5 THE BIBLE
August 14, 2014
By Robert M., NJ
Great book, just needed another one. I recommend it to everybody who asks, UNFORTUNATELY, sometimes I need a new one. I hope I just lost mine but I guess it COULD have "walked", must have been by accident of course.

5 Blue Book by Ball is the Best.
August 14, 2014
By Michael, CA
For over 50 years that I can remember, when it came to preserving or canning "BALL" jars and pectin products were a household name to go to. This book is excellently written and laid out for the beginner to the advanced. I would have to say if you are thinking of canning, making jellies, and jams or preserving the extra items from your garden, this is the book to get. I am looking forward to trying the numerous recipes in the book with my personal twist. The section on dehydrating is great also, now I am interested in trying my hand at that too. Great book, you won’t regret the purchase. Happy canning.

5 Best Book
August 5, 2014
By Sheri, TN
I still have my great grandmother's Ball Canning Book. I try to buy them every several years to make sure I "keep up to date" on everything. One suggestion - I do ALL my canning in a pressure canner. I wish you'd put pressure canner times as well as water-bath canning times for those of us who are lazy and prefer to be told. This, however, is the Only Book to Have. All others are second best!

5 Ball Canning Guide
July 26, 2014
By Michelle, CA
Great resource book for home canning! Have had book for 25 years and got updated version this year. Must have if you plan to home preserve. Some great recipes too, trying bread and butter pickles for first time this year although have not tasted yet as they have to "cure" but certain they will be delicious!

July 25, 2014
By Andrea, VT
The only thing that disappointed me was that the book was "forced" into the box and the corners were bent and crumpled. It still is the same book, the info is great, but I hope to give my items that "used and abused" look on my own terms.

5 The Blue Book Guide to Preserving
July 21, 2014
By Patricia, MN
I like this book so much that I bought 4 of them. One for my daughter, one for my daughter-in-law, one for my niece and one for myself. I had one from the 1990's, and it got old and worn and thought I would up date with a new one.

5 Delicious ideas
July 2, 2014
By Patricia, NJ
I really needed to get this book. As a little girl I helped my mother and grandmother "can" but I have never attempted to go it alone. I started with strawberry jam. I am looking forward to doing blueberries and eventually tomatoes as the growing season progresses. The recipes are clear and concise, easy to follow and lots of helpful hints. It brings back many happy memories.
