To some people, canning may look like an old-fashioned activity. It has gone out of fashion for quite a while, until the soaring food prices and ‘back to nature’ attitude of people changed all this. Nowadays, more and more people choose to (and enjoy) making their own jams, chutneys etc. If you have a large garden brimming with fruit and vegetables, canning is a fantastic way of having delicious jams all year round. If you don’t have enough fruit in your backyard, then buying fresh fruit from your local farmers markets is a great alternative.
Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry’ is a lovely recipe book by Liana Krissoff. The book is divided into seasons and season-appropriate recipes. The recipes cover more traditional products, such as Classic Peach Jam, Grapefruit Marmalade, Kosher Dill Pickles and Pickled Beets. However, you’ll find other more different and ‘exotic’ recipes, like the Creole-Spiced Pickled Okra, Pear, Clementine and Pecan Preserve to Quince and Plum Jelly or Middle Eastern Pickled Turnips. If you are a bit adventurous, you’ll love the more than 150 different recipes this book has to offer. The recipes also include pickled, dried and frozen food ideas. And in case you are a complete canning novice, the book covers canning techniques and information to get you started.
I would certainly recommend this absolutely mouth-watering canning book for the modern man or woman. In addition, you’ll never run out of gift ideas anymore, as I am sure everybody would love to receive a home-made preserve, made from local food. Grab your copy of this cool book here and get started on discovering the joys and benefits of canning for your family.
