People have been preserving food since ancient times. 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.
