Ball Blue Book Of Canning And Preserving Recipes 2.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

This book is chucked full of recipes, ones you may never thought of like Cataloupe pickles or mincemeat made the old-fashioned way with real meat or even how to can Headcheese (kind of an old time Spam) or even your own TABASCO sauce!... BUT you will need some canning experience to update the canning methods to meet the new recommendations from the USDA - some ways mentioned are out dated, some of the poundage for pressure canning is too high or too low, but an experienced canner should be able to spot the errors made in the past and "fix" them to meet our modern knowledge. Don't skip this book just because it's old, or because it states old-fashioned ideas. But do be prepared for small charts which are hard to read - I have the Nook version which I access through a computer so I can get around the small images but those who buy the paperback may wish to either enlarge them on a copy machine or get a really good magnifier glass

This is an overpriced little "classic" that seems to be the result of someone wishing to make a book that can fit daintily into a handbag. The writing is so tiny-font size 6 maybe- that you need a magnifying glass to read it. Blotchy 1940's black and white illustrations of jellies are handy visual aids to searching for particular recipes-"if that is a pepper of page 20 a recipe for peppers must be around here somewhere". Nice index that you can squint at wondering, "is this page 48 or page 28? Altogether, I warn you, don't do it!

This book is so out of date and touch it was funny and slightly offensive. Makes reference to victory gardens and wifely duty. I needed/wanted facts and instructions on how to can not war propaganda. FYI the published date is the e-book conversion.
