The Amish Canning Cookbook Is Officially a Bestseller!

Hello, all! Yesterday my publisher informed me that the ebook version of The Amish Canning Cookbook was listed last Friday in Publisher's Weekly as #7 on the top-20 bestsellers list in the cooking, food and wine category. I'm pretty happy about that!



  1. I just received my copy of your book and I am excited to get started canning. My hubby likes to take soup for lunch each day and your recipes are all quart size. Can I make them in pint jars, or is it better to just open a quart jar and send him with half?

    1. Hi, Mary-

      Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner!We had a spate of family emergencies plus the birth of a baby, so I've been out of my usual schedule taking take of folks.

      You can definitely can in pints instead of quarts. Just reduce the canning time by 10-15 minutes and you'll be fine. But with all the men in my house, I've found that they love the quart jars for their large appetites, so I generally use quart jars...and if I have some left, I have been known to eat the remainder for my own lunch along with a piece of buttered bread to fill in the corners. It works out well!

      Blessings and happy canning!
