I love this book! It gives one courage to face down that hissing, quaking, jiggling canner that scares the livin' daylights out of anyone who was not born on a farm! With an emphasis on small batches, the recipes are more affordable and faster with less room for failure. All you need is a water bath canner -- no pressure canning recipes herein. Personally, I'm going to try the Kimchi and then the Peach Lavender Jam. YUM!
