I'm printing it out right now - I needed this type of planning.
I'm glad to start keeping records - this planning book is priceless for those of us who like to plan.

The first time I decided to keep a canning record it was VERY simple. I had a piece of notebook paper that I wrote down the date and what I canned that day.
At the end of the season it was kind of fun to count up how many jars I canned. I was shocked at how much I did... a little at a time and it really added up.
I now use these simple charts. I print these up to write down my goals for the year for each food type and then the dates and quantities I processed.
The first year was a guess as to how many jars to make of each type of food. The second year I simply looked back at last year’s list and noted what I ran out of early and planned to make more.
I downloaded the Canning Planner and am so pleased!
It can be printed to hard copy, plus saved on the computer for new pages to be print whenever needed.
It will assist in planning the garden, keeping track of what kinds of fruit and vegetables that we plant, the amount we harvest (or buy), the number of jars that we are able to can ... then, for planning for years ahead, we'll be able to look back and see what recipes, the amount (and if too little or too much) ...
there's so much more and I am looking forward to all the help it will provide!!
I’ve included information on the 5 simple steps I use to figure out how much to preserve for my family. Use my handy fill in the chart worksheet to help you figure out YOUR families needs.
A calendar helps to track things too.
It might not seem important to track what the dates were that you canned. But I found it helpful to look back at last year’s list and see what dates I started canning certain foods. I can assume that these foods will be in season at approximately the same times this year. I can plan around these dates.
Freezing and Drying Records
Many canners also preserve foods in other ways too. So I also include ways to track these activities too.
Handy reference sheets.
