5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite canning/preserving/pickling book, September 4, 2010
This review is from: Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry (Paperback)
A friend bought this book for me as a gift, and it's a real winner. I've had it for only 2 weeks and have already used 4 of the recipes: Dilly Beans, Achar Segar, zucchini bread and butter pickles with ginger, and salsa verde. The salsa verde is great, and the zucchini pickles smelled heavenly as they were going into the jars. I only just put the achar segar into the fridge, but I'm looking forward to Indonesian fried rice tomorrow.

The recipes are clear, nicely presented, accurate (as far as I can tell), and there's a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and herbs represented. I haven't tried any of the meal or desert recipes yet, but those look tasty as well. All in all, I'm really enjoying this book so far and think that it will be my go-to reference for canning, preserving, and pickling from now on.
