 Ball Blue Book of Preserving - Ball Corporation


I was too busy this weekend to read much because older son and I went Blackberry and Raspberry Picking and I made Blackberry Jam, triple berry clafoutis (with some leftover blueberries from the CSA share) and blackberry sour cream coffee cake.  Since I want to start including books, the classic Ball Blue Book of canning is where I started learning how to make Jam.
