Offers readers an opportunity to take 'ownership of home food preservation.' It's a master class in the necessary techniques and tools required for gathering, freezing, canning, drying, pickling, and fermenting ingredients. Mary Bilyeu, food editor, The Toledo Blade
Jackie Callahan Parente teaches the 'whys' and 'hows' of preserving foods so that you can experience the flavors of summer any time of the year! Chris Chamberlain, author of The Southern Foodie
A beautiful tome that is exactly what its title claims: essential. . . . The book is thorough but not ponderous and includes easy-to-read charts and guidelines for preserving the harvest. Photographs are both inspiring and informative. Canning Essentials should be in every food lover's kitchen library. Michele Anna Jordan, author of Vinaigrettes & Other Dressings
