, for two hours (Bunsen Burner)
  • Add warm Sugar (C12H22O11.)
  • Check every 15 minutes, to see if a 'Chemical reaction' has taken place.
  • Smear liquid on a cooled plate, to see if 'set' has occured (Litmus test)
  • Leave the solution to cool for 20 minutes (Residual cooling)
  • Put into jars that have been washed thoroughly, in warm soapy water, rinsed, dried, then warmed in a medium oven for 5 minutes. (Sterilising)
  • Label when completely cold as 'Vromliminos Bitter Marmalade'

I knew it would come in handy one day - Thanks 'Nobby and Saint Delia' ...

Oh - and here's one i prepared earlier ...
