Ball Blue Book & A Chili Recipe PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bethanie   

I was knocking on doors and talked to a lady making chili sauce. It smelled so good I had to get the recipe and go home and make it. For fun, I pulled out my old Ball Blue Book of canning recipes. It was printed in 1944 and cost ten cents. The dedication and end page are about as patriotic as I’ve heard in awhile. Read it and salute…


“In the Spirit of the Freedom for which we fight, we face the future with confidence, for a better world, we carry on.”

            “Food is Strength. The captains of the Nation’s kitchens know that strength, of body, mind, and spirit is needed to rebuild a war-wracked world into a place of freedom, peace, and contentment.”

            “Home Canning reduces the burden on cross-country transportation, releases valuable storage space, saves man-hours, simplifies meal planning, and helps prevent inflation, but above all these, it helps the weak grow stronger and the strong to remain strong.”


There you go. As a home canner of America, I think I deserve your vote.
