For what it's worth, my favorite canning book is the USDA book (Complete Guide to Home Canning or similar). It does have some recipes, but mostly it's about canning individual items. Well, I should clarify that my book is an older one, and that's how it's set up. I think they've revised - and they've probably kept a similar format.Still trying to find a good canning recipe book that has basic recipes not funny fancy ones.
Another favorite is the Food Storage series by Susan Gregersen and David Armstrong. They take an item - say, apples - and list the different ways you can preserve apples (canning, dehydrating, etc). I always like that approach because that's usually how I preserve something is by having a lot of one thing - due to a big garden harvest, or a sale at the store.
