The 100th Anniversary issue is the same book as the past few years, and the same as the current 2013 issue
except for the seal in the bottom RH corner which says 100th anniversary.
The anniversary issue was printed for a very short time earlier in 2013 ~ Jarden is now printing 2013 books,
but has moved on ~ no longer printing the seal on the cover.
I live near Muncie, Ind where Ball first started ~ and one would think this area would be inundated with this version
but on the contrary this book isn't available here either. The maker of the Blue book is also close bye (20 min) in Daleville, Ind.
I talked to them ~ they don't have it ~ can't get it ~ and aren't printing it any longer.
I was particularly wanting the 100th Anniversary issue now pictured as of August 16, 2013.
That's what I ordered from Deerso/full-filled by Amazon but I received 2012 book.
The (2012 & 2013) Ball Blue book is one hundred & twenty-eight pages (including index) of time tested guidance.
It includes several step-by-step illustrations in color and lists recommended lengths of storage.
This is an excellent reference book, weather just beginning, or been preserving food for years.
Starting with learning about canning, the following subjects covered are:
1. Just one step beyond cooking
2. Fruits, juices & tomatoes
3. Jams, jellies & fruit spreads
4. Chutneys, pickles & relishes
5. Meat, seafood's & vegetables
6. Low sugar & low salt recipes
7. Sweet & savory condiments, gourmet spreads & Salas
8. Spreads, meats, vegetables & prepared foods
9. Fruit leathers, jerky & rubs
10. From harvest to preserving
11. Answers to common food preservation questions
12. Food preservation terms
13. Recipes, food types, main ingredients
The Ball Blue Book is what my Mom used and trusted, she put up about everything one could think of from her garden.
I've followed that lead using the Blue Book for preserving over the years, and have continually been happy with the results.
One little disappointment ~ this book doesn't seem to be as well bound as it could have been.
Just getting started in home canning, I bought the book on it's reputation among other canners. It contains good "how to" info to help you understand canning and the processes involved and has several recipes for canning a variety of food items. It also covers both methods of canning - pressure canning and water bath canning and which is appropriate for what food items.
