The Ultimate Guide to Preserving and Canning : Foolproof Techniques, Expert Guidance, and 125 Recipes from Traditional to Modern- by Editors of the Harvard Common Press 224 pages, oversized book, large type
The Ultimate Guide to Preserving and Canning includes delectable canning and preserving recipes from traditional to modern, with expert guidance for canning rookies, as well as creative new directions for experienced veterans.
In one concise volume, you can learn—and master like a pro—all the ways to put up food in jars, from water-bath canning to pressure canning, from pickling to jam-making, and beyond!
The recipes include lots of preparations, both savory and sweet, and they range from blue-ribbon classics like dilly beans, sweet gherkins, applesauce, strawberry jam, and sauerkraut to new creations like Lavender Apple Butter, Raspberry-Rhubarb Sauce, Green Tomato Chutney, and Hibiscus Lime Jelly. A special chapter introduces readers to jam- and jelly-making using Pomona’s pectin, which requires little to no added sugar—thereby letting the natural sweetness of the fruit shine through beautifully.
This comprehensive book teaches beginners how to get started and gives seasoned veterans new techniques and recipes to try.
