    I liked it

    A lot of vintage recipes, many of which have been converted over to modern processing methods. The recipes that have not been converted are clearly marked and can still be made for short term use. I found the reprints of old articles charming and even amusing. Times have sure changed!

    This is more a recipe book than a process guide, but would be a valuable addition to your canning library.

    Oh well.....

    Had i read what the book was truly about BEFORE i bought it i probably wouldn't have. NONE of the recipes were safe to use so basically its just stories about how things were done years ago..definately not worth buying.
