    I've owned previous Ball Blue Books and was hoping to get a replacement of my favorite recipes (i.e. Freezer Slaw) with no such luck. Did not care for any of the items in this issue.

  • Damaged when received

    Box was sitting in rain and soaked. Book wet and damaged. Box fell apart. Jars were wrapped in plastic and fine but book was on top and was dripping when I took it out of the box. I want to return it but can't return it in original packaging as it designing rated. I'm very disappointed. I love my old Ball Blue books and wanted the anniversary one!
