USDA's GUIDE TO HOME CANNING (short version)
•This has been copied from the USDA Guide to Home canning. If possible, go to the Food and Safety webpage and download it for yourself. To the best of my knowledge, this has been copied accurately. Please read all you can on canning, then use your own sound judgement


A word about safety- Look in your phone book under Agriculture. There should be a number for your extension office. If not, call the Agriculture number and ask for the phone number for your Extension Office. Your extension office will have a person who is up to date on CANNING SAFETY. His/her advice can make a difference. These recipes are from the many women and men who visit the Canning Message Board. Unless indicated, they are not professionals in this field. Rather they are people who enjoy canning and have been canning for their families for years. I have no way of validating the correctness of the recipes. I leave it up to you to ensure your families saftey.
