Washington: A 28-year-old YouTuber has spent six months and USD 1,500 to make a chicken sandwich from scratch - a task which included growing his own vegetables and making his own cheese.
Andy George hosts a YouTube channel that documents the entire process of creating everyday items like tools and suits.
In his latest endeavour George set out to document the process of making a "simple" chicken sandwich from scratch. The ingredients list for the sandwich included lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, dill, peppers, garlic, sunflowers, eggs, salt, honey, wheat, milk, and one live chicken.
To create the sandwich, George produced the ingredients himself. This included planting seeds in a community garden to grow vegetables, extracting honey from a local bee farm, milking a cow to make butter and cheese, and processing wheat to create bread.
George told 'ABC News' that the hardest ingredient to retrieve for the sandwich was the salt (George had to travel from his hometown of Minneapolis to the Pacific Ocean to collect salt water, which he then processed into salt), and the hardest ingredient to make was the mayonnaise.
The entire project took six months and cost USD 1,500. The video of the sandwich-making process on YouTube has had over half a million views. For his next project, George hopes to travel to Mexico to create coffee and chocolate from scratch.
