It's also really important to know that these recipes have not been tested for safety. This is not a pressure canning "bible." I wouldn't serve canned food from this book for this reason. If you need safe pressure canning recipes that have been extensively tested, you can download the USDA Pressure Canning Guide for free. That is the actual pressure canning bible. In the end, this book failed on every level. The pressure canning is not reliably safe and I'm not risking my family's health. The stand alone recipes without canning also seem to be untested and all of the ones we tried needed adjustments. Don't waste your money or take risks with this book.
I have a large collection of cookbooks and several canning books, but most don't cover PC very well. They usually mostly focus on water canning jams and sauces. So I was hopeful when I saw this book and I haven't been disappointed. Many of the recipes in here are things I make for meals on a regular basis...such French Onion Soup or Beef Stroganoff, as well as many other recipes that sound great. These are 'real food' recipes, not fluffy meals that call for ingredients you've never heard of.
Plus, the instructions and details about PC are very good. So anyone who has never tried PC can feel confident that this book will get them rolling. I even read some instructions included in the book that I'd never seen in other canning books, but which I'd only learned over time through membership in canning groups...such as not to keep the rings on your jars when storing them, or not to stack the jars...something I was doing my first year until I learned that not good to do (because you might not notice if a seal has broken).
This book has me excited about Pressure Canning again, since I'd lost interest due to having a hard time finding good recipes I actually wanted to make. Time to restock my jars and lids.

When I know that some recipes are unsafe, I can trust ANY of them, rendering this book useless.
The author has been kicked out of a number of safe canning groups online because of her unsafe practices, and is reputed to not respond to customer enquiries.
There are hundreds of books on canning, but they mostly focus on water bath canning and lets be honest, how many jars of strawberry jams, peaches in syrup or apple pie filling can you make and consume without the worry of diabetes, weight gain or overload on sugar to keep any dentist in business!!
This particular book on pressure canning is what I have been yearning for and I’ve finally found it. A book that allows me to truly preserve food for my family that we want to eat and in my circumstance all from a few organic farmers I buy from regularly. It’s truly a pleasure!!
I love this book, as do others and I hope you will consider it. I can something every week and my nose has been in this book since it arrived and the recipes appear to work for me (thus far!). Good luck. I hope you give it a try and like it as much as I do.
