    Out of date. Significant changes made in 2009, June 28, 2010

    This review is from: Complete Guide to Home Canning and Preserving (Paperback)

    This USDA publication has been updated in 2009 and the one for sale was published 1994. After the fact, I received UDSA, NIFA, Agriculture Information Bulletin No. 539 listing significant changes in every one of the seven sections pertaining to food safety &/or quality. This rendered the entire book unfit to use as a researched based reference. Knowing that the version I was purchasing was the 1994 version, and I did not realize the differences until after the book arrived, I ended up throwing out the book because I did not feel it was safe to even sell it at a yard sale. I have since acquired the 2009 version of the same book through my local County Extension Service Office.

    This book was just what I was looking for. Not only does it have great recipes, but also more detailed information for first time canners than any of the other canning books!

    By the Publishing Date (2008), I assumed that this was a newer edition. I wasn’t expecting a reprint of the 1994 USDA Bulletin #539 – 14 years older than the Publishing Date. This should be made clear in the book’s information.

    My favourite are pickled garlic and yellow vegetable (i’m not sure how it’s called- maybe turnip)

  • kgen says:

    I just got back from my tour in England, and I love millions sweets, but I was wondering how many there were in a packet. Anyone who empties one out, counts them all up and puts the answer on will get 10 points!!!

    I have got a packeet here with me, and I had one of my servants count them up for me, so the person with the closest one will win!!!

  • Weird World News says:

    I enjoy making various types of Pickles, and would like an authentic recipe for Chinese Preserved Vegetables, as most of my Chinese recipe books normally describe these as readily available from Chinese Supermarkets. As I live nowhere near a Chinese Supermarket, and in any case grow my own vegetables I would like to preserve some in the Chinese way, as I love Chinese food
    Thanks Diana.
    The vegetables I wish to pickle this way are largely cucumber, runner beans and oriental greens – pak-choi and Mizuma etc. I also have carrots and Potatos (but I don’t think the latter will pickle very well!) some chili peppers and overgrown salad onions.

  • Ben P says:

    (97:1-5) “Verily! We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of Al-Qadr.
    And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr is?
    The night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months
    Therein descend the angels and the Ruh (Gabriel) by Allah’s Permission with all Decrees,
    Peace! until the appearance of dawn”

    1. Lailat al-Qadr
    Aisha related that the Prophet said: Look for Lailat al-Qadr on an odd-numbered night during the last ten nights of Ramadan (Bukhari).
    Anas ibn Malik related that Rasulullah said: When Lailat al-Qadr comes Gabriel descends with a company of angels who ask for blessings on everyone who is remembering Allah, whether they are sitting or standing (Baihaqi).

    (2:183-84 >”O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious).
    (Fasting) for a fixed number of days, but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number (should be made up) from other days. And as for those who can fast with difficulty, (i.e. an old man, etc.), they have (a choice either to fast or) to feed a poor person (for every day). But whoever does good of his own accord, it is better for him. And that you fast, it is better for you if only you know.”

    “(2:185. The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan, i.e., is present at his home), he must observe Sawm (fasting) that month, and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number ?of days which one did not observe Sawm (fasting) must be made up? from other days. Allah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you. (He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allah ?i.e., to say Takbir (Allahu Akbar: Allah is the Most Great)? for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him.) ”

    2. Ibn ‘Abbas narrates “that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and salute him with proper salutation) was the most generous person, and he would be at his most generous in Ramadan because Jibril would come to him every night and he would rehearse the Qur’an with him.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Eng. trans. 6/486)
    This hadith contains recommendation of the following for us to follow:
    •Studying the Qur’an in Ramadan;
    •coming together for this purpose;
    •checking (one’s memory/knowledge of) the Qur’an with someone who has preserved it better;
    •increasing recitation of the Qur’an in Ramadan;
    •that the night time is the best time to recite, when other preoccupations decrease and it is easier to concentrate, as in Surah al-Muzzammil 73:6. > Verily, rising (Nashi’ah) at night is better for understanding and more suitable for speech (recitation).

    3. The most twisted, ridiculous, shallow ideas, innovations and superstitions are propagated amongst Muslims when they are away from the Quran, because any little knowledge of the Quran would be enough to dispel them.
    Hence, O slave of Allah, leave aside secondary books and concentrate on studying the Blessed Book of Allah in this Blessed Month (use a good translation/commentary if needed), for it is the source of all Knowledge in other books, and keep away from wasting time, especially in futile discussions and arguments which lead nowhere, for that is a sure sign of being misguided, as the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and salute him with proper salutation) said, “Whenever a people went astray after they had been on guidance, they were given to argumentation (jadl).” (Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah – Sahih al-Jami’ al-Saghir, no. 5633)

    4. Finally, remember that the Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and salute him with proper salutation) will complain to Allah on the Day of Judgment that his people neglected the Qur’an (Surah al-Furqan 25:30).

    Neglect of the Qur’an is of different levels:
    •not reciting or listening to it;
    •not studying and understanding it;
    •not conveying its message;
    •not judging by it in personal and communal matters, at all levels of society;
    not believing in it.

    5. Behavior while fasting
    Abu Huraira related that the Prophet said: If a person does not avoid false talk and false conduct during Siyam, then Allah does not care if he abstains from food and drink (Bukhari, Muslim).

    Q. Plz post as many as possible lessons to be learned and implimented in oue daily lives from Ramadan and Fasting??

  • Windblo says:

    My FIL remembers a pickled vegetable mix from his youth (50’s & 60’s) that he thinks was called California Gift. It contained celery, broccoli, cauliflower and other veggies in a spicy brine. He believes they were made using the “leftovers” from other products made by the company. Has anyone heard of this product, and can you tell me who made it and if it’s still available anywhere?
