    I can not, for the life of me, understand why so many people love this book. I got it to be more of a tool for cross-referencing than a cookbook, so it didn't bother me too much that the recipes are like back-of-the-box basic. It did bother me that she uses expensive technology and supplies (um, Amish? Really?). And it REALLY bugged me that in her jam/ jellies recipes she lists the amount of pectin by pouch or box with no actual amount or even a brand name to look up. I probably will use it occa I can not, for the life of me, understand why so many people love this book.

I probably will use it occasionally to compare with other, non-canning specific recipes when I'm uncertain how to modify them safely, but overall I am not impressed.

When we walk in the kitchen on a Saturday or a sunny Sunday and think about what sweets we can come up with for the coming week, we think of those early breakfast's before work or school, jam on a hot delicious bread, and if we keep digging in the various courses of the day, we can still think about a million recipes we can come up with. When the love for cooking grows within us, books like "The Amish Canning Cook" are long life friends that makes us company on those hours that we spend in the kitchen. From the author Georgia Varozza comes a friend, a companion and a work tool that is indispensable in the kitchen and to those that like to have home made goodies in the fridge. This book is a complete guide to canning sweets, preserves and other types of food like butters, vegetables, and meats. From a brief history of canning, the author helps you get started with the utensils, the different methods that canning involves, how to adapt your taste and recipes to this very art of simple and cheap living. It surely will help with the house budget. All the directions are very detailed, one point in favor for me because sometimes the first is not so perfect as it should be. If you're a starter with canning and had the idea that it was for professionals, loose it and use this book to outrun your fears and get into something that in the end will pleasure your taste and the love for achieving something that you thought was so out of reach. In the end you will be the loved queen of your household. This book is a way of going back to the simple life of having time for what really counts and is a must on your favorite cookbooks shelf. Can you imagine when you open your pantry and see the fabulous goodies in it ... I know you'll be proud and wanting more !

    If your mom wrote you a book on how to can (pressure and water bath), along with her favorite recipes (jams, soups, meats, veggies, fruits - everything) - this would be it! She explains the do's and don'ts swiftly and clearly without droning on for pages. Lots of helpful hints & EVERY page has a section for notes...brilliant.

    Easy to follow, covers most everything you need to get started canning. The instructions are very straight forward. The authors voice is authoritative and reassuring. I appreciated that for the first time canner no detail was left unexplained. I felt like I had my granny in the kitchen talking me through the process. I’ll be using this as a reference and resource book for years to come.

    This is a great instructional guide for beginner canners, but as someone who has been canning for a few years I also learned some new knowledge. The recipes are pretty basic, but I have other cookbooks that compensate. Very glad to have this on my shelf!

    I haven’t made anything from this but saved a few recipes. Doesn’t really have any new canning info that I didn’t already know but it’s probably fine for beginners so I gave it 3 stars.

    If you like to can, this is a great book! I found several recipes to try in here, and have canned many. The recipes are a great way to use up all your end of season garden produce.

The last cookbook I reviewed was a bit of a disaster. I read through it & it looked good on the surface. Unfortunately it only looked good on the surface. That is not true of this one. This book is very well-written, well put-together and it offers enough information that I believe the novice "canner" will have no need for any other resources. "The Amish Canning Cookbook" by Georgia Varozza is a great find for our family and I believe anyone else who cans or is considering starting to can! "PLAIN AND SIMPLE LIVING AT ITS HOMEMADE BEST" The above quote says it all, in my opinion. For Ms. Varozza, canning isn't just a hobby… it's a way of life. Her book teaches that for families who choose a simpler way of life of eating whole grains and healthier foods, canning is an important asset. It creates self-reliance; from planting a garden or visiting a farmers market, to canning the food, to prepare better tasting, healthier, natural food from God's bounty. After the brief introduction telling why she feels canning is an important part of making her home a better place for her family. This wonderful book includes everything you need to know (or could ever want to know) about canning! The chapters include a brief history of canning, how to get started, and step-by-step guides for water-bath and pressure canning. Then comes the huge assortment of recipes! Butters, jams, and jellies. Pickles and sauerkraut. Tomatoes. Fruit and pie filling (I didn't expect to find fruit and pie filling recipes, but by golly, she included them. Then comes vegetables, meat, poultry and fish recipes… along with soups, stews and other good things. PRACTICAL ASPECTS of the Book: I have noticed a lot of cookbooks lately that have very thin pages. Personally, my favorite cookbook pages are either plastic or in plastic sleeves but this is not always practical for a professionally published cookbook. This cookbook has very good, thick pages. These pages will not be easily ruined by cooking spills and they will not curl up in the heat of the kitchen. Also there is space on every single page for your personal notes. This is a tremendous asset as well because every cook or canner will have little things about recipes that they change, adding or subtracting. And it is always easier to be able to look at the recipe and see your notes right there with it. (This is one of the instances where plastic pages would be impractical.) The binding is perfect for a cookbook as well. Too many people put a regular spine binding on cookbooks but this book is spiral bound and that makes it so easy to open the book, lay it flat and see your recipe while you're using it. It's great! All together, a wonderful book. Very well-done. A very smart purchase for any canner. Also it would make a great gift for anyone of your friends or in your family who can. Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Harvest House Publishers in exchange for a free review. (If I had not though, I definitely would have bought it. It's a great book! And I plan to search out her other cookbook as well.) I give this book 5 stars and I would recommend it to everyone!

