    Good value with very usable formulas and suggestions

    I purchased this book after seeing a review in the Seattle newspaper. I have made several of the rhubarb based items, as well as a couple of others. Smaller quanties than used in more traditional sources works better, and outcomes were all well flavored.

    This book is a "KEEPER".

    LOVE this book!

    I'm a new canner. Last year I did a batch of Cherry Jelly & Sweet Pickle Relish as a first time canner. I got this book this year, and so far have made the Sweet Cherry Plum Jam & I just finished making the Nectarine Lime Jam. The recipes are super easy to follow, and pretty fast to make too! Both are very tasty, from what I can tell tasting them out of the pot before I clean up. :) I'm making the pickled sweet cherries next, can't seem to find pickling salt around me so I had to order it on Amazon. I know this can vary, but my yields have been less than stated in the book. I didn't get nearly has much of the Cherry as the book stated, I think even less than half! I doubled the Nectarine Lime Jam today, and I got 5 pints which isn't too far off of the 6 a double recipe should have yielded.

    I've purchased several canning books over the past year, and I keep turning back to this one, because the recipes sound yummy & they are easy. Some books I have the recipes span over a timeline of 3 days! I'm not really ready for that yet...in the meantime, this book is PERFECT!

    Best book i own...

    I have many canning books, but this ine is by far my favorite, simply for the reason that they are small batches of amazing recipes. If however you have a less succesful batch, you arent out tons of ingredients or jars etc. Plus it's just a beautiful, well written book!

    Borrowed this book, Canning for a New Generation and Blue Chair

    Borrowed this book, Canning for a New Generation and Blue Chair Jam Cookbook from the library to see who I liked best. The other two are great for figuring out what to do when you have time to plan it all out. This book is also good for that but is the book to keep in the kitchen to help you out on a more day-to-day basis. Its not just jams or pickles it has mustard, it has baking mixes, it has everything to help you be prepared at all times. Love it.
