Ive looked through it and it has great charts and explanations for the process. However in the back there is one small typo that incorrectly stated what the boiling point of water does at altitude. Which made the altitude section a little confusing. the boiling point of water goes DOWN the higher the altitude is. So at sea level, 212 degrees F, at 5000 ft 202.
Otherwise this book is fantastic for the canning process giving me ideas and providing plenty of pictures. I was actually surprised at how useful the book was, when I purchased it for 17 dollars I was expecting to only use the pickle and peach recipes, but the entire book has provided useful so far.
Since I was able to keep this book I put it to good use. I have made numerous recipes including "Hot-Style Chili Sauce" page 144 and "Farmers Market Corn Salsa" page 122. All of the recipes I have tried so far have ROCKED!! If you're looking for a canning book for HIGH ACID canning this book wont disappoint.
