As a Christmas gift to myself, I picked up a copy of “Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry” by Liana Krissoff. This is a great tutorial on the basics of canning from all aspects; she revisit the centuries-old techniques of preserving food at home then provides new ways to preserve the same foods. She offers over 150 recipes (organized by seasons) for pickled, dried, canned and frozen foods. The recipes are illustrated with great photographs (for those of us who are inspired by pictures) and another neat aspect of the book is that the author includes recipes for how to use your now preserved foods. To sum this all up . . . I highly recommend this book and I am looking forward to making more recipes from it!
The first recipe tried from this phenomenal resource: Mango Lime Jam
