USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning, 2009 revision

Adobe Reader 10 (or a higher version) is needed for proper viewing and printing of the USDA canning guide files.  You can download the free Adobe Reader from http://get.adobe.com/reader/ .  We still recommend selecting 'print preview' before printing a guide to make sure that it will print properly on your computer system.  All 8 links below make up the electronic version of the USDA canning guide; the book was split into the 8 files for easier downloading. 

The December 2009 Complete Guide to Home Canning is also being sold in print form by Purdue Extension: The Education Store.  All inquiries about purchases will be handled by them.  The online store is located at https://mdc.itap.purdue.edu/item.asp?item_number=AIG-539
