The Ball Blue Book of Canning is a good start and should be in every home library. Garage/estate sales and second hand stores for the best prices. You might want to check out the Tattler reusable lids on the web.
Are there any Mormon missions in the UK? Here in the states, you can buy bulk food and I believe they still do lending of canning equipment, and you do bulk canning at their facility.Hi
I was wondering if any one knew of where in the Uk you can get items for canning?
Obviously these will need to also be a reasonable price.
Any books you could recommended for a novice that wants to get started would also be helpful.
Most of the LDS canneries are no longer allowing you to can your own foods. They are only selling pre-canned items. New laws and all.Are there any Mormon missions in the UK?

Now that's just what I've heard and read, but I've heard and read it a lot, so I think it's probably accurate, but I havent personally gone to the local Church which is actually quite large here in SoCal to verify it.
Having to pay those prices for the jars is horrible, I hope you find a better alternative soon. That's just crazy!
