Treasure trove of information, but...  Mar 26, 2008
I liked the depth and breadth of information that is offered in this book, but it could have used some more editing. The author refers to herself in the third person throughout the book, even when recalling fond childhood memories. It comes off as forced-folksy and incredibly pretentious. It made the book very difficult to read. I found myself reading snippets of the more ridiculous passages out loud to my husband. The recipes are sometimes marked off by clear headers, and sometimes not. For example there is a challah bread recipe mixed in with a jam recipe. The technical information is mixed in with other jam recipes, making finding specific info difficult. Her publishers may have let this author have too much of a free hand in writing this cookbook. Perhaps later editions will improve. Take this book out of the library, but I don't recommend its purchase.
Needs major editing  Aug 29, 2007
The book is not organized very well - sections seem to be thrown in where they don't belong (there is an Old Timers and Acid and Pectin section right in the middle of the Mangoes, Apricots, Nectarines, and Peaches section). When using the index to find things they are on the wrong page(s) in looking up Peach Butter the index lists 108, 217, 242 and 227; only 242 makes a reference to peach butter. Some recipes are very detailed others make you guess.
Another thing that bugs me about the book is that it's written in the 3rd person. She wrote the book but every other paragraph starts off with something like: Jamlady appreciates the many people, the Jamlady and the USDA recommend, Jamlady cautions buyers, Jamlady is curious....
If you are looking for a solid informative canning book try Blue Ribbon Preserves by Linda Amendt instead.
Jamlady Cookbook review  Aug 10, 2006
I have taken professional courses on jam making in the past 3 years. I am amazed with how thorough the jamlady cookbook is. I was especially pleased with the knowledge on the following topics: the french plunge method, and how to make homemade apple pectin.

The second point I will comment on is her canning methods. She is one of the only authors I have read who truly understands the chemistry of canning and explains it so well!
This Jamlady Cooks   Jul 26, 2006
I have just discovered cooking as my new hobby. I wanted to try to make my own jam - preserves. The Jamlady Cookbook was just what I needed to get me started. Every receipe I tried came out exactly as it should. A great book for the novice jam maker.
Home Canner's Review  Jul 25, 2006
As an amateur home-canner, I found the book to be very helpful in regard to the theory of why jams work or why they fail. The technical info is great. From a recipe stand-point, I was a little disappointed. Most of the recipe's are something that the basic amateur home-canner will never use. If you want a simple recipe for blackberry jam, you will not find it. With some adjustment from other recipe's, you can make it work. Overall, I am glad I have the book, but it is not a "basic" jam-book.
