Get kids cooking with one of their favorite foods – apples! Help them appreciate the wholesome flavor of apples without the extra sugars.
This cookbook is packed with over 70 tasty apple-filled recipes in many different dishes. There are simple recipes for the very young and many more for the older cook who takes pride in her or his apple creation. Not only are there recipes for apple pies, apple cakes and cookies, but there are recipes for apples in breads and cereals, salads, main dishes, snacks, and drinks. Included are classics such as Apple Crisp and the curiously named Appaloosa Fizz.
These recipes are not dependent on lots of sugar. If any sweetening is needed, only natural sweeteners are used, including honey, maple syrup, and Sucanat® cane sugar.
By using less sugar you become more aware of the natural flavor of apples. In time, you may even find you don’t need food to be as sweet as it once was. Apples in themselves have wonderful flavors if time is taken to savor them.
The goal of this cookbook is to help kids and families enjoy apples in their healthy organic form, but also to provide general guidelines about making healthy food choices. The human body knows how to be healthy. The right building materials are needed to do its job. Unfortunately, much of all chronic disease is caused by poor food choices, toxic food ingredients, and lack of physical exercise.
