High School Bread Mold Experiment
This morning my 15 year old comes to me and says, "Dad I have a bread mold experiment I have to do for Biology". Instantly, I gloss over the "mold" and start thinking he needs some starter to take to school but, I digress. Anyway, they have to wet a piece of bread leave it on the the counter for a few hours then toss it in a baggie and put it in a dark place. So, I gave my son two pieces of bread one a dinner roll I made and two a piece of sourdough I made. It will be interesting to see which of the two molds the fastest. I also told him to inform his teacher that the breads he used were homemade and only contained Flour, Water, Yeast and Salt compared to the Commercial Chemical Bread that I'm sure all the other students are using, so that she can compare the results between real bread and the chemical bread. When I can get some data from his class I will share it, this should be fun and interesting.
