Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite I&rsquo;ve enjoyed preserving food for many years, from canning, to freezing, to dehydrating. However, most of the things I canned were rather basic: green beans, potatoes, and tomato juice. I was excited to receive a copy of this book to expand my abilities from the basics to something a little more imaginative. The Amish Canning Cookbook: Plain and Simple Living at Its Homemade Best by Georgia Varoza has many ideas I had not thought of before. This book is more than recipes; it has a history of canning, a list of tools and supplies you will need, safety instructions, recipes, and guidelines for adapting recipes for your taste. When I think of Amish food, I think of traditional, homemade, and delicious.  This is a high quality book with a spiral binding. That&rsquo;s important in a cookbook because it means it will lay flat, making it easier to read. There is also plenty of room for notes. Canning food is important to me because I know what goes into the foods I have preserved and they taste so much better than store bought. With home canned foods, I don&rsquo;t have to make a trip to the grocery store; I need only to look on the shelf of the pantry. There are two methods to canning, hot water bath and pressure canning. There are also certain foods that should never be canned. The author thoroughly explains all of this and more. There are even menu suggestions. This book will be used again and again at my house and I even purchased several for gifts.

A good canning book that goes beyond the basic one that is offered by the jar manufactures.  I first saw this at my library, and ended up ordering my own copy to own.  The author updates the usual  Amish canning instructions that can be misunderstood  by those of us who were not raised with  their canning lingo. The recipes are a good variety and in quantities that fill the canner, usually. The Clear-Jel (or Perma-flo) is a great product that they use to get the picture-perfect  pie fillings to not clump up like corn starch does.  I found some by searching for Mennonite bulk food stores (not the same as the English bulk food stores) or I have seen it offered online.  The Amish have all the good stuff, it seems. They only buy quality, and they buy stuff in bulk... even powdered pectin. This book  uses the normal  one package powdered or one pouch liquid  for  ease (and sanity) of understanding.  I have tried the pie filling recipes with great success, and am planing to put up some meat items soon -(  Chicken Stew , Chili, Lamb Stew - yum!)     The author is encouraging and gives  enough detail without going over, or not enough info.
