Thanks Dave, That looks interesting and packed with info. I plan to start preping a garden this fall for next year. I am kind of discouraged with the selection and quality of what we find in the grocery. I would like to reduce what we buy and grow and store more...JJ

It's been forever since Ive been on here but I seen this and had to throw my 2 cents in. pickyourown.org and simplycanning.com also have quite a few good recipes and go into complete detail on what to do. The ball canning book is always the best. I've checked on mostly all there recipes and there all the usda approved methods. Just a good hint for you a pressure canner is a must. Best ones I've ever used are the national pressure cooker no.7 I have 4 of them with turkey fryers and have probably jarred around a 1000 jars a year for the last 10 years. Ebay, Amazon, or garage sales if you have time for that are about the only place you can find them.