About the Author: Georgia Varozza, author of The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook (nearly 50,000 copies sold), is a certified master food preserver. She teaches people how to prepare and preserve healthy foods; live simply with integrity, and get the most from what they have. She works in publishing and lives in a small Oregon community. Georgia loves being with her kids and grandkids and enjoys cooking, spinning, and knitting. Visit Georgia at www.georgiaplainandsimple.blogspot.com. My Review: The Amish have a knack for taking plain and simple living and making it very attractive to an Englisher. Georgia Varozza's latest book The Amish Canning Cookbook is just that. It takes canning something as plain and simple that seems an arduous task and gives it to you straight forward and easy to understand. The author has politely gone through and chosen several items to inform us of and explain in relation to the subject and the ways of the Amish in connection to it. Ms. Varozza gives you a brief history on canning. As every good canner will tell you, you will need a list of things to get you started, this list is included in the book. The author takes into consideration that you just may be new to all of this. For example, did you know that there are two different methods of canning, one being the water bath canning method and the other being the pressure canner method? There are many aspects to canning that can be learned and used for years and generations to come. Recipes are included, which is a great help to those of us just starting out. You will not only learn to can vegetables or learn to make jams and jellies but you will also learn how to can different types of meats. The ideas and possibilities are endless. And what was also helpful; that was included in the book, was a whole chapter dedicated to the what went wrong crowd, if your attempt at this didn't go quite as expected. The author has thought of everything you could possibly need and then some in the hopes of being and help to you and your family. **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge from Harvest House Publishers for my honest review.

    As you can see by the pictures (see my blog address at bottom) 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.

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!! - See more at: http://citygirlmovestothecountry-tany...

    The Amish Canning Cookbook by Georgia Varozza is a very detailed look at canning. It begins with a short a bullet point intro How to Fit Canning into Your Busy Life and then a short history of canning.

It also has techniques and recipes for canning butters, jams and jellies, vegetables, meats, soups and stews, and various other canning projects.

If you are a complete beginner, this book will explain everything you need from preparation through the canning process. If you are an experienced canner, this book will also be helpful. I have canned for quite a few years, but I found information I didn’t know, products I didn’t know about, and recipes I had never thought of canning. I make pretty good pickles, but I just may have to try her Sweet Gherkins this summer, and I definitely want to try the Pickled Hot Peppers. There is something for everyone in this book, but I was especially impressed with her detailed instructions.

    I loved this canning book. It's not a typical Amish style canning book with 'rebel' type canning recipes ;-), however I liked the in depth descriptions of the different types of canning, the how tos, the don'ts, and quite abit of safety tips. The recipes are pretty much typical recipes that you'll find in any general canning book. This book would find a loving home on my canning shelves! I loved this canning book.

    This is a terrific book on canning for both water bath and pressure methods. I was looking for some good recipes for pressure canning soups and meats, and this book definitely fit the bill. I originally checked it out from the library, but the book was so good, that I purchased it for my home library. If you are looking for some tasty ways to preserve your harvest or good deal from the grocery store, this is the book for you.

    This book got me through my first canning batch—pressure canning tomato sauce. I felt confident and the one jar that failed to seal, I understood why. This will stay on my shelf ready for next canning season. Update: Pressure canned a batch of beef stock from this book. All a success! This book is definitely becoming a great resource.
