New to the Bookshelf: The Big Book of Preserving the Harvest by Carol W. Costenbader

Non-fiction. Paperback from Storey Publishing, LLC. Published in 2002. Purchased from Amazon.com.

The complete title for this book is The Big Book of Preserving the Harvest : 150 Recipes for Freezing, Canning, Drying and Pickling Fruits and Vegetables, but that is obviously a bit much to put into the post title. It’s a very helpful book and has been quite useful as I having been trying to make sense of the process of canning. I’ve also gleaned some more insights for my freezer habit. It’s certainly not an exhaustive book on any of the subjects, but it has a good amount of information for someone who is just starting out.

Publisher’s summary:
Remember how grandmother’s cellar shelves were packed with jars of tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes, pickled beets and cauliflower, and pickles both sweet and dill? Learn how to save a summer day – in batches – from the classic primer, now updated and rejacketed. Use the latest inexpensive, timesaving techniques for drying, freezing, canning, and pickling. Anyone can capture the delicate flavors of fresh foods for year-round enjoyment and create a well-stocked pantry of fruits, vegetables, herbs, meats, flavored vinegars, and seasonings. The Big Book of Preserving the Harvest introduces the basic technique for all preserving methods, with step-by-step illustration, informative charts and tips throughout, and more than 150 recipes for the new or experienced home preserver. Among the step-by-step tested recipes: Green Chile Salsa, Tomato Leather, Spiced Pear Butter, Eggplant Caviar, Blueberry Marmalade, Yellow Tomato Jam, Cranberry-Lime Curd, Preserved Lemons, Chicken Liver PatT, and more.
