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.”

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 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 am a huge cookbook fan and love finding new books in this section at the library! I always borrow books before considering purchasing them, and it's so fun to find new and exciting recipes everywhere. Food in Jars did not disappoint!

First, read these recipe titles out loud.... They are drool-worthy!
*Chocolate Cake in a Jar
*Boozy Canned Peaches
*Vanilla Rhubarb Jam with Early Grey
*Apple Amond Honey Conserve

I am adding the above recipes to my canning binder and can't wait to try them! Is it bad to open a jar right away? :) While the fantastic recipes make Food in Jars a success, the beautiful layout and pages make it a delight to browse. Recipes include descriptions and history, and simple instructions for processing. With a great introduction to canning and recipes for small batches, this book is a great starter canning book as well. These recipes are generally "snazzier" than a general preserving cookbook. It's like gourmet canning!

This book has some great recipes and I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is getting into canning and wants to learn more. The author is extremely knowledgeable and explains things in a clear way that is understandable to even a novice canner. You should also get her second book, Preserving by the Pint

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.

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:)

Nice book. Simple and comprehensive (in a good way). Contains some nice flavour profiles. Great reference when you find yourself with smaller quantities of great produce for preserving.
