Can It!, from the editors of Hobby Farm Homes, gives readers a contemporary perspective on this favorite traditional kitchen art. As the ?eat local” movement sweeps the country, so too does the popularity of canning and preserving the harvest from our own gardens and hobby farms. Filled with nearly 200 full-color photograph and illustrations, Can It! is a detailed beginner’s guide that takes the reader step by step through the process of canning fruits and vegetables.
