The Cherry Preserves recipe lists vanilla in the ingredient list, but nowhere in the directions does it tell you where to add it!
In the Pickled Green Beans recipe, there is no sugar listed in the ingredient list, but in the directions, it reads to boil the vinegar and water until the salt and sugar dissolve. Should I have added sugar or not?
I saw another reviewer who mentioned this problem, but ordered the book anyway because overall, the reviews were so great. When you are a beginner, the last thing you want is to find an error once you have started cooking. I had to consult other recipes online just to decide what to do next.
The book is divided into canning foods using the Water Bath method and the Pressure Canning method. I learned about purchasing canning equipment and safety tips to ensure my family the best food convenient year round.
What I found amazing is that other than preserves and pickles, some of my favorite foods such as chicken, beef, pasta sauce and even filling for apple cobbler can be canned!
The recipes and colorful pictures inspired me to go out and purchase supplies today.
But the sweet tooth in me could not wait to dive into preserving fruit and the vast flavor combinations of sweet and spicy, salsas and relishes. From the Classic Strawberry Jam to Apple butter and Mango Salsa (who’s ready for taco night!), winter is looking pretty good right about now. Lastly, canning meats and preserving prepared food such as soups and sauces make preparing weekly dinners less of a chore and more enjoyable; time and money saving recipes for busy families. And don’t forget dessert, there’s even a few recipes for pie filling! “Once you get the hang of canning, a whole world of possibilities opens up to you.” And it all started with a pickle.
