I just had Pickles, Pig, and Whiskey out of the library and after browsing through it I bought it. It is by John Currence. I do recommend giving it a look if you like Southern cooking. I have spicy okra pickles in my canner right now from the book. They are going to be delicious. One caveat, the time he gives for water bath canning is 45 mins. 15 mins. is fine with a 5 min. rest before removing from the bath.
I am going to be giving the book a work out!
