The rapid sale of my books "How to Cook in Casserole Dishes" and "Candies and Bonbons and How to Make Them," as well as the knowledge that a want exists for a volume dealing with the preservation of fruits and vegetables, has encouraged me to publish this work under the title of "Canning, Preserving, and Pickling."

The book is intended as a practical guide to those who are desirous of becoming acquainted with the art of canning and preserving in its best and most economical form, and as the recipes have been tested in my school of cookery, they will be found quite reliable.
