Look what we made today - blood!!
The recipe is from the Horrible Science Handbook's "Famously Foul Experiments" by Nick Arnold. Billy picked the grossest experiment from the entire book of course :)
The one on the left is the non-oxygenated blood from the veins, on the right is the oxygenated blood from the arteries.
If you want to do it yourself, here's the recipe:
- 2 dessertspoons flour
- 1 dessertspoon golden syrup (or corn syrup)
- red & green food colouring
- 100 ml warm water
Pour half the blood into a glass.
Now add a drop of green food colouring to the remainder and pour into a 2nd glass. This is the non-oxygenated blood.
Apparently you are able to "drink the blood" but we declined that portion of the experiment :)
