overall fun book-- nicely thought out, designed, and photographed. i think this is one of the best "all-in-one" preservation books i've come across in terms of diversity of food items, but keeping it easy in its approach without overwhelming recipes or suggestions, but with enough to give you something to go on if you want to explore a preservation method further!
Overall, I really enjoyed this one. Lots of creative recipes and clear instructions on the various methods of preserving. Water bath canning, pressure canning, fermenting, cellaring, salting, etc very cool! My only reservation lies in some of the WARNING introductory language. At first glance the book sells itself as a way to introduce preserving to novices and taking all of the fear and apprehension out of it. However in the very first few passages it tends to fear-monger and discourage experim [...]
We have tried out some of the recipes this year with all of our canning to give us some new flavours. I like that sugar is not heavy in the recipes and that honey is used in place of in many recipes that would require some sweetening. We will definitely be enjoying some of these goodies this winter.
Hands-down my favorite preserving book!
Excellent resource, beautifully photographed. Lots of great recipes and ideas throughout, sprinkled with stories of the author's journey of home preservation.

EVERYONE NEEDS T [...]
Full review including pictures of what I made, published on my blog, In the Stacks: nikkitheknack/2016The first part of the book gives you instructions on seven different styles of preserving, including fermenting, cellaring, and infusing. For complete beginners like me, these chapters will basically be your preserving Bible because they give you the basic knowledge you need to get started.The recipes are organized by ingredient, which makes grocery store trips a dream when you're making things [...]
Well written, interesting. Great recipes.
Thanks to and Random House for providing this book to me. It is a lovely cookbook for making all types of preserved foods -- canned, fermented, smoked and dehydrated. I collect cookbooks and while I love to cook, I am not big on making jams or canning food myself. However, this is a book that I will treasure as it includes a lot of information on equipment and procedures: something you won't get with other books that only include recipes. The photographs are stunning and the book includes many [...]
Fantastic book! If you're interested in preserving, then this is the ultimate book for you! I'm going to be passing this book along to my mother and father who have been active preserves and aspiring gardeners for years. Thanks again, great book, well laid out, beautiful illustrations! Highly recommend it!I won this book in a Giveaway promotion.
LOVE this book. So educational, beautiful, and easy to understand. Batch would be stunning on a coffee table or your kitchen bookshelf. Well-written and thorough - everything you'd need to know to get started in preserving, canning, smoking (I received a copy from Penguin through a giveaway)
I won this book in a first reads giveaway and I am really grateful, as it is fabulous! It is a really wonderful cookbook: beautiful photography, simple easy-to-follow directions, chock-full of interesting and informative tips, and delicious recipes. This cookbook is a rare gem!!
Looks intimidating and complicated but I think there are a few things I can attempt
Very nice I enjoyed all the recipes
