So, I'm thinking of canning a few things this year. I have a canning book from the late 1980s, a Ball book. I'm assuming I can still use this as a guide? I don't think things could have changed in all the years that people have been canning but thought I'd ask. I've only ever canned pickled beets and that was years ago. I was planning to do much more when I lived in the country down south but then we moved because of my ex's new job.
I will have to buy a some jars and tongs for lifting the jars out of the hot water. I'm assuming I can use my big stock pot and don't need a special one. I need to read the book, which we found when cleaning out the garage last month.
