Projects range from perfect pantry staples (Butter, Crackers, Pasta) to festive giftables (Toasted Walnut Brandy, Lemon Curd, Peanut Butter Cups); some give quick gratification (Mayonnaise, Rumkirschen, Potato Chips), while others reward patience (Gravlax, Ricotta Salata, Kimchee). Practical prep-ahead and storage instructions accompany each recipe, several give variations (like Caramelized Onion and Thyme Butter-yum), and most share ideas on how to use it, serve it, and give it away.
Complete with color photographs and the accumulated wisdom of author Karen Solomon's years of food crafting, "Jam It, Pickle It, Cure""It" is your one-stop resource for turning your culinary inspiration into a pantry full of hand-labeled, better-than-store-bought creations
