Freeze, dry, can, root cellar, and brine your favorite produce right at home. Janet Chadwick’s introduction to the world of preserving provides step-by-step instructions and inspiring easy-to-follow recipes. Pick up a crate of inexpensive, less-than-perfect tomatoes at the farmers’ market and turn them into jars of spicy salsa, or buy a few extra peaches and can a delicious batch of jam to serve with Sunday breakfast. You’ll extend the summer harvest and find yourself serving up delicious, locally grown food all year long.
