This book is set up much like Susan's and David's earlier co-creation, Food Storage: Preserving Meat, Dairy, and Eggs. That is, rather than listing preservation methods, they have the book organized by the fruit, followed by the different preservation methods for that particular fruit. That makes my job so much easier, because that's the way I think. When I set out to preserve something, it's because I have a bunch of apples, or blackberries, or pears, and I need to know what I can do with that specific fruit. With Susan's and David's book, I don't have to flip back and forth looking at all the different methods of preserving fruit in general. All the information for the one item I'm preserving is in one place.
And there is a lot of information (preservation methods) for each item listed, sprinkled with Susan's and David's personal experiences.
They deviate just slightly from this organization method when it comes to nuts and seeds. Rather than listing each nut and each seed individually (followed by preservation methods), nuts and seeds are taken as a whole, with preservation methods described in detail. There is more that can be done with nuts and seeds than I ever knew, and I look forward to trying my hand at canning our hazelnuts this autumn.
Besides the knowledge and organization that went into this book, I appreciate the personal feel of Susan's and David's writing. It's like having them there, talking me through the process. While I have not personally met either author, I am familiar with both through online forums, and I know they both walk the walk. Food preservation is part of their daily lives, and they know what they talk about.
Like Food Storage: Preserving Meat, Dairy, and Eggs, this book is not a hefty tome. But it is packed with information all the same. And when my print version arrives, it will slide easily into a spot in my kitchen, next to their other book, as a quick, go-to resource. The value is unbeatable.
I honestly can't wait to see what these two come up with next.
It is thin and easily fits into a bug out bag.
