What is an apple basic

Sometime people are so familiar with things that they do not know one is the other.  That is a chicken lays an egg, which a shop then sells. That egg white comes from the inside of the egg!  Or in this case an apple may be made into apple juice and apple pulp then used in two different recipes.

So the Guides were shown that if they peel several apples, core them, chop them up into pieces (sizes as evenly as possible) then cook these pieces aver a heat sauce with a little water you actually end up with a mixture from which the stained juice is apple juice and the remaining stuff in the strainer is the apple puree.

Cool and use as soon as possible.

But what do you use it for. So over time they have been shown the following: Apple juice, Apple Puree, Salad dressing, Apple pancakes.

Salad dressing

2 cloves garlic crushed

1 tsp whole grain mustard

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp vinegar ( was recomeneded to have balasamic vinegar but we used what was on hand.)

1 tsp box honey (some one was allegic to honey so out came the brown sugar)

60 ml unsweetened apple juice.

1 tsbp extra virgin oil

Everything went into a whisk and was combined.  Mix was chilled and used on salads.  Makes only about 100mls per mix.  Therefore is an easy recipe for the Guides to learn and pass on.  A great way of using several steps to complete a multi level learning task.
