To complete our topic we discussed the foods that might have been eaten on long voyages and how they were stored. We looked at a recipe for ships biscuits that were full of salt and decided that these must of tasted dreadful. As a way to keep Scurvy at bay, we created our own healthy option biscuits with the addition of fresh lemon.
Once these biscuits were in the ships oven we all had a try at mixing up quick sand to catch a crafty pirate. We compared the texture of our mixtures and discovered if it was thick it would hold and cause a Pirate to be stuck.
