Sixteenth Sunday of Pentecost

We Remember Our Call to Make Lasting Fruit

John 15: 16

Buy or make some marzipan (the recipe is in the Joy of Cooking) - both marzipan and almond paste are available in Scandinavian and Italian delicatessens and some supermarkets.

Divide the marzipan and add food coloring, drop by drop - for each ten drops of food coloring, knead in two tablespoons of powdered sugar. The colors will become quite bright, and the marzipan will have the texture of modeling clay.

Let the children make small fruits (one-half to one inches in height) from the various colors, and provide paper plates and plastic wrap to take their edible fruits home. Air-dry to harden.

Traditionally the marzipan is left uncolored and painted with diluted food coloring and small brushes, but this may be too messy for small children.
