I was walking through one of our local stores a couple of days ago and I saw a new edition of the "Ball Blue Book of Canning". I didn't pick up a copy but I probably will. I also saw a new brand of powdered pectin (Mrs. Weges) that I am going to try. I bought a full carton as I am totally out at the present.

I love the Ball Blue Book and the Kerr Canning Guide..... But for me it is the older the better. I have them from the 50's
60's and 70's. The old ones are the ones My Mom used and they are the ones I learned from. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
