5.0 out of 5 stars A much improved and very nice basic guide October 31, 2011
By LWeener
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 April 19, 2012
By Diane
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners, very basic August 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good book for starters, & for people to read if they're not sure about canning. It gives a very basic understanding of the process, but that's about it. There are also a few recipes to start with. The biggest issue I had with it, is the poor grammar, spelling, & punctuation. I assume it is due to a language barrier, but it made some things really hard to understand.

2.0 out of 5 stars A lot of grammatical errors April 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was decent. It could have been a little more descriptive in the recipes. Each page had many grammar issues. I would not recommend it for a beginner. I'm glad it was free.
