“Vinton appeals to the new food hipster by providing basic information and recipes for a variety of likely concoctions. She excels at boiling down information into easy prose, providing the reasons why certain steps are important, and anticipating the questions that a beginner might have. Her emphasis is on making food preservation possible and fun, with no fancy ingredients and few single-use gadgets.”

I love this book! Bought it on a trip out of town and ready it in the hotel, on the train and in the cab home. Like many, I have recently discovered the time-honored tradition and skills of canning and preserving and I love how this book updates the process for a modern audience. I've already made 2 recipes from the book and both I love so I plan on preserving more of this summer's farmers market bounty thanks to Put 'em Up! I highly recommend this book!

I love this book! I have been canning for a few years now and was looking for a book with some new ideas. This book is great and has lots of interesting recipes...I can't wait to try the rhubarb jelly this spring! Sherri uses Pomona's pectin for quite a few recipes; it can be hard to find this product except for in specialty stores but it's worth the effort. I love this pectin because you can regulate the amount of sugar that goes into the final product and I love that the book uses it in quite a few cases. There are also quite a few recipes for berry vinegar, liqueurs, etc. that are great to keep or give away. All in all, a great book with lots of fresh ideas for me.

Format: Paperback
This has lots of new spins on commonly preserved produce. Not only will you find a recipe for Watermelon Liqueur (which is divine) but you'll also find Watermelon Granita, Pickled Watermelon Rind, Watermelon Jelly and Watermelon Agua Fresca. Similar recipes for apples, asparagus, beans, beets, berries, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrots, cauliflower, cherries, chilies, citrus, corn, cucumbers, fennel, figs, garlic,grapes, herbs, mushrooms, onions, peaches, pears, plums, radishes, ramps and scapes, rhubarb, strawberries, summer squash and zucchini, sweet peppers, tomatillos and green tomatoes, and tomatoes.

This book is perfect if you get a ton of the same kind of produce, and want to preserve it, without repeating your recipes too many times. It is organized into chapters, each one featuring one kind of produce. If you're like me, and have been preserving for several years, the same old recipes sometimes just don't cut it like they used to. This is a good jumping-off point for getting into adding herbs and extracts into your strawberry jam. This is also a good book for the beginner, just be prepared to have a lot of choices.

There are also several recipes featuring a low or no sugar pectin called Pomona's Pectin, which is a god-send. Regular jam/jelly recipes generally call for 1 cup fruit, 2 cups sugar. Pomona's does not need any sugar added, so you're getting a more flavourful and healthy preserve.
