I am toying with the idea of canning soups and stews - but am new to the process and haven't found a good vegan/vegetarian cookbook to guide me. Any experienced canners with suggestions?

I don't have a good cookbook to suggest, but I know that in order to can non-acidic food like soups, stews or veggies, you need a pressure canner since the waterbath method is only for acidic food like fruit.

It's not specifically vegan/vegetarian, but I've followed the Food In Jars blog for a long time, and her cookbook is a good one.

I can a lot! I have a pressure canner but I've only done water canning so far, mainly fruit preserves and salsas.

I don't can soups or stews through. I think you'd need to pressure can. In fact I think I posted about that a while back. If you do a search people had lots of good suggestions and warnings.

Thanks all - yes, I was planning to pick up a pressure canner. I will check out Food in Jars ;) (both the cookbook and the blog).
