There are several different methods of preserving fruits and vegetables and all give delicious results. Jams, jellies, fruit butters and curds, bottled fruits, chutneys, pickles and salted vegetables are all practical and economical ways to preserve seasonal produce. And you don’t need a load of kitchen gadgets and equipment to get started: a heavy-based pan, a funnel, a sugar thermometer and a selection of glass storage jars are all you need! Most fruits and vegetables can be used for preserving, and what better and more satisfying way to use up home-grown or local produce than to puree, pickle, bottle or salt it and consume it throughout the year! Ingredients, popular fruits and vegetables, sugars, cooking techniques, along with storage information and helpful hints and tips followed by 60 delicious recipes make this book your one-stop guide to successful preserving.

Not your usual preserving book. Full of tips and information in easily accessible language by an expert. Recipes work and are easy to follow.
Like many modern-day women, no one taught me how to do many of the chores our grandmothers took for granted – like canning and preserving. I have always wanted to learn how to can and this is absolutely the most fabulous book! Carol Wilson takes readers on a journey all the way from the BEGINNING of defining various preserving-related terms all the way to recipes for specific jelly, jam, cheese, and pickle recipes and more! She tells you what equipment you’ll need and exactly what to do with it – step by step. I’m a visual reader so I also like the fact that the book uses an easy-to-read font with a layout that doesn’t overwhelm you on each page. Finally, I like the fact that Skyhorse Publishing has chosen to use a sturdy hardcover binding. This is beneficial since readers would most likely be using the book in or near the kitchen. It was a wise choice. I would highly recommend this if you’re interested in canning or preserving – especially if you’re a beginner!
