Overview

This is not just a canning book but a book on how to process food and store the food.
“Does it pay to save summer foods— vegetables and fruits—for winter?
Does it really pay to do it—or has all the recent agitation for the canning and drying of vegetables and fruits been merely a global recession measure made necessary by the unusual conditions which exist throughout the world ?
Inasmuch as you can save food, even though it be but a single pound, you have contributed directly to the well-being of one of the starving fellow-citizens of the world!
Saving food for winter pays because it prevents waste. The surplus from the home garden, or the cheap products of a glutted summer market, may be kept for the time when vegetable food is scarce and high in price.”F.F. ROCKWELL

    This book gave great information on canning techniques and seed

    This book gave great information on canning techniques and seed gathering. I also enjoyed the chapter on  herbs. I'll be using them more in my cooking.
