In the end they all seemed to like their finished products. Courtesy Photo Sadie Sturman learns the easiest way to separate eggs without breaking the yolk. Courtesy Photo


Wow! Another Activity has come and gone. On Thursday, June 19th the second 4-H Family Consumer Science Activity day was held. There were 17 members that attended and 5 guests. Seven adults helped put on the activity day. This activity day showed the members the precautions to use when cooking with eggs, foodborne illnesses, and ways to separate egg whites and yolks. The experiments of the day were different ways of separating eggs and how to make a chocolate soufflé. Prior to separating eggs they had to predict what ways would and would not work to separate eggs and discuss with their group why. Some of the methods the groups used were a slotted spoon, pop bottle, funnels, hands, and egg separator. Out of all those methods the two the members seemed to enjoy the most were the pop bottle and using their hands. After getting at least one egg to successfully separate, they beat the egg whites until the whites were foamy and at stiff peaks.

For the second experiment the members made chocolate soufflé. They learned to not over heat chocolate because it hardens up like cement and when folding in the chocolate to not over fold. When baking soufflé’s they realized how delicate eggs are in the recipe. If you over fold or mix soufflé it will not rise like it is supposed to. Rather it will do the exact opposite.

For lunch chicken and dumpling casserole, magical fruit salad, whole wheat quick bread, Chinese Ramen noodle cabbage salad, and lemon-cream dessert cake was prepared by participants. By the time it came to bake the cake the participants had learned the easiest way to separate eggs without breaking the yolk. Not only were the participants learning how to use egg whites in recipes, but also how egg yolks are handy in other recipes as well.

After lunch was served, the participants sewed hot pads filled with wheat and spices. Then they sewed microwave bowl potholders. This sewing project was a bit more challenging due to having to sew material with wheat inside it and trying to make sure the wheat didn’t get in the way while sewing or get spilled. In the end they all seemed to like their finished products.

The 4-H members that were present were Phoebe Albright, Vanya Barnsdale, Bryn Bruch, Kaitlin Gaukel, Kylee Gaukel, Taylor Gaukel, Abby Kottwitz, Peyton Kottwitz, Bethany Krein, Rachel Krein, Dalton Larson, Mattie Pfister, Meghan Proctor, Karen Schardt, and Sadie Sturman. The guests were Adelle DesEnfants, Evelyn DesEnfants, Heidi DesEnfants, Katie Schardt, and Krista Schardt. The adults were Cheryll Christianson, Peggy DesEnfants, Vivian Fahy, Donna Hanson, Kenzie Miller, Sena Pearson, and Denise Smith.

Thank you for all those who attended! The next Activity day is Thursday, July 3rd.

There all only 2 Activity days left, so do not miss your chance to do experiments, sew and cook.
