A Cook's Guide to Home Canning, Pickling, and Preserving by Kevin West (Hardcover—2013)
Strawberry jam. Pickled beets. Homegrown tomatoes. These are the tastes of Kevin West’s Southern childhood, and they are the tastes that inspired him to “save the season,” as he traveled from the citrus groves of Southern California to the cranberry bogs of Massachusetts and everywhere in between, chronicling America’s rich preserving traditions.
Here, West presents his findings: 220 recipes for sweet and savoury jams, pickles, cordials, cocktails, candies, and more; plus 300 full-colour photographs. From Classic Apricot Jam to Green Tomato Chutney, from Pickled Asparagus with Tarragon and Green Garlic to Scotch Marmalade, Saving the Season is the ultimate guide for cooks—from the novice to the professional—and the only book you need to save (and savour) the season throughout the entire year.
