Marisa McClellan's first book for accessible home preserving for jams, jellies, pickles, chutneys, and more, as seen on her beloved food blogFood in Jars.Popular food blogger and doyenne of canning, Marisa McClellan, is using small batches and inventive flavors to make preserving easy enough for any novice to tackle. If you grew up eating home-preserved jams and pickles, or even if you're new to putting up, you'll find recipes to savor. Sample any of the 100 seasonal recipes:
  • In the spring: Apricot Jam and Rhubarb Syrup
  • In the summer: Blueberry Butter and Peach Salsa
  • In the fall: Dilly Beans and Spicy Pickled Cauliflower
  • In the winter: Three-Citrus Marmalade and Cranberry Ketchup
Marisa's confident, practical voice answers questions and quells any fears of accidental canning mistakes, and the book is written for cooks of any skill level. Stories of wild blackberry jam and California Meyer lemon marmalade from McClellan's childhood make for a read as pleasurable as it is delicious; her home-canned food-learned from generations of the original "foodies"-feeds the soul as well as the body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites! This book has excellent recipes that are easy to follow. I've had some really good results. I've made bread and butter pickles and her dill pickles is my go-to recipe now. The size of the book is quite compact as well which I find helpful for smaller spaces like mine.
