|About the Book|
I checked this book out from the library and will be shortly purchasing a copy for myself. This book was a very helpful introduction to preserving. It includes concise but complete explanations about both how to preserve food and the food science underlying your endeavors in the kitchen. It clearly explains the different preserving techniques and provides great yet simple recipes for the varied techniques. I used multiple recipes from the book, including pear jam and jalapeño salsa, and found them easy to follow and satisfying. Overall, this is a great resource book for those new to the world of preserving food.
