I learned everything I know about canning from Ball's Blue Book. This book takes many of their standard recipes and updates them, adds many new recipes, and gives loads of tips on every step from choosing produce to trouble shooting what went wrong.

I would recommend this book to seasoned canners to try new flavors and ingredients as well as to beginners who will get reliable, tested directions for this rewarding endeavor. ( )

There are a lot of great recipes in this book that I can't wait to try... once fresh fruit is in season in New England again. I've already made the jalapeno salsa and it was so delicious that I ate an entire half pint with one meal! This would be a great reference book to have around, but I'm not sure if I'd be willing to pay full price for it. ( )

A better title would be The Complete Book of Home Water-Bath Canning. It's not complete because home preserving includes dehydrating, freezing and pressure canning as well.

The recipes are good, leaning towards the unique rather than the basics. Everything I have tried has turned out well. ( )

Great book full of different canning recipes. It also has tips and instructions for the beginning canner but the variety of recipes makes it a must for canners of any experience level. ( )

Very concise and easy to understand instructions. I made the "golden gossip" chutney first. The end result was fantastic, but I didn't have all the ingredients prepped before hand and it took me longer than I thought because of it. I have two recipes marked to try next: zesty zucchini relish & achar (south asian pickle). ( )
