5.0 out of 5 stars Can you can , I can ? 7 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has been my first recent path thorough the minefield of preserving home made food in glass jars since my parents did it in the 1930's through to the 1960's.
My parents used big old thick heavy glass Kilner jars with glass lids , screw bands and rubber sealing gaskets .. they did all manner of thing then that were current best knowledge/ practice to sterilize the jar contents under heat to preserve the food therein.

This book being written much later than the knowledge my parent had ( they've been dead nearly 40 years )is much more refined , several of the " canning " methods my parents used are now proven to have been the source of fatal cases botulism etc..
Even today you'll see slop jockey's on TV messed up food shows with a couple of shelves of things laughingly referred to as preserving /storage jars, that are not safe to try and preserve food in even if it is only salted pickled stuff.

Getting the most up to date publications ( like this book ) about canning soon tells you to ignore what you see on the TV mass viewing soap opera type programmes .

We appear to find a big split in preserving foods in glass jars .. The Americans use their university extensions and government food agency sources for tried and tested approved recipes that cover hot water bath canning for acidic foodstuff and high pressure canning in a specialist high pressure canner for low acid products.

On this side of the Atlantic we tend to find more recipes for the acidic foods like pickles and hot water bath canning .

5.0 out of 5 stars A much improved and very nice basic guide 31 Oct 2011
By LWeener - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This second edition is much nicer and have a lot more content.
I got the 1st edition a few weeks ago and while interesting it was not the most easy to use. It was also lacking some important (in my view) information like the altitude adjustment. I have been canning my garden veg. for the past 10 years and I can confirm that the info was all A-OK but not very nicely presented.

In this second edition, the authors seem to have resolved all the shortcoming of the first one. It now include a lot more info and tables with processing time and pressure. Some interesting web links, to reference documents and sites, are also included.

I also like the recipes list. They are basic ones but very nicely formatted and sorted by level of complexity.

Overall; for a book that is sold 0.99 (free after the rebate when I got it) it is a great resource that should be very useful to anyone interested in home canning.

4.0 out of 5 stars great help from Amazon Home canning 19 April 2012
By Diane - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a garden and hopefully it is going to do good
I needed to know a few things. Like why my tomatoes
ruined even though the jar sealed, this helped me
to know to add salt to the top of tomatoes
before sealing. Not to turn the jars upside down
like with other jared items.
great down load

Tremblay, Edith; Lafleur, Francois (2011-06-21). JeBouffe Home Canning Step by Step Guide (second edition) Revised and Expanded (Kindle Location 2). JeBouffe. Kindle Edition. This book provides a quick and simple overview of canning methods and what you will need.

The book will not replace some of the other canning books available for basic canning, but would be a handy reference to use. I feel it is more useful to someone who already has a bit of experience with canning than for the person who is trying it for the first time.

There are some interesting new recipes included, and listed with a scale of difficulty. I intend to try the mango chutney this year! It sounds great.
