The Better Homes and Gardens book Can It! is by FAR my FAVORITE canning book that I have!
I suggest, no, I demand you go and get yourself a copy….right now. You can obviously get them new, but I was lucky enough to pick up my copy at a second hand book store for $11. I can’t imagine that anyone wanted to get rid of the book in the first place. If you can or are getting into canning, you need this book!
Good, now that you have your copy, flip through it and you will find more than 100 recipes. It has recipes and variations that I think everyone in the world will like. I also appreciate that every recipe has a picture of what it looks like and gives tips on how it can be served.
To give you an idea of the book, the chapters are titled: Berries & Cherries, Totally Tomatoes, Scent of Citrus, Happy Couples, From Down Deep, Tropical Treasures, First Blush, Row Crops, Apples & Pears, From the Herb Garden, From the Vine, and Meant for Giving.
Some of my favorite recipes that I have made this year are (later I will be detailing my experience with the recipes so check back for more blog posts or sign up for your email updates):
Bourbon Peach Jam
Spiced Peaches (you can see from the photo below I have used this recipe a bunch) and
Butter Spiced Nectarines
