Large book. About half hot-water bath canning and pickling, and half pressure-canning, curing and smoking. She makes her own pectin and puts a lot of kiwis and apples into recipes to help things thicken. She also puts a tiny bit of butter in her jam. She has a lot of interesting flavor combinations. This is one of the few cookbooks I've gotten out of the library about preserving food that has included meats.

I enjoyed this book very much. Sound practical advice on food preservation given in an easily understandable format. I purchased my own copy after taking it out of the library.

OK, the title is a bit odd. But this book is a gem. Consistent 5 star reviews on amazon. I'm going to buy it. The book is packed with priceless suggestions to make those preserves perfect instead of just OK. I got some very good ideas to improve my dill pickles. How to test that the raspberry jam will set without going to the trouble of putting it in jars and being disappointed - my problem in spades. There is a ton of useful information here if you are interested in buying, eating, preserving local food.
