A real disappontment, 15 Mar. 2013
Unfortunately this is not the book it appears to be.
The canning recipes are for hot water canning only. There are NO pressure canning recipes. Not one.
The book is essentially a jam making and pickling book. However, if you are hoping to make some interesting new jam and pickle recipes to preserve your crops or windfalls you will be very disappointed. None of the techniques described are new or innovative.
Many of the recipes require the addition of unusual ingredients which increases your costs and rather obviated the point of canning your produce in the first place.
You will be far better served by plenty of other books so, unless your library is crying out for a fairly redundant repetition of your current knowledge of simple vegetarian preserving techniques, look elsewhere.
