“If a bountiful harvest has you wondering how, exactly, to preserve all of this perfect fresh food to enjoy all winter long, Canning & Preserving with Ashley English is the perfect place to start. Full of information about canning, pickling, making jams and jellies, and other food preservation methods, this book is a crash course in learning how to "put up" food and stock a pantry...I definitely recommend Canning & Preserving with Ashley English for those new to canning and preserving. It's also a good read for those of us who find ourselves canning the same things year after year--you may just find something new to preserve! The relaxed, friendly tone of the book is encouraging, and the instructions are clearly written, taking confusion out of the canning process and helping you enjoy this seasonal task even more.” --About.com Organic Gardening
Learn about the necessary tools of the trade, crucial safety tips, and hot water bath processing and pressure canning. Discover the all-important science of salt and sugar, and how to select the best possible ingredients, favoring seasonal, organic, and local options.
