Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prolific cookbook writer Chesman (Recipes from the Root Cellar: 270 Fresh Ways to Enjoy Winter Vegetables) covers multiple methods (e.g., fermenting, canning, refrigerating, freezing) for making small- and large-batch homemade pickles, from Napa Cabbage and Carrot Kimchi to Sweet-Tart Rhubarb Chutney. She features these pickles in dishes including Korean Bulgogi Tacos with Kimchi, Sweet Pickle Macaroni Salad, and German Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake. While some recipes appeared previously in Chesman's 1983 Pickles & Relishes, they've been updated for today's kitchens and tastes. VERDICT This all-purpose primer will please both novices and experts, especially those in search of a more traditional, less trendy approach.

What People are saying about this

Tigress in a Pickle
Andrea was researching and writing about pickling long before it was in vogue, and it shows in The Pickled Pantry! There's not a thing about pickling not covered in this book — a must for the pickling newbie and the avid pickler alike!
Sandor Ellix Katz
Excellent coverage of a broad spectrum of pickling techniques, including, but not limited to, fermentation. Andrea Chesman’s clear writing and simple directions make these processes accessible enough for first-timers, while her recipes are varied enough to provide new inspiration to longtime practitioners.
Sandor Ellix Katz, author of Wild Fermentation
Kathy Harrison
I opened this gorgeous book on a blustery winter's day. Two hours later I emerged, inspired and energized. Andrea Chesman has produced a book that makes one pine for pickles.
