The following are some of the websites and books that I frequently visit, follow and use in my canning and cooking exploits.

Canning Resources


Here are a few of my favorite things - well at least my favorite canning books.


Mrs. Wheelbarrow's Practical Pantry: Recipes and Techniques for Year-Round Preserving -


Food preserving expert Cathy Barrows presentat a beautiful collectionof essential preserving techniques. The newest addition to my collection of canning books.



The first book that every canner should get is the Ball Blue Book. This is the good old standby that our mothers, aunts and grandmothers used for many generations. A friend and neighbor has several editions from 1931, 1963, 1972, and 1977.


Great for smaller batches of canning. Melissa also has a great blog to follow, Food in Jars.


This is where I head for great pickle ideas.
