I've got the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving but I know others that have a much more extensive library of books who can offer advice.

My favourite book for pickles and chutneys though is 'Digby Law's Pickle & Chutney Cookbook' I just LOVE this book and have made many, many things out of it.

I have found a page on the web with preserving recipes so I may wait to purchase another ... es/215.php and I am going to try the chocolate raspberry icecream topping recipe I think it should be low in calories when added to icecream LOL

I have several preserving books. Just love to collect them. Of course once you read them you find that many of the recipes are either the same or much the same but i don't mind that at all. Also gives one lots of ideas. :D

As they are all packed away at the moment I can't be sure of all their titles although I do know I have the Ball books, the complete Ball Book of peserving has a little more information in it and quite a few more recipes.
I also have preserving the harvest, the joys of preserving, blue ribbon preserves, and seveal others.

As you have discovered there are also quite a few internet sites with canning/preserving recipes on them also.
