I'd like to do some home canning but am afraid of botulism and other kinds of food poisoning. What should I do?

Doctor's response:

We would recommend that you get the USDA (the U.S. Department of Agriculture) Complete Guide to Home Canning.

The USDA is considered expert on approved recipes for safely canning foods at home. Their spiral-bound guide provides the information you need to can numerous types of foods, as well as to understand the principles behind canning.
