    Home Preserving At Its Finest. This comprehensive guide to home

    Home Preserving At Its Finest. This comprehensive guide to home preserving should be on every cook’s shelf! Full of inspiring recipes for making salsas, relishes and chutneys, this book also provides excellent instruction on preserving with the boiling water method and making fermented pickles.

    Ms. Vinton also cautions the amateur cook how to ensure that the foods are packed well for storage. This is an all important element of home preserving, one most young cooks worry about considerably. How does a cook ensure that there is enough acid in the mixture for the fruit or vegetables to remain safe? A few helpful tips ensure that the home preserving pioneer provides a vast variety of tasty foods for family, friends and guests all year long.

    There is a nice balance between instruction and inspiration in this book. A good resource for cooks just learning about the wonderful world of home preserving.

    I liked this book.

    I'm new to canning and it does give basic canning instructions etc. It definitely has some really unique recipes in it which I will be trying.
    I do think I still need the Ball canning book to use as the bible and use this more as a recipe guide.

    I think its a little pricy for the amount of recipes you get but I do like the book overall.

    Highly Recommended

    I haven't had a chance to try out most of the procedures yet. It's too early in the season. I find the book loaded with information. It ontains multiple processes for various produce. The instructins are comprehensive and easy to follow. I don't have a lot of freezer space now so I'm looking at other ways to preserve. I'm going to try to dry some cherries this weekend. If it works as well as I hope I'll buy more in season next year.
