Try this web site and links
www.homecanning.com

Look in the library for canning instructions and recipes. Listed are just a few to get you started.
The Food Lover’s Guide to Canning: Contemporary Recipes & Techniques Rich, Chris 641.42R
Joy of Cooking All About Canning & Preserving Rombauer, Becker 641.42R

Make sure you have all your supplies at hand. Also look into freezing as well as canning. I'm still waiting on my tomatoes and cucumbers.

I freeze just about everything. Tomatoes are easy, just boil them until the skins crack, peel and freeze. They are great with macaroni and cheese! Tomatoe sauce is fun, and you can freeze that too. I make mine with spinach, carrots, zuchinni, anything I have in the garden that will cook. It's really good and great for those winter meals when there aren't many fresh veggies. I usually make pickles with cucumbers, those are easy but you can't freeze them.

There is a book at rareseeds.com (Heirloom Gardener Magazine/Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds) on this page, it's called "Sensational Salsas - From Apple to Zucchini" it looks really good. :) I thought of you today when I was flipping through this years seed catalog thinking of next year...

I am going to check out that book title and others from that site. I am trying to find more interesting ways to serve vegetables and fruit.
