Format: Paperback
I have only tried the recipe for Traditional English Marmalade on page 65 but it turned out fantastically.

I did, however, have to macgyver the recipe in regards to how much water to use because the precise amount is not specified ?

Only a generalized amount is ? I ended up using 10 cups of water.

I will try the True Blueberry Jam shortly and update this review.

Lots of great recipes in this book, great pictures and lots of excellent advice as well.

A great buy for the home canner !

This has become my go-to book for interesting jams, jellies and pickles. Everything I've tried has been fantastic, including gingered pear jam, pickled rosemary carrots, and I'm currently trying to decide which green tomato recipe to make and considering the watermelon rind pickles. Excellent instructions.

Every thing was great except I received Small-Batch Preserving by Ellie Topp not Mary Anne Dragan. I still really want the Mary Anne Dragan book.
Thank you

Canning Recipes June 17 2009
By Amy M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is great for the person who wants to can five to six batches of jam. The recipes are very easy to follow, and there are lots of different canning recipe on the book unlike some canning books which are a few canning recipes and lots of recipes on how to use you finished product.

Well Done Indeed July 22 2013
By Rabid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I own lots of canning books. In my neighborhood I am known as "The Jelly and Jam" person.

This nice little book has lots of recipes--and not the dull ones you see in every book. Really, how often do you want to make Strawberry Jam? It's good but...it can also be fun and even more tasty.

I've never had one of this woman's recipes fail, and that's a lot better than most recipe collections.

I also like it that the recipes are simple, direct, and to the point. A beginner would have great luck with them.

Two days ago I made "True Blueberry Jam," which is the real, old-fashioned deal. The neighbors all said: this is great--most are way too sweet and I hate that. This is perfect.

She also covers the point that some fruit pits contain cyanide. I've always been wary of that when preserving/cooking. Many old recipes instruct the use of whole fruits or the inclusion of pits as flavoring agents--but those recipes often date back many decades. Her focus is on maximal safety--as it should be.

One of my favourite canning books!! June 25 2011
By N. Bergeron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love this book, it's full of unique recipes for all sorts of fruits and veggies. I love that they are small batches because really, who wants 25 pints of jam? I have tried many recipes from this book and everything has turned out great. I especially love her pickled asparagus and pickled green beans. Highly recommend this book for the casual at home canner.

Great Book for Small Families July 7 2013
By Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well written book with lots of extra information about canning. I especially like the fact that it included information on what stage of ripeness should be used and why some pickles come out soft - I've been putting up pickles for over 40 years and this is the first time I discovered what caused my pickles to suddenly turn out soft when I moved from a farm to town. Thank You!
