I think this is a great book beginners (like me) who are (were) intimidated about the prospect of canning. The book makes the whole process seem entirely do-able--and even enjoyable! I picked this up from the library yesterday and made my first-ever batch of jam today. I've bookmarked enough pages that it's clear I'll be buying my own copy! ( )

Love her blog.... if I have room I'll purchase her book. Like Smitten Kitchen, if you follow the blog, you glean much. I've tried several jam recipes that are now on my favorites list. ( )

Food In Jars Preserving In Small Batches Year Round (Marisa McClellan)

I don't know what I was hoping for...perhaps a totally new idea....it was the year round that piqued my interest and it was internet order...so I didn't look at the book first.
Lots of jam and butter combos that I would not have thought to put together...
Basic preserving talk.....
Things like peaches in bourbon..(I prefer mine plain), granola, pancake mix etc
I'll reserve judgment until I peruse further.

This book includes: Jams, Fruit Butters, Jellies, Marmalades, Curds & Conserves, Chutneys & Condiments, Pickles, Salsas & Relishes, Tomatoes, Syrups, Whole Fruit, Granols in Jars (?), Nut Butters, Other Foods in Jars.....

Ok: so I didn't know that aside from fresh Maple Syrup, one could/would make syrups or for that matter "Granola in Jars".

The "Other Foods in Jars" consisted of: pancake mix, beer bread mix (Really?), chocolate cake in a jar (again, Really?), trio of flavored salts, homemade cultured butter, homemade vanilla extract, chicken & vegetable stock.

SUGAR: SUGAR: SUGAR: SUGAR: And More SUGAR: is in these recipes.... even in the salsas & relishes..... That surprised me!

These are no quick & easy recipes, these take a great amount of time & concentration and in my opinion if you are going to go through all the time to sterilize the jars, prepare a water bath, chop/dice/peel the fruits/vegetables, you might as well make more than 4 jars of something.

You might ask yourself: "Why did she give this 3 ★ if she didn't write a glowing review?" The reason being, it is a good book with recipes that sound as if I might actually taste and enjoy them. ( )

I borrowed this book from the library and it's so good that I want my own copy. I made her gingery pickled beets, blackberry sage jam and dilly beans. Everything I tried was really good. ( )
