Experimenting with Amazon

I signed up for Amazon.ca associates, selling books through links on my blog a year ago.  Then promptly forgot to ever link to any.  D’oh!

I got my tax receipt this week, and sadly, all of those zeroes had no numbers in front of them.  It was not millions, it was just zero.  lol

So today I am trying to link to a few books that I feel are relevant, and really belong in every well prepared kitchen.  These are books I own, or wish I owned.  I’ll put a little review with the ones I own.  If there’ no review, it would be a great birthday gift….

Bernardin Complete Book of Home Preserving: 400 Delicious and Creative Recipes for Today I have several incarnations of this book, they publish a new one every few years.  It contains the basic instructions for BWB and pressure canning, as well as both simple and more elaborate recipes for jams, chutneys, and pickles.

Put ’em Up!: A Comprehensive Home Preserving Guide for the Creative Cook, from Drying and Freezing to Canning and PicklingPut’ em up!  This book also contains drying and freezing instructions.  Yummy recipes and almost everything you need to know to preserve your garden.

<a href="All American 921 21-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner“>A pressure canner, Gods’ gift to those who wish to become more self reliant about their food.  This is the one I have and it’s great.  I can do up to a dozen 500ml jars at a time.

More links when I see how this works!  And after I go through my vast collection of cookbooks.
