Authentic colonial food for kids

fladd | Nov 11, 2001 04:08 PM

I teach 8th grade in New Hampshire and am doing a year-long project with my class about colonial-era traditions. We are talking about food at the moment and I'd like to do a cooking project with my kids. Any suggestions about reasonably authentic recipes we could cook as a class?

My idea is to prepare the ingredient one class period, freeze or refrigerate them until the next class, then put them on to cook during the day.

Restrictions:

They are 13 years old - nuff said.

Obviously, this can't be completely authentic - I certainly won't be serving them hard cider or whiskey.

Can't be TOO far out - I can get them to be adventurous, but probably not too adventurous.

My ideas at the moment - a pork stew with potatoes, onions, parsnips, carrots, etc..., cornbread and indian pudding - maybe with dried apples.

Any thoughts?
