4-H members sampling chocolate

by Brayden Secord


The fifth meeting of the Badenoch 4-H Club (previously the Puslinch 4-H Club) was at Joan Law’s house on Oct. 14.

The three leaders, Law, sister Ida Law, and Marion Hunter attended. The group came up with the club name The Badenoch Sweet Tooths.

Each member shared what they had for Thanksgiving dinner. The recipe that day was chocolate holiday squares, made placing a marshmallow mixture into a pot of melted chocolate and put on graham crackers. They were rich and delicious. We also made homemade vanilla ice cream. Milk, cream and sugar were placed in a plastic bag. It was put in a second outer bag where ice and salt was placed.

Each member took turns shaking the bag. Due to freezing hands, members used towels to finish the job. Then, the ice cream and holiday squares were served and eaten. Since next week had a school PA day, that meeting will be rescheduled to Oct. 28. The members are looking forward to the coming Christmas session on craft making.

The fourth meeting was held on Oct. 7 at Joan Law’s. Four members attended and three were absent. The club welcomed Law’s granddaughters. The handmade chocolates from the previous meeting, were dipped in very hot chocolate. There were three types of dipping sauce: white, milk chocolate and dark. The process was tricky because each chocolate could be dipped for only a few seconds to prevent the chocolates from melting.

Six workers were divided into three groups stationed at a dipping sauce. The highlight was the opportunity to sneak a taste of each. Each 4-H member went away with a tray of all six different flavours of chocolates.
