The Ball Blue Book of Canning
But, THANK YOU Grandpa and Grandma for planting the seed of food preservation. The seedling became a full grown plant last summer when I did my very first pressure and water-bath canning. I won't deny it was hard work but very fun and very fulfilling! There is nothing as pretty as a shelf full of jams jars. =)
The Ball Blue Book of Preserving was my road map and I'd like to share one with one of you!! It's chock full of colored pictures, step by step instructions for both water bath and pressure canning, and lots of recipes. I will do the drawing next Wednesday (April 28th) and there are a couple different ways for you to enter:
