About this product
- DescriptionPreserving has been around for thousands of years, from native people smoking and curing meats to pioneers and settlers putting up fruits and vegetables. What started long ago as a means of survival, home preserving has grown into a large component of the locavore movement, with consumers wanting to eat local, seasonal foods as part of a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Although canning might be the most common type of home preserving, many other methods fall under the umbrella: drying, freezing, jam-making, pickling, curing, smoking, and salting and fermenting. Wisdom for Home Preservers features 500 tips and techniques on all of these types of preserving;ten chapters (one for each method) provide detailed, practical information, including storing and troubleshooting, while basic recipes help vice home preservers get started. The book is illustrated with simple diagrams where required, as well as a series of specially commissioned licut prints by printmaker Melvyn Evans.
