I've been canning and preserving since I was a kid helping my mom make grape jelly and put up frozen fruit. Of course helping someone else preserve food is different than doing everything by yourself. Over time I've slowly built up my own canning and preserving reference library and I've wished there was a an all-in-one book that I could recommend to people just starting out learning how to can and preserve.This dummies book is tailor-made for this purpose covering everything from the simple canning classics (pickles, jams and jellies) to brewing beer/hard cider/mead to making cheese, drying food, freezing food, making sausage, and even canning meats and seafood. No single book I've found has such a broad range of techniques covering all aspects of preserving food by so many methods. There are lots of recipes and examples for every method of food preservation. It really is a one-stop shop for food preservation.If you are interested in canning or preserving food this book is an ideal starter book to help you get started. If you already know how to can or freeze food this book is useful in helping you learn new methods for preserving food and expanding your repertoire. It has earned a place in my reference library.
