Overview

Why buy it when you can make it? From smoked bacon and dill pickles to your own home-brewed ale, trust the test kitchen experts to guide you through more than 100 foolproof kitchen projects.

Pantry Staples For the freshest, best results, make your own ketchup, hot sauce, and vanilla extract. For the adventurous, there's sriracha, harissa, and wine vinegar.

Jams and Jellies Preserve the seasons with orange marmalade, strawberry jam, and apple butter, while wine jelly and bacon jam are great year-round options.

Pickled Favorites Get your pickle fix with classics like bread-and-butters and sour dills, plus test kitchen favorites like dilly beans, giardiniera, and kimchi.

The Dairy Best Making fresh cheeses like ricotta and goat cheese, churning butter, preparing yogurt, and even making soy milk (for tofu) are simpler than you think.

Charcuterie at Home From artisanal pancetta, prosciutto, pâtés, and terrines to everyday favorites like bacon, chorizo, and beef jerky, our recipes have the carnivore covered.

Snacks and Sweets Make store-bought favorites like rich buttery crackers, marshmallows, and graham crackers fresher and better. Or take the fancier route with lavash crackers, grissini, salted caramels, and chocolate-hazelnut spread.

Beverages Stock your fridge with root beer, ginger beer, and cold-brew coffee. Stock your bar with sweet vermouth, cocktail bitters, and tonic water. Plus, our IPA beer recipe is ideal for first-time home brewers.

America's Test Kitchen located just outside of Boston, is the home of Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country magazines. Our mission is to test recipes until we understand how and why they work and arrive at the best version. You can watch us work by tuning in to America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country from America's Test Kitchen on public television.

    Worth every penny!

    This book is full of the items that we take for granted in our kitchen or are typically the specialty items that are hard to find or expensive to buy - and it explains how to make them in your standard home kitchen.

    I purchased this book as soon as I could and have completely fallen in love with it. It has pictures to show how the items should look in process (not just the finished results), detailed instructions on how to do it and a great explanation as to why their recipe works. The introduction to each recipe also gives a background understanding of how the developer created the dish.

    There are some recipes that require special equipment (canners, food processors), but all of it is readily available either at a local source or on-line. Don't let this hold you back!

    Great book

    I have made quite a few of the recipes in this book and everyone of them has come out great. Highly recommend this for anyone that is looking for simple recipes for a lot of common foods that are bought at stores.
