Wisdom for Home Preservers : 500 Tips for All Kinds of Food Preservation Hardback
by Robin Ripley
People have been preserving food since ancient times-evidence shows that Middle Eastern cultures were using the heat of the sun to dry their foods as early as 12,000 BC-for reasons of survival or culture or both.
Fast forward to the present day, and preserving our food-perhaps homegrown, seasonal, local, organic, or free-range-is an essential and enjoyable part of a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.
The ideal companion for dabblers, foodies, and anyone interested in having a closer relationship with what they eat, Wisdom for Home Preservers is a friendly, informative guiding hand to the whole range of traditional food-preservation techniques: drying, freezing, jam- and jelly-making, pickling, canning, salting and fermenting, curing, and smoking, plus storing and troubleshooting too.
