We spent some time this weekend reading through the cookbook. Her dedication and tribute to her other half had us tearing up. Then, page-by-page, we began adding more items to our garden plans as we were inspired by one enticing recipe after another!
Preserving by the Pint is the second in a series of delightful & practical canning cookbooks by author & blogger Marisa McClellan. Her first book, Food in Jars Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round was released in 2012.
In addition to canning basics, Preserving by the Pint, includes tips on techniques, shelf life, cooking times and much more. It is packed with beautiful color images and more than 100 recipes thoughtfully sorted by season, which we think is brilliant! Recipes range from sweet to savory. Although it is designed for “Quick Seasonal Canning for Small Spaces” you’ll love her recipes no matter how much space you have!
We were impressed with the large variety of recipes. You’ll find more than just jams, jellies & pickles. The book includes unique recipes for somewhat out of the ordinary items that you may only have a small amount of, even if you do have a large garden.
If you don’t have a copy of Marisa’s first book Food in Jars, you can get your own copy here. Both of Marisa’s books will certainly be well-loved books in our canning library!
