The Preservation Society Home Preserves book is fantastic! It is great for the beginner and the seasoned professional canner. All of the recipes are very easy to understand and I love that the author includes various tips and variations along the way. The foodie photography in this book is mouth-watering and entices you to try your hand at making the recipe.
