Adobe Reader 10 (or a higher version) is needed for proper viewing and printing of the USDA canning guide files. You can download the free Adobe 9.2 Reader from http://get.adobe.com/reader/ We still recommend selecting 'print preview' before printing a guide to make sure that it will print properly on your computer system. All 8 links below make up the electronic version of the USDA canning guide; the book was split into the 8 files for easier downloading.

The December 2009 Complete Guide to Home Canning is also being sold in print form by Purdue Extension: The Education Store. All inquiries about purchases will be handled by them. The online store is located at http://www.extension.purdue.edu.
