Kids Cook Book Soup: Apples!
I hope you haven’t had your fill of apple recipes just yet, because we have several more to share for the very first round-up of Kids Cook Book Soup. Thanks to all for sharing your apple inspiration, and please read to the end for the November theme announcement! With no further ado…
From Jen at The Gould House, “Eldress Bertha’s Applesauce”
Jen and her 2-year-old daughter, Ella, used apples from their farmers market to make this applesauce. Jen writes, “Ella enjoyed counting the apples, catching the apple peels as they fell into the bowl, and mashing the apples after they were done simmering on the stove. She also ate her first whole apple while I was doing the chopping. The applesauce was delicious and it made the house smell so “autumny”—definitely a keeper!”
From Melissa at Little Locavores, Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash — with Apples
Melissa created this fall recipe with the thought of appealing to those who don’t like squash unless it’s doused in sugar. I don’t know if it won her farmer’s sons over, but this flavorful dish has extra kid-appeal when served in an acorn squash bowl. (Melissa and her son recently went apple-picking at Seedling Orchards in South Haven, Michigan.)
From Kelsey at The Naptime Chef, Spiced Apple Cookies
And here at FoodieTots, Spiced Apple Hand Pies
We picked apples at Virginia’s Crooked Run Orchard, reviewed How to Make An Apple Pie and See the World, and baked kid-sized apple hand pies. Yum!
