Friends, I had such a good time participating in International Can-It-Forward Day last week! Many thanks to all of you who took the time to tune in to ask questions, leave comments, and otherwise engage with my demo (if you missed it, you can see the video here).

This week, I want to share The All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving. It features reasonably sized recipes across the food preservation spectrum. It digs into water bath canning, fermentation, pressure canning, freezing, dehydrating, curing, and smoking. Additionally, there is a liberal sprinkling of recipes designed to help you use up what you’ve put up. Oh, and did I mention all the gorgeous, full-color pictures? It’s truly a lovely book.

  • My favorite preservation method is water bath canning, but realistically these days, I’m doing more freezing than canning.

  • Since moving to our new house I’ve been exclusively freezing produce because I now have a glass top stove on which I’m not supposed to can. It’s been a real bummer, actually.

  • Lately,
    I’m pickling everything thing.. but not with vinegar.. only brine.. I’m so happy!
    I would love to learn fast picking

  • Any comments on some of the safety concerns out there about this book? I really like the recipes but have heard some Extensions have concerns, which makes me hesitant on some of the pressure canning and borderline low-acid waterbath canning recipes.

    1. Ball tends to be very cautious when it comes to safety, so I can’t imagine that they would publish unsafe recipes. But you have to use your own best judgment here.
