Melody’s First Apple Pie

P1120635P1120638P1120641P1120647

Melody helped assist me in baking an apple pie for her home school (though I’m more likely to call what we do un-schooling) home economics class this month! I found a recipe by Martha Stewart for an Old-Fashioned Apple Pie but adjusted the recipe to our liking (I basically left out the lemon juice).  Though she probably could have, I personally shaved and cut the apples. Next time I’ll let Melody do that since shortly after baking the pie, I invested in a Apple Mate 3 which cores, peels, and pares apples which makes that whole process easy and fun.

Baking with Melody was great because she got to read a recipe, learn about measurements, and  baking times. Our verdict is that kitchen chemistry is pretty tasty when following the direction correctly. She did a good job with everything and the pie was extremely delicious! In all honesty, it didn’t last long! We didn’t make a pie crust from scratch this time but perhaps we will next time.

Inviting my daughter into the kitchen has built her confidence, allowed her independence,  and it’s teaching her a skill that will be relevant in her life.

When did you first introduce your child(ren) into the kitchen? Is there something special they love to prepare for the family & friends?

    Mmmmm! Good job, Melody! We have yet to make a pie but Jade has been asking so I guess we’d better get to it soon. I will probably get some canned peaches and berries and mix them to make a pie – my grandma used to do that and it was always so yummy. 🙂
