Cinnamon Apples, Austin Independent Schools
Steven Burke, foodservice chef at the Austin Independent School District, has revamped more than 125 recipes in an attempt to make his district's menu healthier. One of the district's mainstays was a Glazed Apples recipe. To make it healthier, Burke replaced the butter with a no-fat butter substitute and decreased the sugar by 63%.
