Capture the Bounty of the Seasons, and Put It in a Jar, or a Can!

On sale this week is Preserving: The Canning and Freezing Guide for All Seasons by Pat Crocker. This beautiful book is dedicated to all-things canning, freezing, and jarring—it’s the only preserving book you’ll ever need. Its appealing design—with color photographs throughout—and its innovative content make this book a dream to browse through.

What sets this book apart?

  • It’s organized by fruits and vegetables in the season they peak, so it’s easy to focus on the season you’re in.
  • Pat Crocker tips you off to which varieties of fruits and vegetables you’ll have the best success with, so you’ll know what to ask for at the market, or to focus on growing in your own garden.
  • It’s all in here—from tomatoes, corn, and blueberries to more exotic produce like persimmons, ground cherries, and tomatillos!
  • Along with dozens of must-make recipes for preserves, Preserving offers a wide range of recipes using the preserves, including appetizers, soups, salads, side dishes, main courses, and desserts.
  • For herb lovers (and who isn’t an herb lover?!), Preserving lists and illustrates herbs by season and offers tips on using herbs in preserves.

    I make my own pancake mix from a ricpee from They have gluten free ricpees on their web site. I like them also because they have reviews from people who have tried the ricpees, including ways that they have tweaked them. I made the dry part of the mix and packed it in my checked luggage when I went to Arizona in March. When we stayed in a time-share, we had pancakes for breakfast. It doesn’t take long to make the dry mix especially if you make more than one batch.
