As part of a class, book club or library program make one of the following recipes.
Talk with students about the process and relate it back to what they read in Peaches (page 161 lists numerous peach dishes).

Learning Opportunities
Cooking activities tap into several educational disciplines:
  • Measuring: math
  • Literacy: reading & following the recipe
  • Social studies: research the recipe history
  • Science: study howcombining unrelated ingredients produces something new

All of these recipes can be completed easily and quickly.
