When we first published this extensive and informative book about both growing and canning your own food, we were amazed how quickly they flew off our shelves. And after 11 years of this fantastic book being in print, it still is one of our readers’ favorites. Topics include: Gardening basics, Canning supplies, Canning basics and safety, Growing fruit, Home canning high acid foods, Growing and canning tomatoes, Pickles, relishes, sauces, and salsas, Growing and canning vegetables, and Raising and canning meats.
Want a meal in a hurry? Jackie gives recipes for “Meals-in-a-jar.” There’s no point in having tons of stored foods if you don’t know what to do with them all. Jackie provides some of her best tried and true favorite recipes at the end of this big, popular book. (We at Self-Reliance Publications can attest to how delicious Will’s blackberry cheesecake is!) This book makes a terrific gift for anyone who wants to learn more about canning and preparing food that they have grown or raised themselves.
