My Review:
With the plethora of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs available in the summer and autumn months, knowledge of proper preservation can prolong your enjoyment of your abundance. In the past, our grandparents would preseve, pickle, and "put up" food for the bleak winter months. Now with all foods available year round at the local grocery, these practices have fallen by the wayside and the traditions are not necessarily passed down through the generations anymore. Sherri Brooks Vinton answers all the questions you could ever have about preserving food safely and efficiently. My first project is going to be strawberry jam. What will you try?
