The easiest and safest methods for making delectable preserves in small batches -- all year long.

"Takes the pressure off cooks who don't have much time... but still want to savor the season's bounty."
-Chicago Tribune (Review of the prior edition)

The Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving takes the guesswork out of home preserving. Both beginners and pros can make the most of fresh fruits and vegetables when these are readily available and inexpensive. Because these recipes require a minimum of time and fuss, home cooks will enjoy creating the preserves almost as much as everyone will enjoy tasting them.

Included are both traditional and new recipes. Detailed instructions provide the safest and latest processing methods. Some recipes are suitable for microwaves. A brand new chapter features freezer preserving as an alternative to the traditional methods. The more than 300 enticing recipes include:

  • Jams, jellies and low-sugar spreads
  • Conserves, butters and curds
  • Pickles, relishes and chutneys
  • Salsas, mustards and marinades
  • Flavored oils

This is an excellent book in many ways except that there are so many recipes that it's overwhelming. It is exactly the book to borrow when you want to make a few jars of something to make as very special gifts.

I have yet to try a recipe I didn't enjoy in this cookbook! The instructions are easy to follow, the recipes are timeless (but never dull), and the smaller quantities are ideal for those of us with limited storage space.
