Food Storage & Preservation Books
Too often, preserves are but a pale reflection of fresh foods. Luckily, this definitely is not the case with natural preserving techniques. Thanks to the nine main methods described in this book, we learn that almost any food can be preserved without nutrient loss. All of the recipes are effective, economical, and easy to do at home. Most of the methods (drying; lactic fermentation; and preserving in oil, salt, or vinegar, for example) issue from a long tradition that has been swept aside by a tidal wave of industrial canned and frozen foods. This tradition holds an immense but lately obscured wealth of gastronomic and nutritional value. Very often, these recipes go beyond merely preserving food: they transform it by enriching it with new flavors, and better than either freezing or sterilization usually can. We also discover that by using less sugar in jams and other sweet preserves, fruit retains its full flavor, without burdening us with additional calories. With 300 recipes describing how to preserve over one hundred kinds of food, this book restores our appetite for traditional preserves that truly are house specialties.

She grew accustomed to working in large batches since most vintage” recipes are written to feed a large family, or to use up a farm-size crop, but increasingly, found that smaller batches suited her life better. Working with a quart, a pound, a pint, or a bunch of produce, not a bushel, allows for dabbling in preserving without committing a whole shelf to storing a single type of jam.Preserving by the Pint is meant to be a guide for saving smaller batches from farmer's markets and produce standspreserving tricks for stopping time in a jar. McClellan's recipes offer tastes of unusual preserves like Blueberry Maple Jam, Mustardy Rhubarb Chutney, Sorrel Pesto, and Zucchini Bread and Butter Pickles. Organized seasonally, these pestos, sauces, mostardas, chutneys, butters, jams, jellies, and pickles are speedy, too: some take under an hour, leaving you more time to plan your next batch.

Why would you ever be without refrigeration? There are a lot of reasons why this could happen. It could be voluntary, such as moving to an off-grid property, or involuntary, such as the electric power grid going down due to a natural disaster or terrorist/war act. Perhaps your refrigerator will quit working at a time when you can’t afford to replace it, or maybe you want to lower your electric bills or reduce your impact on the planet. Whether it's voluntary or involuntary, it usually involves a lot of life changes or a lot of frantic work to preserve the food from a refrigerator or freezer. It's a good idea to have some back-up plans and information, just in case. Another in the collection of Ms. Gregersen's self-sufficiency books, this fills a niche by covering a subject where information is often lacking. Some readers will remember doing these things in the old days, or hearing their parents or grandparents talking about them and enjoy the trip down memory lane. The author's own broad experiences of living without refrigeration in several climates and locales help make this book an interesting read.
