The book is great if you have never canned before, and you are looking for basics. The book gives just enough information to help you understand why you are to do something a certain way, but it doesn't get any more advanced that that. Also, the recipes are very simple, and you would probably find more with your pressure canner. So I'm not all that impressed. It also doesn't cover what to do if you have to keep an ingredient out, due to allergies, or because you don't like it. I think it's important to know when it's okay to change a recipe and when it's not, and I just don't think this book quite covers it well enough. Now, I do a lot of canning, and have for many years, I bought the book as a gift for a friend, but decided to read it first to make sure it covers what I wanted her to know. So my review might not be fair due to my personal experience.
