My Favorite Canning Books

Here is a list of the books I use the most during canning season!  I hope you'll find some favorites here as well.

Jams and Preserves

I also use old cookbooks that I have collected from estate sales and the used book sales from our local library. If you can find cookbooks from before 1950, you have found treasures indeed! My favorites are the cookbooks from the 1930s and 1940s.

I hope these books will inspire you to move beyond green beans and tomatoes this canning season!

  1. Thank you! It's only my third year to can, but I never even imagined (nor would know where to start) beyond the Ball Blue Book.
