Making an Apple Cookbook

This would make a frugal family or homeschool project. It will teach math, reading, life skills and more.

You would first need to do some online research about the elements you would like  added to the cookbook. Some suggestions are:

table of contents

this for that information

measurement information

information on the different types of apples

classify baking apples

information on freezing apples, or the finished recipes

why you should never eat apple seeds (hint: poison)

Apple Star Story


You may also want to add a photograph of finished recipes, or of your children making each recipe.  A nice two-page spread would be the recipe and picture on one page, and a journaled story about making or eating the dish on the next page.

You may also want to make this book in the shape of an apple for something fun to do.

You will want to use only your favorite holiday/harvest apple recipes, so you will have to try them all out first. This can be a lot of fun. You will also want to make sure that you now how to prepare relevant recipes for the freezer.
