Kerr Home Canning Book, 1972, Near-Mint Condition! Annual booklet from the Kerr Glass Manufacturing Corp., Sand Springs, Oklahoma. Ruth Kerr, president of the company until 1967, always published a greeting on the inside front cover of the booklet. This 1972 booklet talks about the food “our men-folks . . . are demanding.” Outside cover has a bit of shelf wear. Pages are perfect.
56-page booklet in mint condition. Interesting facts about the process of canning. Did you know that 12 pounds of asparagus yields 6 pint jars full? Or that nine baskets of cherries would yield two pint jars full of pitted cherries? 15 pineapples yield 30 pint jars, and one bushel of tomatoes yields 20 quart jars full.
