Put‘em Up! By Sherri Brooks Vinton #8607
Preserving food is back in a big way, but those of us who did not grow up knowing these skills will need some help. The first part of this book gives step-by-step instructions for every kind of food preservation, including canning, freezing, drying, and pickling. Then comes the delicious part—lots of recipes featuring fruits and vegetables, some with contemporary flavor combinations as well as the tried-and-true favorites. Think Cherry and Black Pepper Preserves in addition to Granny’s Chow-Chow Relish. This book goes a long way in helping us to keep the local harvest, save money, and eat wholesomely.
