EXTENSION CONNECTION: 4-H, a recipe for success in the kitchen

Published: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 01:00 PM.

Help kids read directions and follow recipes. They should ensure they have all their ingredients before beginning a cooking project.

If the project requires cutting skills, start simple with something soft like a banana and a plastic knife. Demonstrate the technique and have them try the actions.

And when working with knives — you guessed it! — safety comes first. Lay down these ground rules:

●Cut with caution

●Focus on one task at a time

●Never point a knife at a person

●Always hold the knife by its handle
