From the experts, the new bible in home preserving.

Ball Home Canning Products are the gold standard in home preserving supplies, the trademark jars on display in stores every summer from coast to coast. Now the experts at Ball have written a book destined to become the "bible" of home preserving.

As nutrition and food quality has become more important, home canning and preserving has increased in popularity for the benefits it offers:

  • Cooks gain control of the ingredients, including organic fruits and vegetables
  • Preserving foods at their freshest point locks in nutrition
  • The final product is free of chemical additives and preservatives
  • Store-bought brands cannot match the wonderful flavor of homemade
  • Only a few hours are needed to put up a batch of jam or relish
  • Home preserves make a great personal gift any time of year

These 400 innovative and enticing recipes include everything from salsas and savory sauces to pickling, chutneys, relishes and of course, jams, jellies, and fruit spreads, such as:

  • Mango-Raspberry Jam, Damson Plum Jam
  • Crab Apple Jelly, Green Pepper Jelly
  • Spiced Red Cabbage, Pickled Asparagus
  • Roasted Red Pepper Spread, Tomatillo Salsa
  • Brandied Apple Rings, Apricot-Date Chutney

The book includes comprehensive directions on safe canning and preserving methods plus lists of required equipment and utensils. Specific instructions for first-timers and handy tips for the experienced make theBall Complete Book of Home Preserving a valuable addition to any kitchen library.
