5.0 out of 5 stars THE bible of canning & freezing fruit, vegetables, jams, etc, August 12, 2004
By 
This review is from: Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving (Paperback)
A must-have book if you want to can, freeze, make jam, applesauce, pickles, etc., whether you have an expensive pressure canner or a simple large pot. My grandmother had a copy of this book when I was a child. The recipes are simple and tested by generations. The instructions are clear and use standard kitchen supplies. There is also a nice section that explains how water bath canning works and how to do it right. With this book and a nearby pick-your-own farm (I find them at [...]) you can get the fruit inexpensively then make your own jam, preserves, applesauce, etc without chemicals or preservatives.

I've been searching online for local farms to no avail (within 60 miles of where I live). Never heard of pick-your-own farm, so I checked out the site you mentioned in your review. Great site! I just found a farm within 40 miles. Thanks for the informative review.

Yes, thanks for the site. I used their recipe for freezing figs. Excellent fig jam directions too.
