People say that stuff is “made from scratch” all the time, but the thing is no one really knows what “scratch” refers to. Stretched to its logical endpoint, it means making all the ingredients of whatever the end product might be yourself, which is the subject of a new YouTube video How to Make a $1500 Sandwich in Only 6 Months from Andy “How to Make Everything” George.
Where a sandwich is generally favored for the simplicity and cheapness of its making, George sunk $1,500 and six months of his life into this particular sandwich, making his own bread, salt, and cheese – and even going so far as to slaughter his own chicken. Here’s George on his process:
“I spent 6 months and $1500 to completely make a sandwich from scratch. Including growing my own vegetables, making my own salt from ocean water, milking a cow to make cheese, grinding my own flour from wheat, collecting my own honey, and killing a chicken myself.”
