Looking for a good book on canning. I'd like it to have some basic recipes too. Any suggestions? Any favorites?

The "Ball Blue Book" is the old standard, costs maybe 8 bucks or look online here: http://www.freshpreserving.com/
and click on "How to can". Lots of info.

I'd like one that covers pâté and terrines as wEll, which the USDA deems as unsafe but has been done for centuries in Europe... IdEas?
