the appetizer:

The Green Princess Cookbook by Barbara Beery includes healthy, environmentally-friendly recipes for kids like Organic Orchard Salsa, Cornbread in a Recycled Can, and So-Good Soba Noodle Nests.



Organic Orchard Salsa

Serves 4-6



  • 2 organic apples (any type), peeled and cut into chunks
  • 5 organic apricots, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 2 organic plums, peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Organic Orchard Salsa

Place apples, apricots, plums, and honey in a saucepan.

Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Mixture should simmer but not boil.

Remove from heat, add vanilla, and cool 10 minutes. Crush fruits lightly with a potato masher or fork.

Serve immediately with Cinnamon-Maple Crisps (page 20 of the book) or with yogurt and granola. It also makes a great topping for ice cream or frozen yogurt. You can store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Green Cuisine Tip

Organic food is grown, raised, or manufactured by farmers using only natural ingredients. A product can be labeled "organic," only after the farm where the food is grown is inspected to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. The next time you are in the grocery store, look for the certified USDA organic label.
