Canning or freezing food is a wonderful way to spend time together with family and friends. There is also the great advantage of knowing exactly what is in your food. Gotta like that. Author, Lisa Amstutz, tells the generational tale of a family and their day of apple sauce making. From the tree to the freezer the reader comes along as this family recreates a decades old family tradition of “Applesauce Day”. Well written and beautifully illustrated. Even includes a recipe to make on your own applesauce day. Amazing apple facts complete this lovely tale.


Maria and her family visit an apple orchard and pick apples. Then it’s time to turn the apples into applesauce! Every year they use the special pot that has been in the family for generations to make applesauce. First they wash the apples. Then Grandma cuts them into quarters. Follow each step in the process as everyone helps to make delicious applesauce!
