This is a question I hear a lot ...

Stocking Up by Carol Hupping

These 3 books cover just about everything I've ever encounter when it comes to preserving/canning food.

  1. There are a few canning books that I really like. My favorites are the two books by Marisa McClellan. I have followed he blog for several years before she became a published cookbook author. The first is "Food in Jars" which is also the name of her blog. The second is "Preserving by the Pint." I like that both these books deal with small batch canning which is great when you have a small amount to preserve or very limited time or space.

    Another highly recommended book is "Homemade Living: Canning & Preserving with Ashley English". It's on my list to buy. She has a series of books and each deals with a different subject. One is about keeping bees, another about keeping chickens and the other is on homemade dairy I have another book that I really love but I have to look for it because I don't remember the title off my head and I'm on the phone talking my sister through canning her first batch of tomato jam.

    1. Kim, I have Ashley English's book on homemade dairy, I'll have to check out the one of canning and preserving. Thanks for sharing!

  2. My favorite, especially for sweet things is She emphasizes low sugar & commercial pectin free. (For some things, I think something like Pomona's Pectin would work wonderfully.)

    Her other book. I haven't made anything out of that yet.

  3. I've made a few recipes from The Joy Of Pickling.. A delicious corn relish and cherry relish also.
