The Grannys Favorite Canning and Preserving Cookbook shows you how to make jellies, butters, conserves, jams, marmalades, sauces, syrups, dried fruits and leathers, preserves, condiments, juices, vinegars, and herb recipes. I have been asked to put this book together as a helping tool for all the people I helped to preserve fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Low sugar preserving is not new. I have been doing it for almost forty years. I preserve with low sugar and without preservatives so my husband, who is diabetic, may enjoy and digest the treats to his satisfaction. Its a wonderful gift for you to share with your family. Homemade preserves offer pleasing, inexpensive, and wholesome means of satisfying the universal hunger for something sweet at meal time. Home-canned fruits, in good supply, is a safeguard to family health by supplying vitamins and minerals necessary to our physical well-being and provides a tasty way that helps with our food budget.
