I am new to canning and started with Pressure Cook Canning. Her book was more helpful then the Ball Canning book to understand key tips on step by step how to can with a pressure cook canner and also a water bath canner. I didn’t realize at first I needed both types of canner’s I thought I could use my pressure canner for both, it turns out that this is not true in my case. I have also learned what not to can and is not safe like noodles and the ideaI water ratio’s for soup and food in a jar etc. I have also found her recipes to be good tasting and easy overall to follow. However, I was glad that I bought the Ball Canning Guide for Canning. They have a new one out frequently enough to stay up to date. I found their info and pictures helpful and between her book and the Ball guide I felt confident to use my pressure canner. However, I also read the manual on the pressure canner and this was essential as in Georgia’s guide she mentioned some things that may be okay with some pressure canner’s such as moving them off of the burner to cool, but my canner guide said absolutely not, until the whole process was over and the pot was completely cool. Great book overall, no pictures in it which would be helpful, but overall she does a great job and it is a book worth getting for the new canner.
