There were some really good recipts, but I felt that it was short on canning meat and nothing at all on steam canning
This ball book was not what I was expecting it doesn't give you the recipes like the old ball book gives you .The old one tells you the time to pressure can things plus the index has all kinds of fruit,vegatables,and things to look up when your canning.I'm very disappointed !
