Canning and Preserving Your Own Harvest: An Encyclopedia of Country Living Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carla Emery's Encyclopedia of Country Living is the bible for self-sustainable and green living. Here are canning recipes from the famed encyclopedia along with detailed explanations of the processes behind canning and preserving, and a wealth of recipes for fruits, vegetables, meats and fish, and herbs. From drying to pickling to freezing, Emery's preserving methods are as broad in scope as the recipes themselves. Do-it-yourselfers can welcome summer's arrival with Chunky Peach Jam and Oven-Dried Tomatoes, or host a fall harvest with fresh Herb Bouquets and Smoked Chicken. Step-by-step instructions, illustrations, charts, and informational sidebars make the process easy and enjoyable.

Review:

"In this collection, excerpted from Emery's seminal Encyclopedia of Country Living, home cooks get a wealth of practical ideas and techniques for making the most of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and meats come harvest season. Emery's plainspoken approach to pickling, canning, drying and freezing removes much of the worry; tips on labeling, prepping vegetables for the freezer and a thorough introduction to canning (complete with processing times) will give first-timers confidence and make a welcome refresher for veterans. The recipes lean heavily on timeworn favorites like jams (including a No-Cook Strawberry Jam), sauerkraut, pickles, basic beef jerky and corned beef, though duck confit and the prospect of creating one's own buried storage system should appeal to foodies ready for a new challenge. Sprinkled with tips on infusing liquors and recipes for the impatient like Quick Pickles (which reach their flavor potential in hours, rather than weeks) round out this fine introduction; it should have, like its subject matter, quite an extended shelf life." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Equipped with the knowledge of when to harvest, how to harvest, and what supplies are needed, anyone can learn what it means to create authentic, old-fashioned recipes in this age of grocery-store dependence. Carla Emery's in-depth knowledge comes from her years spent with farmers and homesteaders who truly lived off the land.

Organized by food categories, this book — culled from and expanding on sections in the famed Encyclopedia of Country Living — features a wealth of recipes, each preceded by a discussion of our changing motivation as food consumers along with detailed explanations of the processes behind canning and preserving.

From drying to pickling to freezing, Emery's preserving methods are as broad in scope as the recipes themselves. Do-it-yourselfers can welcome summer's arrival with chunky peach jam and oven-dried tomatoes, or host a fall harvest with fresh herb bouquets and smoked chicken.

Step-by-step instructions, charts, and informational sidebars make the process easy and enjoyable.
