Great book for beginners. This book helps you master simple ways to preserve food by canning and freezing.

I was lucky enough to take a class with Jackie in her home; she's been my neighbor for many years. I appreciate how this book is laid out in lists. I can see how that will make it easier to do this. Can't wait to get started!

This is an excellent reference! Up until this book, the best so far has been my friend Marissa McCellan's "Food in Jars". But this book is everything you need if you intend to start preserving.
This was not what I was looking for. Too much information on freezing things, and WAY to much information on how to preserve pickles.

Probably a great resource for a beginner, but not helpful or interesting for an old hat like me.

An excellent "go to" resource. I've tried numerous recipes and they all worked out great.
