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

This book is more focused on water bath canning, although it also gives instructions for low acid (pressure cooker) canning. My first recipes were making jellies from juices I bought at the store, something that you usually can't go wrong with.
If you are wondering if canning is for you, I suggest that you buy this book even before investing in canning equipment. It will give you a solid basis of knowledge that will help you decide if canning is for you, and what kinds of equipment you want to buy.
I love the troubleshooter section, especially if I can't find the answer anywhere else. I suggest this book to any and all who are interested in canning and home storage.
Great instruction for beginning canners concerning equipment and general instructions on times and processes.
Just a great overall go-to book when you are looking to can nearly anything (it has a section on meat too if you are into that). I find a lot of recipes online, but I have to admit I ALWAYS double check quantities and general measurements with this recipe book before I experiment with a new recipe to make sure it's in the ballpark. I think this as a basis book that most preserving homes should have on-hand.
