    Hipsters and foodies will love this beginner's guide to canning, which makes a great case for how easy and inexpensive making your own pickles, jams, soups, and stews can be (after an initial investment in equipment). The book walks you through everything you need to know, from the grocery store to the kitchen, including what kind of jars to buy, the best times to buy certain produce, and what to look for if you buy your pressure canner secondhand. A great mix of simple and more difficult recipes, sweets and savories, and some low sugar/low sodium recipes as well.

    Really enjoyed this book. I have always wanted to try out canning, given that I enjoy making home-cooked healthy meals. This book was a great help in providing concise but extensive information on the different types of canning (water bath and pressure canning) as well as a bunch of helpful recipes. Since buying this book, I have tried out so many different types of foods and jellies that I had not previously eaten. This book was a great way to extend my cooking skills and helped me to appreciate my food even more.

    This great guide provides not only instructions from start to finish on how to can all kinds of foods and the equipment needed to do so, but excellent recipes for canning almost everything you can think to eat! Additionally, the glossary at the end of the book helps to clarify any terms used in the guide that the reader does not understand. I would highly recommend this comprehensive guide both to anyone who would like to learn how to can their foods, or to 'canners' looking for new and delicious recipes to add to their canning repertoire!

    I bought Canning for Beginners because I was interested in saving fresh vegetables I grew in my garden.
    This book explained exactly how I should can my foods, what type of canning to do depending on the food,
    and different recipes to try now that I'm starting to can things. I found the diagrams and pictures especially
    helpful in learning the canning process. Now, I am going store can foods in my basement so I can enjoy my
    garden all year long.

    Really does take the mystery out of home canning.
    This book reviews the history of home canning and reasons canning has made such a comeback. With enough detail for the layperson it delves into the two methods of canning and when to use each. The charts, lists, and descriptions, along with easy-to-follow recipes, provide the beginner a great foundation to begin their home canning adventure.

    I found this book to be very helpful as a beginning canner.  The majority of the directions were very easy to follow and the recipes were simple and were presented with different variations making me excited to begin another batch.  My only complaint is that some of the terms were unfamiliar but, overall, think this is a great start!

    A good introduction to canning.  The explanations are clear and easy to follow, and there is advice about how to reduce the chance of spoilage. There are a lot of recipes, from basic stuff to interesting flavor combos.  I really like the low-salt and low-sugar section at the end.  It gave me some good ideas about how to reduce my kids’ sugar intake by making more stuff at home (especially jam and canned fruit.)

    This book has taken away any apprehension about taking on a canning project.  The easy step by step
    processes described for water canning and pressure canning combined with a list of supplies and
    easy to follow recipes are inviting and intriguing. Including a glossary with all the  canning terms is an
    added bonus. The only problem now is what to try first!

    This book is very helpful. I was scared to can it looked very time consuming. After reading through the book I felt a little more confident about the canning process. The recipes are easy to follow. The steps on how to can are helpful. They even give you websites if you need more information. Everything you need in one book. One thing that I really liked was that there were low sodium and low sugar recipes. I can't wait to try the mango salsa and to make apple butter.

    For several hundreds of years, canning was common in households during the winter months. This book gives you nines chapters of common foods that can be canned by using a water bathing canner or a pressure canner. It gives explicit instructions on the water bath method, which is the best way for a beginner to start canning because it is somewhat cheaper and less involved. It also describes in great detail instructions to can foods with pressure canning using a stove-top or electric pressure canner. Foods that can be canned include perfect pickles, jams, jellies, preserves, salsas, relishes, low sodium and low sugar recipes, fruits, vegetables, and poultry. This is a must read for all you cooks out there who want good and cheap food.

    I love my fresh picked peaches and tomatoes so now I can have them all year long. I found that the Water Bath way of preserving worked best for me because it was easy and the equipment was relatively cheap. The directions were so easy to follow that now I am going to try my hand at some of their jam recipes.

    The perfect primer: accessible, logical, comprehensive. It covers waterbath canning for acidic foods, like fruits and vegetables, and pressure canning for low-acid foods, like meat, poultry and fish, where botulism is a concern. With its food charts, check lists, and wide selection of classic recipes, this is the only such book you'll likely ever need.
