Making Muffet Food
Little Miss Muffet was eating her curds and whey when that spider came along. Just what are curds and whey?
- 1 cup of milk (250 ml)
- 1/3 cup of vinegar (83 ml)
- a wide-mouth jar
What to do:
In a wide-mouthed jar, mix milk and vinegar.
The milk changes. At the bottom is a thick substance (the curds) and on top is a watery liquid (the whey).
Vinegar turns the milk sour and separates some of its parts. Curds are made up of the fat and minerals and a protein called casein. Cheeses are made from curds. White glue is made from the casein of the curds. To use the curds as glue, just wash away the liquid.
