  • Great Guide to Preserving

    I have my mom's Blue Book Guild to Canning from the 1940s. The same quality info is in the new book as in the older one with the exception of some more updated recipes and methods. Recently I bought the new Jelly and Jam Maker. I would like to have seen some recipes in this book for use with my new "toy." When the Jelly and Jam Maker arrived it has some recipes, and I understand that this is a new and state of the art product. When the next edition of the Blue Book Guide to Preserving comes out, I'll be the first in line to get it.

  • Excellent Teaching Guide and Resource

    The Blue Book is an excellent guide for the first-time and regular canner. The instructional information is clear, well-written, and precise without being so technical as to be off-putting, either for water bath or pressure canning. There are many recipes included that are surprisingly interesting and that cover many different types of diets. The only down side is that there is not more information about changing recipes or creating original ones. Overall, this is a bible of a book, one that will be used for generations. Thank you, Ball!

  • Good resource

    After not canning for years, I wanted a good canning resource book. This book is clearly written, easy yo read & beautifully illustrated. After reading the book, I realized that I have to alter processing times due to living on a mountain. I probably knew that in the past but I didn't live on a mountain then , so never paid any attention to it. Book has already paid for itself!

  • This is the best cookbook ever.

    People were always calling me to ask questions about canning. I found a book at a friends then went online to purchase the Ball Bluebook of canning/preserving. I have since purchased another as a gift for another friend.... and will probably purchase more in the future. They make great gifts for cooks and the occassional canner.

  • Blue Book Guide to Preserving

    Nice looking book. Lots of info. Even a novice should have perfect results following these directions. However, I liked the layout style of the earlier books better. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Names have been changed on my favorite pickle relish - it was chow chow for years and now it seems to be piccalilli. The old recipe also listed pounds of tomatoes, etc. that feature has been omitted. Anyone who attempts to "chop" all the vegetables - needs to get a food grinder for their KitchenAid mixer.

  • New edition.

    I love this new larger edition. I have a version from the 60's, which is still great. But the large edition is much easier to read and has great newer recipes. Thank- you for revising an already great book! Got one for me and my daughter. She loves it, too!
