New Audiobook release: The Home Canning Guide for Everyone Who Eats

Hoping to expand on the success of my home canning guide that I published as an ebook in 2011, I've produced The Home Canning Guide for Everyone Who Eats as an audiobook

Recorded by voice professional Kris Keppeler, the guide is one hour and twenty six minutes long. It provides step-by-step instructions for using a water bath canner and pressure canner. Plus it has many tips for home canning, including how to find good produce and plenty of information to motivate you to enter the satisfying world of home food preservation.

The audiobook has 11 recipes with an emphasis on preserving tomatoes, jams, applesauce, and pickles. I also offer advice on how to find other recipes safe for home canning.

I decided to produce this successful ebook as an audiobook because it's always good to expand formats. At first I worried that a cookbook in audio might not be very desirable, but there actually is a niche market for vision impaired people. Just because someone's eyes aren't great at reading print does not mean a person isn't interested in cooking.

Also any person might be interested in listening to the information and learning how to can food at home while driving or knitting or cleaning. Audiobooks have been stimulating brains during monotonous activities for years.

Right now the audiobook is available at my website for $3.95. People can choose from either the zip folder of all the mp3 chapters or the m4b iTunes ready audiobook format.

I've inlcuded a sample mp3 chapter at the home canning audiobook page. Go have a listen and learn how the home canning process stops food from spoiling.

Soon this title will also be for sale at Audible and iTunes. I'll announce the retail distribution as soon as it happens. 

Even if you're a good listener but still want your cookbooks as text, you can get The Home Canning Guide for Everyone Who Eats as a printable pdf ebook. Read on screen or print all or part of it out. It's only $0.99 so that's some really affordable flexibility.
