As a dietitian and whole foods advocate, I really appreciate how she advocates the use of natural sources of pectin in jams and Jellies. As an adventurous eater, I love how the recipes use herbs, wine and other imaginative ingredients to provide pop to classic canning recipes. As a person who cans for a very small family, I am so glad that recipes to use the canned products are also part of the narrative. As someone who cherishes eating seasonally, it's great that recipes are organized by season [...]
I'm not sure how one counts a cookbook as read (I read all the intros, lead ins, sidebars, and instructions, just not every recipe through and through), especially when it is about a technique that I don't know how to do yet, but my visceral response was very positive. I can't say I am utterly unintimidated by canning now, but the recipes in this book and the stories make me want to try. The author is a wee bit too hipster homesteader for me in style, but she's genuine and it makes me feel like [...]
If you think that canning is for grandmas, this book might change your mind. With sleek photographs, a section of cute tear-off jar labels, and recipes for both the classic and reimagined, this book will guide a new generation through the ins and outs of food preservation. Do-It-Yourself fans will find recipes organized by season, both for canned foods and recipes to compliment the fruits of their labors. The range of recipes is impressive, with everything from lemon curd to Chinese Plum Sauce, [...]
I used up my enormous stash of mason jars trying recipes from this book. Three of the four recipes I tried were fantastic. The fourth was my fault--I used commercial pectin instead of green apples and the jam turned out gloppy. Lesson learned: shortcuts yield disappointment. Krissoff's directions are clear and concise and her commentary is engaging and personal without being precious. I checked it out from the library but I think I'm going to have to buy it.
Canning for a New Generation is a terrific resource -- and my go-to book for home canning. Having recently gotten into canning, I wanted a book that didn't call for buckets of sugar in each jam recipe, that stayed away from pre-packaged pectin, and that was a bit more creative in its use of ingredients. In other words, I didn't want "your grandmother's canning cookbook." This book definitely delivers on all of those accounts.Krissoff's preserve and jam recipes call for far less sugar -- and no b [...]
So much more approachable than something like the "Ball book of Canning". Takes a lot of the fear factor away and makes canning look cool and hip and new.I only tried one of the recipes 'Pear and Ginger' preserves. It came out very good. There are several others I would like to try, like the fermented yard long beans, and the strawberry basil jam, but it's the wrong season.I checked this out from the library, but it's now on my purchase list.
I think this girl's life somewhat mirrors mine -- I always helped with the garden but stayed out of the way for canning. Now I find myself with a garden and the desire for fresh food in the winter. This is an easy read and helps you see that canning isn't difficult at all. Thanks Liana for helping me can my first batch of tomato sauce ever!
Love this book! Maybe it's preemptive to give this a 5 before I even make any of the recipes, but there's no way I'm going to hate them. The recipes vary from traditional (strawberry jam) to modern (chamomile scented strawberry syrup), and they are organized by type (fruit or veg) and season.
Canning and preserving has returned of late to the repertoire of home cooks and chefs and it deserves to be a ‘go-to’ skill without the fear and complicated mess experienced by earlier generations of practitioners. Canning for a New Generation (Abrams Books, 2010) delivers on its vision to reconnect today’s cooks with canning and preserving with solid information, flavorful seasonal recipes and a globally inspired touch.Author Liana Krissoff almost immediately takes the fear out of canning [...]
The postal carrier made my day this afternoon when she delivered my birthday gift from my sister, Sherri. I've been lusting after it for so long on my amazon wish list that when I first opened the package, I thought it was something I already owned. I love the photos, I love the font, I love the print of the section pages and I love the paper on which those photos and fonts and prints are created.In short, I love this book! Not only does it have amazing recipes for everything from Raspberry jam [...]
Love this book and I have already tried a couple of the items in the book and have many more flagged to do. In fact my partner is helping with this list, ha ha! His favorite so far is the "Simple pickled jalapeno slices." He has been putting them on everything from his salads to his sandwiches!Ms. Krissoff's book has good pictures and the directions are clear and easy to follow. She also has made the batches in smaller sizes, unlike many canning books that put up great pounds of items at a time, [...]
Really well formatted and written. I really liked how easy to follow all the recipes were. Oh, and there's a TON of recipes. I can't imagine someone picking this up and not finding at least 5 recipes they'd like to try. There is a wide variety of recipes, ranging from fruit preserves and jams to pickled vegetables to sauces to frozen yogurts to tartsyou get the idea. Lots of delicious stuff, basically. Oh, and did I mention the photography if this is beautiful? Yeah. I've rarely seen such pretty [...]
