Popular food blogger Marisa McClellan takes you through all manner of food in jars, storing away the tastes of all seasons for later. Basics like jams and jellies are accompanied by pickles, chutneys, conserves, whole fruit, tomato sauces, salsas, marmalades, nut butters, seasonings, and more. Small batches make them easy projects for a canning novice to tackle, and the flavors of vanilla bean, sage, and pepper will keep more experienced jammers coming back for more. Sample some Apricot Jam and Rhubarb Syrup in the spring, and then try your hand at Blueberry Butter and Peach Salsa in the summe.

What an amazing cookbook! Love the pictures, her little write-ups, and the recipes are easy to follow. This is one to buy and use each year. (or all year!) Loved it!

Easy to follow and delicious recipes. Especially nice for beginning caners who may just want to try out small batches or don't know where to start. The illustrations and personal anecdotes added a special touch that left me flipping through the pages just for fun.

I love this book and may have to finally purchase if after checking it out from the library several times.

The peach, plum, ginger jam is amazing! My family also enjoys the convenience of making our our beer bread mixes and cake mixes rather than purchasing them. The recipes in the book inspired us to look at some of our other favorite baked goods to see if they'd lend themselves to being pre-mixed in jars as well.

This book is a great single resource canning/jamming book for someone that doesn't have any recipe books at home. I'm an avid jam maker/canner and have a few resources on my shelves. If I didn't have so many books already I would snap this one up. I especially loved the tomato jam (yum!). Other recipes that aren't that common - pickled lemony cauliflower and pickled pears. A great book overall!
