GIVEAWAY!!! Ball Complete Book of HOME PRESERVING

I thought it was time to have a fun giveaway.  Since I have gotten so much enjoyment from all the canning and preserving I've been doing, I wanted you to have some fun too.

So, I'm giving away this wonderful book full of 400 wonderful recipes to make everything from jams, pickles, salsa, sauces and much much more.

If you have never canned or preserved anything, this is the book for you as it will take you step by step. 

If you have been canning and preserving for years, this is still  book you will love as it will give you so many great ideas on how to step up the flavors way beyond the normal simple canning/preserving recipes.

There are no hoops you need to jump through.  No long stories to tell or anything to like.  Just leave your name and a way for me to reach you.  I'll pick a winner by random drawing next Friday. 

I would love to hear your favorite recipe you love to can or preserve and would be thrilled if you shared.  But, if you don't want to take the time to leave it, that is fine, you can still win :)

Good Luck!

Hi there! I have just started canning last summer. I recently made a batch of Rhubarb Habanero Jelly.
Any recipe for rhubarb jelly, then I finely chopped 4 habaneros for 6 {8 oz} jars of jelly. Perfectly sweet and spicy. We ate most of it on wheat thins with cream cheese. :)
Thanks for the chance!

What a beautiful book. For years I was afraid of canning, then when we had an overload of tomatoes a couple years ago I decided to make and can my own salsa. Now I am hooked! Love canning, but I sure have a lot to learn.

I would Dearly Love to Have a Book Like this! I have bought a Pressure Canner to start off with because it says you can use it for both methods of Caning. I've gotten other Supplies too and I look for sales and such on my purchases of jars and bottles, which I want to collect before I need them for any "Big" batches of stuff that I'm growing outside to harvest! I have Never canned before; so this will be my Start! Tomatoes are eaten Daly here, so I need to snatch some away from the kids to can. Robin - Krazkat53 @ msn.com
