Safe Food Preparation
Let's Get Started
In this activity, students will learn about—and practice—safe food preparation by making fruit ice cream in class. They will learn that safe food preparation procedures include using clean utensils, washing work surfaces, and washing hands.
Have each student measure the following ingredients into a small, freezer-weight, re-sealable plastic bag: 1/4 cup of orange juice, 1/2 teaspoon of gelatin and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Have students seal, and then shake their bags to mix these ingredients together.
