Description

Now anyone can preserve food at home with this safe, easy-to-use cookbook and guide. From homemade jams and chutneys to smoked fish and more, "Perfect Preserves" takes the guesswork and the intimidation out of preserving fruits, meats, and other foods. It gives easy, step-by-step explanations of eleven basic techniques, including drying, curing, salting, pickling, bottling, crystallizing, and freezing. Best of all, the book features more than eighty recipes, with master recipes and variations for making preserved foods, plus recipes for using these foods in everything from a heartwarming Winter Fruit Compote (using dried apple rings) to a savory Squash Soup with Smoked Mussels. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout with full-color "how-to" shots and photos of finished dishes.show more
