Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book! It includes many pictures, charts, and diagrams. The book has chapters on: health and safety; what causes food to ripen and rot and how to stop it; where to store; natural storage (like "vegetable clamps and pit", or in sand); salting; lacto-fermentation; bottling (canning); chutneys; ketchups and sauces; pickles; jams, jellies and marmalades; juicing, cider and perry; drying; storing in oil; freezing; and then chapters for some different types of food (vegetables, fruits, herbs, and eggs).

Although the book was written by a couple from the UK, the book is very "American friendly"--all of the recipes have conversions for those of us in the US.

This book is exactly what I hoped it would be! It covers each of the methods of storing food in great detail, with extra explanations about common problems people have or issues that come up for readers who are new to storing food. (For instance, there is a little discussion about the types of equipment you use for different types of storage. What containers are best? What type of freezer is best for you?) There are also a ton of recipes throughout the book! Instructions for everything are VERY clear, and simple.

The authors do not advocate going out and buying a ton of expensive, specific stuff; they teach you traditional methods for storing food, and simple ways of doing things. They encourage experimentation! The authors believe that people want to control their food supply, and they believe that when we grow our own food we are "cutting out all the middle men and carbon costs, and ensuring the quality, safety and flavour of the food we eat." The book intends to teach people traditional ways of storing food that our grandparents and great-grandparents didn't teach us.

You can find all of this information on the web and with more details. I ended up selling it back to Amazon.

It's a nice book. Didn't wow me. Probably could have found all this info on YouTube as google. If you want a book instead of the Internet get this.
