How to can safely

Asked August 17, 2016, 12:21 PM EDT

I am a first time canner & scared to death to try now that I bought equipment. Interested in salsa, peppers, tomatoes, pickles, & jam. Do you have instructions, and/or recipe books? Specifically I want to use fresh lime juice vs vinegar or lemon in salsa, I only want to make 4-8, 1/2 pints
