Simply the best book for making low-sugar fruit preserves! I love to be able to taste the fruit, not the sugar, when I eat jam and preserves, so I decided to make my own. After searching high and low for a comprehensive book of recipes, I've found that this is the only one I need. I love that the recipes are set up in such a way as to allow multiplying and dividing of a batch. Perfect for making a few jars for gift giving. Haven't tried the pickles yet, but my family and friends have told me that the recipes from this book are the best they've ever tasted. One caveat: it has always taken me much more time to cook the fruit than the recipe states. Now that I know that, I just allow more time.
Fantastic! Great recipes!

This is fantastic! I've started canning just this year. I bought four canning books, and 90% of the canning I've done has been from this one. Super for small batches, but they're easily converted to larger ones. Fantastic for the home gardener--even if you have a small garden. There are great recipes for salsa, tomato sauces, pickles of all flavors, hot peppers, & jardineres.
A must for home canners.

This cookbook does not look like much from the outside, but the recipes inside are a must for anyone who makes their own pickles, jams, or jellies. The recipes are simple to follow and there is a lot of variety to choose from. The Tarragon Green Beans are always a hit for me.
