There's no way this can simply be a library book for me; the tips and ideas are something I am going to want handy/nearby so I am looking for a used copy!

This is definitely a resource book that I will need to purchase when I am harvesting my garden and I begin canning pickles, tomato sauce, etc...!

Not that I will ever be DONE with this book, it was a very good reference guide for myself the novice!

A practical and valuable book, especially when money's tight - and beyond costing less, it can be healthier to prepare and then preserve your own food, and fun too.
