I did not really like the layout and organization of the questions and answers. It seems like some questions you would want answered first, like the actual process of canning are a quarter of the way into the book, and recipes are mixed in with the questions and answer sections before you are even introduced to how to can things. However, everything you need to know before canning, preserving or drying is in here if you want to sit down and read the whole book before actually making anything.
The drying, fermenting and infusion sections were set up better and are usually things left out of other food preservation methods, so that was nice to see.
This is a good how-to book for someone new to canning and food preservation methods, not a recipe book. There are several recipes interspersed throughout that are easy and go along with the questions and answer section before it.
This book was provided for free in return for an honest review.
While I utilize some methods of putting up food, I'm still in the process of learning about other methods. I know how easy it is to put off trying different methods because they seem intimidating. In Put 'em Up! Preserving Answer Book, Sherri Brooks Vinton steps into the world of canning, freezing, drying, fermenting, and making infusions by answering common questions and explaining the ins and outs of these different methods.
For the true beginners and those who need a refresher course, Vinton first covers the basics of food preservation, talks about where to find quality food and how to properly store it, and discusses prep work for the foods. The next section dives into the preserving process which covers general information about canning, water-bath canning (boiling-water method), pressure canning, refrigeration, freezing, drying, fermentation, and finally, infusions. The final section gets into the actual application of the skills talked about in the rest of the book. The topics include answers about sweet and savory spreads, pickles, vegetables, whole fruits, and tomatoes and tomato products.
