3.0 out of 5 stars BALL Complete Book of Home Preserving, November 11, 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving (Paperback)
This book is great for beginners or those with little experience in canning - especially pressure canning.

Lots of recipes and instructions though a little higher-priced than I would have thought.

For the experienced canner there is little in this book that you can't find online with a little effort through various recipe websites or other information resources.

If you are just starting or learning the art of canning I recommend the book. However, for the rest of us it isn't worth the expenditure.

You raise a really good point. Now, I absolutely LOVE this book and gave it 5 stars, but after I bought it, I discovered by searching the internet, I think ALL of these recipes are on their website. Now when people ask me about my book, instead of loaning it to them, I refer them to homecanning.com.

I can tell you from experience that NOT all the recipes are online (at least not on the Ball site). But for me, I would have to know the recipe existed for me to think of looking for it online. This way they are all together in one easy to use reference. I turn to it over and over.
