The Ball books are great--for a website, try this: National Center for Home Food Preservation

The University of Georgia site linked above is the official USDA food preservation site.

Kerr has a good book too. There's also an older little book," Summer in a Jar" by Andrea Chesman, she has all sorts of recipes for smaller amounts, a few pints, a quart or so.

The basic bible for preserving food is the current copy of Ball Blue Book Guide To Preserving (about $6). On the Internet its the "National Center for Home Food Preservation", both mentioned by others. The NCHFP is connected with the Univ. of Georgia and the USDA and considered 'the' authority on the subject.

The NCHFP has a great recipe book (about $18) and offers an online free course which I recommend everyone take. It will test your knowledge of preserving foods correctly.
