The spiced peaches and icebox pickles, dilly beans and tomatoes in every shape and form, the blackberry jam and hot pepper jelly--it’s summer, and a whole world of summers past, in a jar. Pack the pantry the way Grandma did, and put away the sweetest fruits and preserves, the most tender savory vegetables, the taste of the sunny day and the scent of the crisp harvest air, with more than 250 blue-ribbon canning and preserving recipes culled from The Farmer’s Wife magazine. A reliable resource for the farm wife, the new mother, the suburban transplant, the magazine shared recipes that made the kitchen sing and the family sigh with contentment. Along with instructions for canning and preserving fruits and vegetables from your garden or the farmer’s market, this wonderful cookbook, like an old family friend, offers recipes for using the tomato sauce, raspberry jam, peaches, and other tasty fruits and vegetables that you’ve “put by.”

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.
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.
