This comprehensive guide to home preserving should be on every cook’s shelf! Full of inspiring recipes for making salsas, relishes and chutneys, this book also provides excellent instruction on preserving with the boiling water method and making fermented pickles.

Ms. Vinton also cautions the amateur cook how to ensure that the foods are packed well for storage. This is an all important element of home preserving, one most young cooks worry about considerably. How does a cook ensure that there is enough acid in the mixture for the fruit or vegetables to remain safe? A few helpful tips ensure that the home preserving pioneer provides a vast variety of tasty foods for family, friends and guests all year long.

There is a nice balance between instruction and inspiration in this book. A good resource for cooks just learning about the wonderful world of home preserving.
