Overview

Preserving by the Pint: Quick Seasonal Canning for Small Spaces from the author of Food in Jars by Marisa McClellan

The perfect follow up to Food in Jars: More seasonal canning in smaller bites!


If most canning recipes seem to yield too much for your small kitchen, Preserving by the Pint has smaller—but no less delicious—batches to offer. Author Marisa McClellan discovered that most "vintage" recipes are written to feed a large family, or to use up a farm-size crop, but increasingly, found that smaller batches suited her life better. Working with a quart, a pound, a pint, or a bunch of produce, not a bushel, allows for dabbling in preserving without committing a whole shelf to storing a single type of jam.


Preserving by the Pint is meant to be a guide for saving smaller batches from farmer's markets and produce stands-preserving tricks for stopping time in a jar. McClellan's recipes offer tastes of unusual preserves like:

  • Blueberry Maple Jam
  • Mustardy Rhubarb Chutney
  • Sorrel Pesto
  • Zucchini Bread and Butter Pickles
Organized seasonally, these pestos, sauces, mostardas, chutneys, butters, jams, jellies, and pickles are speedy, too: some take under an hour, leaving you more time to plan your next batch.

I have a fairly small kitchen, so I don't really do large batch preserving. This book is perfect for me! Small amounts of scrumptious goodies from Honey Sweetened Strawberry Jam to Caramelized Onion Spread with Sage are perfect for small kitchens. Another great thing about the small batches, is being able to try something new without being stuck with a huge batch if you don't like it! I've seen interesting looking recipes in other preserving cookbooks that I just wasn't willing to put that amount of time and even money for all the ingredients as I didn't know if any of us would like it or not. No such problem here, and if you do like something, it would be simple to double or triple most recipes for larger batches. I really want to try the Rosemary Apple Jam, and the next times lemons go on sale I'd love to make the Lemon, Parsley and Garlic Salt. It sounds right up my alley! The recipes are not restricted to canning recipes. You will find things like Whole Wheat Biscuits and Jam-Glazed Chicken Legs as well. There's a little something for everyone. I received a copy of this book from Running Press for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Love this book so much that I gave it away! Now I'm getting another copy. My family is picky, so it's nice to make small batches and try something different. The author is creative in her presentation, and it is written as if you are right there with her. Much thought was put into this project and I appreciate the variety.

Love love love this book. It is perfect for me since I've just started out and find it hard to do large batches of anything. The recipes are easy to follow, beautifully illustrated and some really good tips. It's even beautiful to keep out on the coffee table (until you get it full of sticky stuff. But it hold up to being cleaned if done quickly with a damp napkin
