  • I buy this every year.

    I love this simple, go to manual. It gives me quick access to all the basics. I only wish it took canning to the gourmet level or maybe a gourmet edition.

  • This was a replacement for the Jelly jars

    The book is fine but it is for canning and I purchased a Jelly maker. The bonus was a set of 12 jelly jars, and I do not think this was an appropriate replacement.

  • Jam etc

    I love making jam for sandwiches, yogurt and porridge. I use maple syrup instead of sugar for the taste. A glass of home made anything makes a terrific gift. Now that I have this book, I will look into vegetable pickling and preserving. I love to entertain with scratch-cooking.

  • Best Little Canning Book Ever

    My mom gave me her canning book from the 1950's. After 35 years of using, it was in shreds. I replaced it with the current Ball Blue Book and found it was even more resourceful than the old one. A must for ever canner!
