Overview

Jo Ann Gardner and her husband, Jigs, have been farming for nearly four decades, specializing in fruit, dairy, and herb products. Jo Ann makes and sells seventy-five cases of jams, jellies, and preserves a year, making her a master on the subject. This delightful reissue of her classic text is a testament to the continued relevance of her years of gardening knowledge.

In this updated and full-color edition of Old-Fashioned Jams, Jellies, and Sweet Preserves, Jo Ann takes you back to the basics. This is a clear, concise horticultural and culinary reference book that concentrates on the small fruits, with a glance at tree fruits and wild fruits, too. It offers environmentally sound directions for growing and harvesting, as well as simple guidelines for canning and preserving. Moreover, it contains a treasure trove of seventy-five exciting recipes for preserving, baking, and cooking—unusual marmalades, for example, are coupled with English muffins. From gooseberries and elderberries to classic strawberries and rhubarb, Jo Ann has it covered! Whether an old hand or a novice, you’ll find Old-Fashioned Jams, Jellies, and Sweet Preserves enlightening and informative, not to mention delicious!

Meet the Author

Jo Ann Gardner has been growing, preserving, and baking with small fruit for over forty years. She and her husband operated a small hand-/horse-powered farm on a remote peninsula on Cape Breton Island, Canada, which inspired books, articles, and lectures beginning in 1987. Together they wrote Gardens of Use and Delight, describing how they transformed a bare farm into a lush landscape using simple methods. Jo Ann and Jigs now live in Westport, New York, in the Champlain Valley where they have established a small farm with extensive gardens.
