Many years ago when I was a family and consumer sciences teacher, the students could hardly wait to work
in a foods lab. “Are we cookin’
today” was an often heard remark.
Fall especially brought an abundance of different foods to prepare and sample.
One of the most versatile and interesting was the use of apples. At that time we had five unit kitchens with four students in each. Each kitchen was to choose a different method of preparing apples and then all would sample the results.
There was much “ours is better than yours”. “No, wait ‘til you try this” and “I didn’t think you could do all this with apples”.
If you have a problem wondering what to do with all those apples, I invite you to check out this book at http://www.imagesunlimitedpub.com and get one for yourself – and a friend. Apples continue to be one of nature’s most beautiful and bountiful fruits.
Best to you and your family,
