More and more Maritimers are recognizing the many benefits of eating locally and even growing their own food, and starting to wonder how to get even more value from their kitchen gardens or their favourite farmer’s stall. Enter Elizabeth Peirce, vegetable-gardening guru and lifelong preserver of food! In You Can Too! Peirce describes all the best ways to preserve Maritime crops: Canning, pickling, dehydrating, freezing, fermenting, and using root cellars. She also includes inspiring interviews and profiles of some of this region’s most enthusiastic preservers of food.

With detailed instructions, full-colour photographs, and recipes for old Maritime favourites like mustard pickles as well as innovative new concoctions like spicy plum ketchup, You Can Too! is a complete how-to for anyone interested in eating delicious local food all year round—and doing it on the cheap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great resource! I love this book! As the other reviews have mentioned, it's definitely not a beginner resource. While she does cover some need to know aspects of canning quite well, if you're new to canning you should definitely seek out other resources for the basics and use this as a place for generating ideas about to preserve specific foods in different ways. It doesn't have a ton of recipes, but it does have some popular Maritime ones, as well as some new spins on classic Maritime preserves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from interesting, but not great a good reference book with lots of options on how to preserve. I was a bit disappointed that there weren't more recipes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So close I was really excited to find this book as I am interested in canning local products this upcoming season. It does have some good information but it uses terms that an inexperienced person like myself does not understand. It doesn't have a step-by-step guide on the canning process but does contain some interesting recipes. I wasn't expecting to need to go to other resources to get basic information.
