  • 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!

  • Ball Blue Book

    I have just learned to can and it seems everyone refers to this book as the "canning bible". There are a few good recipes in here along with the basics of canning which was very helpful. I was also pleasant surprised to receive the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving which has a ton of recipes, some of which I have already tried with great success! I think I'm addicted.!!!

  • Blue Book to Preserving

    This preserving book is one of the easiest to follow as I am fairly new at canning other than using the freezing process. 1) I ordered a second one for a gift as I liked it so well.

  • Too Expensive for 4-H Kids

    While I think it is a great book I can not get kids and their families to purchase it due to the price and mailing costs. I use the book while I am judging to show a resource to kids.
