Krissoff gives lots of helpful hints throughout the book and really clearly explains how canning works. The way she writes reminds me of an old friend casually teaching me how to preserve.
Unlike most canning books, the author includes complete directions, from preparation through processing, for each recipe. This prevents the reader from having to flip back to earlier in the book for instructions on how to process the jars.
As far as I can tell, the recipes in this book only use boiling water bath canning (no pressure canning). There are also helpful recipes that give suggestions on how to use some of the preserves.
This book contains some basic recipes (Classic Strawberry Preserves, Classic Cucumber Relish), but where this book really shines is in the inventive, creative recipes that deviate from the standard found in so many other books. There are foods from various cultures represented (Sushi Ginger, Vietnamese Do Chua, Middle Eastern Pickled Turnips), as well as spins on old classics (Meyer Lemon and Rose Petal Marmalade). I also appreciate the section at the end on "Baked and creamy things to put preserves on", since I'll need some way to eat all of the jam that I'll be making!
If you've been preserving for a while and are tired of making the same old recipes, definitely give this book a try! If you're a beginner like me, I'd suggest this book, but you'll probably also want to pick up a book of the basics, like the Bernardin Complete Book of Home Preserving.
