Kids Cook Lesson Two: Apples

Today thirteen children joined me to explore apples for the Kids Cook series at Sprout Soup.

We started out making a simple six ingredient apple crisp.  One table chopped peeled cored apples into pieces while the other mixed the topping.

6 peeled and cored apples, chopped and placed into 8x8 dish

1/2 cup oats

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

1 tsp cinammon

1/2 tsp salt

Combine topping ingredients with pastry cutter and spread over apples.  Bake at 350 deg. F. until bubbly (about 30 minutes)

After putting the crisp in the toaster oven, we sang Five Little Apples Hanging in the Tree and made apple trees with our bodies.

Next we made applesauce.  The apples were quickly stewed before the class.  Everyone got a turn using the foodmill to puree the applesauce.  Then we tasted it.

Finally we read Annie the Apple Farmer.  We ate the warm apple crisp and everyone went home with a recipe card.

Next week's class is about crackers.  Children ages 3 - 6 are welcome!
