I have learned so much from trying a few of the recipes and handy tips.

The Ball book (I guess the Kerr version isn't made anymore since Jarden owns both brands) is so very good as a starter for people interested in canning.

If you are a beginner, this is an excellent start book with simple instructions and easy recipes.

This book is great! It not only covers canning, but also covers other methods of food preservation. All the recipes I tried worked great and the canning directions are very clear. Definitely worth the low price!!!

First, the Ball blue book is at Wal-Mart for $5.95 on the shelf in the canning supplies; why Amazon is charging more, plus of course the shipping, is beyond me.

I did a lot of canning in the 80's when I had a local farmer's market. Quit canning twenty years ago when I moved into my present home. Have fairly recently gotten interested again since retirement, purchased two new All American canners, still have my 80's Mirro 8 quart.

I used the blue book in the 80's, it was the first thing I went looking for. People should enjoy reading old canning books if they like, like I do, but technology and requirements change, along with some supplies. For example, if we go to the canning forums, we learn that the crummy Chinese canning jars at Wal-Mart have had many problems compared to our American-made Kerr and Ball jars.

The Ball book (I guess the Kerr version isn't made anymore since Jarden owns both brands) is so very good as a starter for people interested in canning. I think for some reason a lot of newbies are frightened off by the prospect of botulism, etc. Actually, we are fortunate in this country to have great canners in a wide range of prices and capacities, and that canning supplies are still easily available. For many years I thought only in terms of fruit and vegetables for canning. Now, I know better. Canning meat is not hard, is not risky, and the Ball book guided me through my first beef and chicken.

I live on the Texas Gulf coast in the Houston area; when Hurricane Ike came in down here my home was undamaged but I was without electricity for nearly a month. Gasoline was so scarce that generators weren't useful for that period of time.

I'm impressed with the amount of information in such a tiny package! I refer to this book 1st when considering my canning options. Sometimes it doesn't have the recipe I need, but most times it does. I'm very happy to own this book. It even has a section on dehydrating & freezing! This is probably worth more than it's price!

If you are a beginner, this is an excellent start book with simple instructions and easy recipes. When I began canning, it was the first book I used, although I later purchased Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving for more recipes.

This book is more focused on water bath canning, although it also gives instructions for low acid (pressure cooker) canning. My first recipes were making jellies from juices I bought at the store, something that you usually can't go wrong with.

If you are wondering if canning is for you, I suggest that you buy this book even before investing in canning equipment. It will give you a solid basis of knowledge that will help you decide if canning is for you, and what kinds of equipment you want to buy.

This is my third Ball Blue Book. It is a wealth of info about canning. I have canned for years and have several different books, but this is the book I refer to each and every time. I bought this copy because mine have a habit of growing legs. I dont mind, like to share the fun!

This is the best resource book to have for those who are just starting out canning, as well as for those of us who have been canning for many years.

I love the troubleshooter section, especially if I can't find the answer anywhere else. I suggest this book to any and all who are interested in canning and home storage.

Love it!

The Ball Blue canning book is not as good as the Kerr canning book. Maybe it is a matter of taste but I found this one a bit cluttered.

Wonderful book for the beginning and intermediate preserver! I've been canning all my life, but this book has been a great resource for recipes as I've been trying new jam and jelly recipes the past few years. The blueberry jam is outstanding!

Great instruction for beginning canners concerning equipment and general instructions on times and processes.

Just a great overall go-to book when you are looking to can nearly anything (it has a section on meat too if you are into that). I find a lot of recipes online, but I have to admit I ALWAYS double check quantities and general measurements with this recipe book before I experiment with a new recipe to make sure it's in the ballpark. I think this as a basis book that most preserving homes should have on-hand.
