Santa bought me this edition because my 25-year old fourth edition was beginning to get a bit tattered. I've noticed a couple of changes based on updated USDA guidelines, but otherwise the same sage advice. If you need lots of pretty pictures to help you to preserve your bounty, this may not be the book for you, but it will always have a place on my kitchen shelf.
Opening with a brief overview of the home-preserving process, the authors go on to detail the scientific components of canning, salting, drying, and pickling processes. Emphasis is placed on the reader understanding the "why" behind all of these activities, so that home preserves of any kind can be made without error and with complete comprehension of the simple science behind it all.
This handy compendium provides not only detailed instructions for the rudiments of canning everything from applesauce to beef stew, but each chapter is replete with recipes and variations on a theme. In a time when cutting down on waste and preserving at home are in vogue, this simple guide is an indispensable reference.