I read a lot of cookbooks and normally I don't review them here, but this one was so beautiful and drool-inducing I had to share! Clear instructions for jams that are made without commercial pectin, plus simple instructions for canning vegetables, making pickles, and fermenting foods such as sauerkraut and kimchee. There are also recipes that use the canned foods, from cakes and pies to main dishes and cocktails. Top it off with stunning photographs. I literally read this book from beginning to [...]
Excellent book for the canning enthusiast, from seasoned pro to absolute beginner. I've been a home canner since my late 20's and frequently helped family canning efforts in my childhood, so most of the how-to info was nothing new to me, but the recipes are fabulous. Most helpful aspect of the book is its organization - recipes are grouped by season and subdivided into fruit or vegetable recipes. Clever. Knowing what is in season should help to minimize cost if you aren't growing your own fruits [...]
*I received an e-ARC through NetGalley, thanks to the Publishers and author, in exchange for a free and honest review!*A very nicely done book with many different kinds of recipes all around Canning -as the title would suggest. It has many helpful tips and good recipes to follow along, especially for beginnings this book will be wonderful!I also really loved the helpful Sources and Further reading index provided at the end of the book for where to get some of the things used in the book and wher [...]
I love this book. I have wanted to can for a long time, and my partner got me a kit and this book for Christmas. It's the perfect guide for me. It made me feel comfortable enough to just jump in, but more importantly, it uses natural sources of pectin, has interesting recipes, and is more concerned about flavor than a perfect look. Just my kind of cooking! I've made the classic peach jam, the plum cardamom jam, and am planning on making the charred tomato salsa soon.
If you're interested in learning to can or just want a couple simple, but yummy, recipes to try, this is the book for you. The instructions are simple and straight-forward. The author takes a light-hearted approach to canning making a newbies first attempt fun and enjoyable, instead of a nerve-wracking experience. Give it go and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Fantastic book. My first book on canning (accidentally) and it got me fired up about storing food with new and exciting flavors! Her fresh contemporary approach (as advertised) is very easy to identify with and highly approachable. This one will always be a favorite!
My husband gave me this book as a birthday present. I have a few canning/preserving books and didn't think I needed another one, and am happy that I now own this one! The narratives are fun to read, and I have bookmarked many recipes for future use. I'll update when I have tried them.
A beautiful, inspiring book with great-sounding recipes for both canned products and foods with those products. I got this from the library but may have to get a copy for myself so I can try out some of what's included in here. Accessible-sounding recipes for a newbie.
Really have to stop checking out cookbooks from the library, as now I want to try my hand at canning. The author does a great job of taking the mystery out of canning. Plus includes a lot of fabulous recipes to try.
This book completely changed the way I viewed canning and preserving. Not only does it make canning accessible for the home cook, but it brings interesting and exciting flavors to the home
this is the rare book that i'll actually buy after borrowing it from the library. it even has a recipe for clotted cream! :D
This book takes all the practicalities of canning and adds some modern twists with several interesting recipes and beautiful photography. Of course I am partial because the author is my friend.
I have no shame.
Some really neat-looking recipes in here; lots of interesting jams and jellies and pickles. Seems pretty straight-forward and not too intimidating a process to try.
I received this book as an advance reader copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review.I’ve never properly canned anything, although I go through at least a dozen pint Ball jars each year with my homemade liqueur production. The closest I’ve come to properly canning something was when I put homemade maraschino cherries and their hot syrup in sterile pint Ball jars, and the lids self-sealed as the syrup cooled. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to be approved for this book because i [...]
2.5 stars. 2010 edition, I picked up the original but would like to see the revised of this book. I was taken aback by the remark she made she first entertained getting into canning and doing research, "that public libraries are the domain of old folks and cranks-though not separatists so much", (look up the definition of a separatist), that really set me off because that is where this copy came from and not at all what I experience at my library. Get the cookbook at the library, read it, if you [...]
A beautifully photographed, very well sorted guide for a new generation of canners. If like me you associate canning with days of epic labor and shelves of dozens of tomatoes, then this is for you. Mastering small batch canning is fun, and the many fresh recipes here will inspire.
Recently I've begun making pickles using lactic fermentation, so was interested in this book when it became available on NetGalley for review. It turns out that it isn't really about that type of pickling, but the recipes for jellies, jams, and different types of pickles sounded delicious. I didn't own a pot large enough for hot water canning, so didn't make larger recipes and focused on those that didn't require processing. However, I was pleased that each recipe using hot water canning include [...]
