My mother in law and I began canning recently and the canning books she had inherited were excellent books, but with no expert canner there to help us with the little details, we found ourselves guessing at some places.. So I got her this one for Christmas. It seems to explain EVERY LITTLE THING that you might need to know and for beginning canners that is ESSENTIAL for an excellent product. It was fun too!
