By December 21, 2013

Follow me on:

Cooking is a form of chemistry in which you mix chemicals in order to make something tasty to eat. You can grow edible crystals that resemble snow or ice or make candy to use as Christmas ornaments or to give as gifts. It's also a great time of year to learn about the chemistry behind your favorite holiday dishes.
