Better Homes and Gardens You Can Can


Though relatively new to canning, I have already grown bored with some of the recipes out there. I personally only have so much use for jams and jellies and would love more ideas for my peppers. This book offers fantastic recipes - personal favorites are the pickled dilled green beans, Indian cauliflower and farmer's market corn salsa. Even the jelly recipes are tasty!

Beyond just great recipes, it also offers easy to understand step by step directions for canning. I remember before I started canning, I tabled it for a while because other books looked difficult to understand and follow. This book offers steps in language that non-canners will understand and offers photographs and descriptions of all the items you will need, including produce.

Other pluses of the book are its good use of white space (each page has just one recipe) and beautiful use of pictures. This book is a must read for anyone interested in canning.
