  Excellent resource

This is an excellent all-around book for home preserving: root cellaring, canning, freezing and dehydrating. Plenty of recipes and I like how the author rated the final product. For instance, freezing strawberries yields a better end product than canning them. It helps the beginner determine the best way to preserve each fruit or vegetable.
 
  Teriffic book for a beginner!

I used this book when i was just starting to learn how to can, and it was a savior. Provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to can, freezer, and dry store. Also contains great basic receipes to get you started.
 
  A Practical and Simple Guidebook for Preserving Food

I used to feel intimidated about preserving fresh vegetables. I thought all sorts of expensive equipment and a vast knowledge of preserving were needed in order to successfully preserve food. Then I purchased a copy of The Busy Person's Guide to Preserving Food and was delighted to find that I could almost effortlessly preserve many of the fresh vegetables I grew and still have good results with the finished product. Now, I look forward to a healthy crop of green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, and tomatoes and no longer wonder what I'll do with all of the produce.
 
  Excellent resource even for beginners

The Busy Person's Guide to Preserving Food: Easy Step-by-Step Instructions for Freezing, Drying and Canning is an excellent resource if you need help learning how to preserve food. It gives the preferred preservation method for all different types of fruits and vegetables then also gives alternate methods for each as well. You can definitely preserve produce you buy locally as well as produce you grow using the methods in this book even if you have never done so before.
 
  Great Book

This is an easy book to follow. I've never canned before and this book made it easy. The results were good also.
