When passing hot rolls around the dinner table, buying popcorn at a movie theater or making cookies, it is there: butter. The average American eats 5 pounds of butter a year. At this rate, you will have eaten close to 100 pounds of butter by the time you graduate high school. If the adage “ You are what you eat” is true, then  the composition of butter is worth investigating.

Ms. Furcinito’s science classes teamed up with Ms. Parvese’s and Ms. Buie’s culinary classes to learn about the differences between physical and chemical changes while making butter.  How do you end a project that involves butter?  Test it out on rolls and pancakes!
