Canning And Freezing

There are several websites about canning and freezing vegetables as well as a variety of books available.  I have found Pick Your to be easy to use and very informative.  They provide a large assortment of downloadable pdf files with step by step instructions for canning, freezing, pickling, and making jams and jellies to name a few.  For your convenience we have provided links to just a few of those pdf files here.  If there is a link mentioned in one of these pdf files that you are interested in and it does not function, you will be able to get to it from  You should visit for many other canning & freezing directions and recipes.  They have a great website.  If you prefer books, visit our Cookbooks And Other Cool Stuff page.
