Kids books for the Canning Season

Inspired by this post, I thought I would go through all of the children's books I have in the Autumn book basket right now and pull out the ones that feature canning. I was amazed at how many there were! I have tried to find the ones in my inspiration list at the library, but alas, aside from the two I own (Blueberries for Sal and Autumn Story) I wasn't able to find the others on short notice. (I reserved them from a neighboring library though. Gotta love library share!)

Notice that many of these books also feature apples. We are on a apple kick in this house right now. We have several more apple books that have recipes in them as well... however, those are for pie and not for applesauce. In with the list I have also included lots of links to our favorite recipes and canning adventures! Enjoy!

Here is the list:

The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree

Cider making is a favorite activity around here! We are gearing up to go to our local farm and make cider next weekend as a matter of fact! (2009 cider making. 2008 cider making.)

Blueberries for Sal (one of my all time favorite books)

My favorite Blueberry Jam recipe (which everyone should try at least once!)

Apple Farmer Annie

Strawberry Applesauce Cook-a-long

Hurry, Hurry, Mary Dear

The best apple jelly in the world!

Autumn Story

And of course, keeping a pantry (and nuts) like a little mouse!

Hey, thanks for the link! (I'm just now getting through a backlog of blog reading after a long weekend away from the computer.) Reading to the kids this week, I realized I'd forgotten the obvious "Autumn" by Gerda Muller, with blackberry (?) jam.
