To celebrate this renewal, Canadian Living has combed through more than 35 years of its classic canning recipes to find the best jams, pickles and preserves to share in The Complete Canadian Living Preserving Book.

Whether you're a novice or an expert at the art of preserving, this book has something to offer you. An in-depth introduction covers the most up-to-date canning techniques and offers a visual guide to the equipment you'll need. Helpful advice on selecting and preparing fruits and vegetables is sprinkled throughout to help you make the best of the harvest.

There's even a handful of recipes that show off your preserves in delicious ways.

A great book for those new to preserving, this book walks you through the process step by step and explains all of the equipment you will need. It has some recipes you'd expect, but it also has some that are quite unique. I'm looking forward to trying the peach melba jam recipe!
