Almond Butter Sandwiches (For all ages!)

The Education Committee has been cultivating a relationship with our neighbors over at the Fort Greene Council on Fulton Street, aiming to share information and good food with members of our Bed-Stuy community. We recently made a second visit to the center, and our apple sandwiches with almond butter were a hit with tasters of all ages!  Here is the recipe.
