Seasonal Canning in Small BitesMarisa McClellan was an adult in a high-rise in Philadelphia when she rediscovered canning, and found herself under the preserving spell. 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.
Nothing says “cozy” like a rustic kitchen strung with dried garlic and herbs, while jars of handmade jelly sit on the counter waiting to be slathered onto freshly baked bread. Enjoy the bountiful produce picked straight from your backyard garden year-round with these simple yet satisfying home-preserving techniques. From canning, drying, and pickling in autumn to curing and cold storage after the frost comes, you’ll soon be a master at outwitting nature’s growing rhythms.
