Product Details

We were lucky enough to have the fabulous Marisa McClellan of FoodinJars.com, here at MightyNest to do a small batch canning demo and book signing for her second book, Preserving by the Pint! This is a wonderfully inspiring canning book, appealing to veteran canners looking for new methods and an easy and approchable canning introduction for beginners.

Organized by season, it focuses on super small batches of jams, jellies, pickles, chutneys and other preserves. It is perfect for small households, families who get CSA shares, and those with small backyard gardens. McClellan’s recipes offer tastes of unusual preserves like Blueberry Maple Jam, Mustardy Rhubarb Chutney, Sorrel Pesto, and Zucchini Bread and Butter Pickles. 

Marisa McClellan was living in a high-rise in Philadelphia when she rediscovered canning, and found herself under the preserving spell. She grew accustomed to working in large batches since most “vintage” recipes are written to feed a large family, or to use up a farm-size crop, but increasingly, found that smaller batches suited her life better. Working with a quart, a pound, a pint, or a bunch of produce, not a bushel, allows for dabbling in preserving without committing a whole shelf to storing a single type of jam.
