4.0 out of 5 stars Very good Aug. 29 2010
By K. Matheny - Published on Amazon.com
My husband and I just moved into a house with a fantastic yard for gardening and 5 peach and nectarine trees. We got this book to help up preserve all the precious fruit this fall.

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.

I have many home canning books. This is one of the best. I have canned for 7 years so I know the process. But if I just started I would highly recommend this book. Once again Better Homes and Gardens did a great job.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good beginners book. Aug. 17 2011
By S. Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
This book is very well organized and is full of useful information for beginners. I have used several of the recipes. Some have turned out beautiful and some had to be trashed despite having followed the recipes exactly. I've also noticed that some of the beautiful pictures are not accurate reflections of the recipes which I find very dissappointing. For example, the recipe will say to dice the peppers but in the picture the peppers were used whole. It does discuss sodium reduction despite what another reviewer claims. I would buy this book again, it's certainly worth the money for all the information. Just be careful with the recipes or you will be out several pounds of figs.

No dancing around this, you can can! This book is basic enough to get your rolling AND has a decent assortment of recipes to try. My garden was not as prosperous as I would have liked this year but next year, look out - and I plan on using a lot more of the recipes from this book to handle my bounty.

4.0 out of 5 stars You Can "Water Bath Can" Feb. 17 2012
By JeepinJesse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If your looking for low acid food recipes look elsewhere. This book only has THREE low acid pressure canning recipes. Great if you have a water bath caner. Crappy if you want to try out your new pressure canner. Full disclosure on this would have been helpful. Course Amazon rocks and let me keep the book when I went to return the item. Go Amazon!!

-Big Jesse


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.
