The Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving takes the mystery out of home preserving so you can make the most of fresh fruits and vegetables as they become available throughout the year.
Few people have time for large preserving marathons that can take all day or more. Few too, want dozens of jars of the same flavor jam or jelly. The recipes in this book allow you to put up a few jars quickly and easily of whatever is fresh and available. Because these recipes require a minimum of time and fuss, you'll enjoy making the preserves almost as much as you will the eating of them.
Inside The Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving are recipes for delicious jams, jellies and marmalades with mouth-watering names like Sour Cherry Gooseberry Jam, Cherry Orange Freezer Jam, Microwave Winter Pear Lemon Jelly, Blueberry Freezer Jam with Cointreau, Mango Marmalade Amaretto Jam and Raspberry and Blueberry Jam.
But there's much more than just sweet spreads here. You'll find wonderful butters (Cranberry Maple Butter), unusual pickles (fire-roasted Sweet Red Peppers), piquant sauces (Asian Whisky Sauce), sassy salsas (Peach Mint Salsa), and choice chutneys (Hellfire Chutney). There is also a dazzling array of fruit butters, curds, conserves, pickles, relishes, salsas, chutneys, dips, pestos, sauces, specialty vinegars and oils and sweet low-sugar spreads. Recipes for microwave and freezer jams, baby food and recipes kids will enjoy making round out this must-have addition to your cookbook shelf.
