Green Eggs and Ham

 Do you like 
green eggs and ham 

I do not like them, 
Sam-I-am.

I am sure this would suffice as an add on to the coloured egg experiment post but we had so much fun with this I felt it deserved a post all to itself!

 

We repeated the experiment but this time on two eggs, one of which we coloured red as before and the other one we coloured green… because the children (especially the BIG ones) couldn’t let it go without trying to make “green eggs” and ham!

 

The first day we dissolved the shell away in vinegar and then yesterday we transferred the eggs a cup of coloured water and left them overnight. We had the fun of checking them out when we got up this morning… and they didn’t disappoint!

The colouring step definitely worked, but we still wanted to cook a coloured egg.

We snipped the membrane of the green egg and scrambled it, and finally we had our “green eggs and ham“!

Doesn’t look too appetizing, does it? But I persuaded the Science Wows team to try it out…

And how does it taste?…

 

How did it taste?
How did it taste?

 

 

 

 

It tasted awful!!!

 

But we had fun!

 

I would not eat green eggs and ham. 
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

    Ha ha ha! Great experiment – so your story has a different end than the book? Well, reality and fiction do not always walk hand in hand 🙂

      Thanks Sadhbh, it did taste vile 😉 It was because of the vinegar but we all got a laugh from it. I did feel a bit sorry for my husband who came home from work expecting pizzas and got handed a plate of green eggs and ham 😉 He took it well though (and he got his pizza evetually)
