 My Reflections:

As you can see by the pictures I absolutely love my new Amish Canning cookbook!
As soon as I received this book I read it front to back, devouring the abundance of information contained within its spiral bound pages.

I really didn't know there were so many "rules" to canning. In the past I have canned with my good friend and she was, to me the guru of canning. Not knowing the rules I just followed along. Our efforts always turned out beautiful delicious preserves, but I had no knowledge of what not to do.

Now that I have moved my dear canning buddy can not guide me in my efforts.
So as you can imagine I was thrilled to review this book, and even happier that it was easy to read, well organized and included everything I needed to know regarding canning.
With this book novice and seasoned cooks alike can prepare home canned products, with ease and safety, within their own homes.

I would definitely recommend this book!
This is one book that I will have for many years, and I am sure my family and I will delight in the abundance of our garden well into the winter months!

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my review, from Harvest House Publishers.
Thank you Harvest House!!
