Preserving Summer's Bounty takes a giant step ahead in preserving advice.

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.

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.

There is a lot of information in this book and I love how it explains and details the various means of preserving. But...many of the recipes, particularly jams/jellies use honey instead of sugar like most recipes call for. That doesn't work for people with severe honey allergies and I haven't found anything in the book that describes how much sugar should be used in place of honey. As my family's honey allergy causes their throat to swell shut and block their airway, this doesn't work for me. It has a lot of good information and details on processes, what food product stores which way best and for how long but I can't use the recipes.
