Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Atwood (The Cookbook for Kids), Rick Field (founder & CEO, Rick's Picks pickle company), and Rebecca Courchesne (co-owner, Frog Hollow Farm) cover the basics of equipment and techniques, sweeteners, acid, and pectin—making this perfect for the first timer. A variety of jams and jellies (e.g., Mixed Berry Jam, Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam, and Kiwi Lemon Jam) are included; Classic Dill Pickles, Pickled Beets, and Sweet Pickle Relish will keep preservers busy throughout the year. Highly recommended. DK's Preserve It! is a good companion for visual learners, and intermediate canners will appreciate Pam Corbin's The River Cottage Preserves Handbook.

Meet the Author

Rick Field rekindled a family tradition of pickle-making in the kitchen of his Brooklyn apartment in the mid-90's. Seven years later, he left a career in television to start Rick's Picks, a pickle company that uses locally-sourced, seasonal produce. Today his unique, award-winning pickles can be found in stores from coast to coast and at farmers' markets in the New York City area.

Rebecca Courchesne worked in the kitchens of Alice Waters' Cafe Fanny and Oliveto before moving to Frog Hollow Farm in 1995. Five years later, inspired by the abundance of fruit surrounding her, she launched a line of now-famous organic conserves, marmalades, jellies, and chutneys—all made with fruit grown in her own backyard.

    Good Preserving Book!

    I bought this book last summer when my Roma tomato crop was plentiful and my peach tree was full of peaches. I knew the basics of canning from my Grandma and Mom who canned tomatoes and jams every year, but wanted to still do that but branch out a bit too. So when I got this, I went to town right away on the Roasted Garlic Salsa recipe which quickly became a favorite in my house! It's soo good that it's completely worth the mess in my kitchen. I gave some away for Christmas presents as well and was well received for that gift.
    I used the peach preserve recipe also included in the book. It gave great options for if you wanted to use pectin and if you did not. We had so much that we did both ways. I also used the peaches to make the Peach BBQ sauce and I personally loved it on grilled chicken and porkchops. My husband was not a fan however.
    Overall, this is a great book and I look forward to this coming summer and using it more and more often!
