Product Details

Marisa McClellan's first cookbook for accessible home preserving for jams, jellies, pickles, chutneys and more, as seen on her beloved food blog Food in Jars.

Includes 100+ recipes for conserves, whole fruit, tomato sauces, salsas, marmalades, nut butters, seasonings and more. Small batches make them easy projects for a canning novice to tackle, and the flavors will keep experienced jammers coming back for more. Sample some Apricot Jam and Rhubarb Syrup in the spring, and then try your hand at Blueberry Butter and Peach Salsa in the summer; Dilly Beans and Spicy Pickled Cauliflower ring in the fall, while Three-Citrus Marmalade and Cranberry Ketchup are the harbingers of winter.

McClellan’s childhood stories of wild blackberry jam and California Meyer lemon marmalade make for a read as pleasurable as it is delicious; her home-canned food—learned from generations of the original “foodies”—feeds the soul as well as the body.
