A new book at the library


I often stop by the new acquisition area at the library to check out recent arrivals. The last time I stopped by I found a book called Put 'em Up! Fruit A Preserving Guide & Cookbook by Sherri Brooks Vinton.

The book is divided into sections by type of fruit and has many good ideas for preserving various types of fruits and then has recipes for utilizing the things you have preserved. There are recipes for jams, conserves, jellies, vinegars, syrups, gastriques, shrubs, cordials, and many other items.

The beginning of the book has a wealth of information about preparing fruits for canning and freezing with lots of clear pictures of the equipment needed and the techniques used for common types of food preservation. This would be a wonderful resource for someone who would like to begin canning fruits and jams.

I'm hoping to try a few of the recipes and ideas presented in the book with some of the berries from our garden. I'll try to keep you posted on the results. 🙂

    Hi Becka, I just checked our library online, and yes, they do have it. It’s available, and I put it on hold. Thanks for the suggestion!
