Review

"Preserving Summer's Bounty takes a giant step ahead in preserving advice. This up-to-the-minute guide pays tribute to your grandmother's techniques for 'putting up' vegetables, but what I like best are the quick and easy modern methods using the microwave, the freezer and more. These fast answers should lure even the busiest among us into storing the precious harvest of the garden."--Marian Morash, Author of The Victory Garden Cookbook

"Preserving Summer's Bounty is a treasure trove of sage advice and enticing recipes. It's a delightful book that will let you enjoy your garden's harvest all year long."--Carol Hupping, Editor of Stocking Up III

This book covers everything you need to know about freezing, canning, preserving, pickling, drying, juicing, & root cellaring. Step-by-step instructions make it easy for even a beginner to follow.
The book starts out with a harvesting guide that includes all methods that can be used to preserve each crop. Next, freezing is covered including a crop-by-crop guide & blanching methods.
Then both bath & pressure canning are demonstrated in detail. A processing timetable for each crop is included as well. Instructions for making fruit butters as well as cooked, pectin, & refrigerator jams & jellies follows.
The drying section includes shelf life for dried food & instructions for making your own dryer. There are also over 250 delicious recipes you can freeze, can or preserve and a resource guide for modern & heirloom seeds.

I've recently expanded my preserving repertoire beyond canned tomatoes & pickles and into the worlds of pressure canning, drying, and freezing. This book is perfect for the person exploring these (and other) options for "putting up" food. Especially helpful is the early section of the book with a long list of common fruits and vegetables with a summary of the best methods of preservation. Subsequent chapters present each method in detail (with good explanations of the science behind them) and provide greater detail on how to apply them to specific foods. I've also tried (with good success) several of the recipes that appear toward the end of the book. This was an excellent purchase for my needs.

This book is great for the the novice. It covers soup to nuts (literally)!! After my first (successful!) attempt at canning tomato sauce and pickeling zucchini, I wanted to get more out of my garden. This year we had to take a hiatus from producing our own vegatables, but I ordered this book now, so I can be better prepared for next year. This books gives tips on types of vegatables to plant, harvesting tips, and a guide on how to best preserve each item. It has also given me plenty ideas to plan for in the next few years. My goal is build a root cellar in my basement. This book was definatly worth the money for the advice it gave me.

This was my first year growing my own garden, so I purchased this book to guide me in all things preserving. I really used the heck out of it. I was able to learn everything I needed to freeze, can, jam, and dry a large variety of fruits and veggies. The book is laid out in a very clear, easy to find reference style, which made it easy for me to quickly flip through to what I needed at that moment.

This book is excellent. Instead of just a book of recipes, although it does have them, it has practical how-to instruction on canning, freezing, drying and more. It also goes beyond the how-to and gives you the why. It is easier to improvise and change things if you know the why and not just the how...this book does that.

I highly recommend it.

This is a good book if you're learning how to can, and it has some good tips and recipes in it, but its not my favorite. I bought this book, along with the Ball 400 Recipes book, and I prefer the Ball book over this one.

I am a newbie when it comes to preserving foods. I have read this book cover to cover and have learned so much about canning, freezing, dehydrating, and preserving all types of fruits, veggies and herbs. The step-by-step instructions for all of the methods is truly a valuable asset for this book. Now I can't wait for my garden to start producing so I can get working on the preserving process. I highly recommend this book to beginners, like me. This book also has some pretty interesting recipes that I can't wait to try.
