The book Food in Jars readers have been waiting for: 140 recipes for the preserving kitchen, helping you use up your homemade pantry
Marisa McClellan wants everyone to know that a pantry full of homemade jams, jellies, salsas, and pickles can do a whole lot more than accompany toast. They can add bold bursts of flavor to your home cooking In her fourth book, she provides 140 recipes for incorporating preserves into everyday dishes. It is as simple as stirring applesauce into a dish of baked oatmeal, brushing apricot jam onto a whole chicken, or building your pasta salad with a jar of pickled vegetables. Recipes include:
- • Jam-Filled Biscuits
- • Preserved Lemon Hummus
- • Strawberry Basil Pizza
- • Jam-Lacquered Chicken Wings
- • Lemon Curd and Blueberry Tart
- • Pantry Sangria
With chapters focusing on great ways to use preserves throughout the day and for every meal, readers aren't required to have a specific preserve on hand to work, making this cookbook flexible and easy to use for both experienced and novice canners.
As one of the most beloved voices in canning and preserving, Marisa serves as a kitchen muse to help each reader complete the cycle of empty jar to empty jar. Add The Food in Jars Kitchen to your collection, an inspired workhorse of delicious eats.
"Instead of letting jams and pickles languish in your fridge...Marisa McClellan gives us the nudge and the tools we need to liven up our cooking." Kristen Miglore, Creative Director of Genius at Food52 and author of Genius Recipes and Genius Desserts
"One can eat-or give away-only so many jams or pickles on their own. Marisa has not only given me delicious destinations for my garden creations, but also justification for planting and preserving more! And I know that I'll make many of her recipes with store-bought preserves, because they sound so good that they stand on their own." Martha Holmberg, coauthor of Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables
"I am thrilled to now be able to point [readers] to Marisa McClellan's gorgeous new cookbook, which is full of ideas ranging from jam-sweetened granola to weeknight skillets with sauerkraut." Emma Christensen, managing editor for Simply Recipes
