Product Description

Review

Library Journal
“Everything about this book, from the attractive design chock-full of enticing pictures to the ingredients, demystifies the canning process and alleviates associated fears….VERDICT: This is an excellent introduction to preserving. The author keeps things simple by using accessible ingredients and small batches.”

Washington Post
“McClellan’s voice is friendly and reassuring; the batches are manageable. True to its name, this recipe collection covers territory beyond the ping of a sealed lid, such as salts, syrups, granolas, stocks and butters.”

Relish!
“When there’s too much of a good thing…that’s the time to can just a couple of jars of something wonderful with a recipe from Food in Jars.”  

Seattle Times
“I'm delighted that McClellan's Food in Jars blog is now a book… [it’s] not restricted to jams and pickles; it's also got everything from nut butters to salsas.”  

Sante
“A ‘must have’ for any amateur or professional chef serious about gardening, farm-to-table, organic, and going green.”

Bookslut
Food in Jars contains a terrific introductory section, complete with photos, that will get you set up correctly and safely with hot water bath canning, the most basic canning process. And since her focus is on putting up small batches, it's a good way to dip your toe in without having to worry about finding yourself overwhelmed by 100 pounds of tomatoes.”
 
Saveur
“We've long been fans of Marisa McClellan's blog Food in Jars, a two-time Best Food Blog Awards finalist dedicated to the joyful packing of anything and everything into lidded glass vessels: jams, pickles, salsas, chutneys, syrups. With her cookbook, the experience is even better: rich personal stories, useful tips for canning and storing, and smartly written, eminently approachable small-batch recipes leave us hard-pressed to find so much as a single fruit, vegetable, or herb that doesn't work beautifully in a jar.”

I ordered this book along with three other small-batch canning books and I LOVE IT!!! It will be one of my go-to books for sure. I only have one little thing to point out - there are a few references in the book that suggest to go to a certain page but instead of a page number it shows "000", I am pretty sure they meant to put a page number in, but someone somewhere in editing land missed it!! It certainly doesn't effect how great this book is. Marisa's instructions are fantastic and easy to follow. One other thing that I really like is that the book is written in a very unintimidating way - like she is chatting with you in your kitchen:) I would highly recommend this book for beginners and I think more intermediate canners would enjoy the author's twist on recipes. Also, I discovered her blog after I bought the book - great blog:)

Food in Jars is a great canning 'cookbook'. Many simple yet sometimes unique recipes for small batches of preserving using very common ingredients. So far everything I have tried has tasted great. I really appreciate the ability to make only a few jars at a time or to simply double the recipe for more depending on what it is.

I recently became interested in canning and wanted to do small batches. I rented all the books on small batch canning from my library and LOVED this book. I immediately wanted to make over 20 of the recipes and marked many many more for future years. The other books, including the Canning for the new generation, just did not have as many recipes that I was interested in.
I just got the book in the mail and cannot believe how beautiful it is. I can actually just sit here and go through the book over and over again. I LOVE this book and I cannot wait for her next one.

I stumbled on to Marisa McClellan's blog [...] by accident, and after testing out a few of her recipes I decided to take the plunge and buy her book. Love, love, LOVE this book. There are a few misprints here and there, but it didn't detract from how much I adore this book. This book was a lot of fun to read, and I adored McClellan's tone. Great recipes, great tips, great pictures.

I bought this book when I started canning and was a beginner when using it for the first time, and the first year I made over 140 jars!! The recipes are easy to follow and the pictures make you want to try the recipe. The general canning instructions are very approachable and take away your fear of jumping headfirst into canning. I was a little bit worried since I had never done it before, but with these step-by-step instructions with photos for further explanation, it made me confident that I could do it! And do it I did, and am still doing it! A great book that I highly recommend for the beginner as well as the more experienced canner!

I love this little book. I am used to preserving 20 to 30 jars of things at a time but now I find myself with too much of a good thing now that the kids have moved out. This book answers this problem! Now I have ideas for many different jars of neat stuff! A really good little resource.
