A Practical and Simple Guidebook for Preserving Food
I used to feel intimidated about preserving fresh vegetables. I thought all sorts of expensive equipment and a vast knowledge of preserving were needed in order to successfully preserve food. Then I purchased a copy of The Busy Person's Guide to Preserving Food and was delighted to find that I could almost effortlessly preserve many of the fresh vegetables I grew and still have good results with the finished product. Now, I look forward to a healthy crop of green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, and tomatoes and no longer wonder what I'll do with all of the produce.
This is an excellent all-around book for home preserving: root cellaring, canning, freezing and dehydrating. Plenty of recipes and I like how the author rated the final product. For instance, freezing strawberries yields a better end product than canning them. It helps the beginner determine the best way to preserve each fruit or vegetable.
