Putting Food By is as necessary to the home-canning library as the historical stand-by Ball Blue Book. This family classic - now updated to a fifth edition - is the essential guide for everybody from old pros that have been canning since they could clutch a hot mitt to beginning canners who still aren't sure which end of the jar goes up. Opening with a brief overview of the home-preserving process, the authors go on to detail the scientific components of canning, salting, drying, and pickling processes. Emphasis is placed on the reader understanding the "why" behind all of these activities, so that home preserves of any kind can be made without error and with complete comprehension of the simple science behind it all. This handy compendium provides not only detailed instructions for the rudiments of canning everything from applesauce to beef stew, but each chapter is replete with recipes and variations on a theme. In a time when cutting down on waste and preserving at home are in vogue, this simple guide is an indispensable reference.

Just bought the new edition to teach a class on canning. Best comprehensive book on food preservation out there. I have been using some edition of this book for almost 30 years. Contains the how to's and some great recipes. Covers all aspects of food preservation including drying, freezing and root cellars along with boiling water bath and pressure canning. New editions are up to date with the USDA guidelines.
