Apple Cookbook for Kids and Families - How to Make Apple Recipes Healthier
The apple cookbook, Healthy to the Core! All Natural No Sugar/Low Sugar Apple Recipes for Kids helps families learn how to make their favorite apple recipes healthier. With increasing awareness about an obesity epidemic among young people, its time to look at apple recipes in a healthier light.
Author Lee Jackson, former food and nutrition teacher, says the emphasis of these recipes is to offer alternatives to the traditional high sugar/white flour in apple recipes. Many apple varieties provide enough sweetness. If more sweetness is desired, suggestions are given for using natural sweeteners such as unrefined organic evaporated cane sugar, honey, or maple syrup. No artificial sweeteners are used. Suggestions are given for flours of choice and cooking oils to use. This healthy approach is given to apple recipes in all categories from breads and sandwiches to salads, apple pies, cakes, cookies, apple crisps, and snacks.
Introduced are bits of information about apples and how they have impacted history through the ages. Children learn about the part Johnny Appleseed and Isaac Newton played in apple lore as well as many interesting facts and legends surrounding apples.
An apple guide gives the varieties of apples to use for different purposes. There are examples of varieties that are best to use for eating-in hand and in salads, for cooking and making applesauce, and those varieties best for baking in apple pies, tarts, apple crisps, and other desserts. This guide makes it easy to decide how best to use the available variety.
“This is a good year for apples,” commented Jackson, as most apple producing states report abundant harvests. Involving kids in working with apples is a good way to get kids excited about cooking. Having cookbooks available for children expands their interest in food work.Those who cook will most often want to eat the food they have prepared, which is another plus.
