2.0 out of 5 stars no better than your standard recipe book, 9 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Store Your Garden Produce: The Key to Self-sufficiency (Paperback)
There are only 20 pages of methods such as drying, smoking, fermenting, etc. Few descriptions go into enough detail that I would feel confident about trying them. You still need other books which cover the details of these processes. The rest of the book has recipes but a lot of them again fail to be specific enough for you to actually make a particular jam or chutney etc. You're better off with a dedicated preserves cookbook.

Thank you Pete. This is the sort of analysis that is really helpful as other books I have bought are, as you say, cover recipies instead of methods of preserving.

Still need a good 'preserving garden produce' and information on preserving foods generally - anyone have an answer?

When Pete says "You're better off with a dedicated preserves cookbook." that's fine if you want recipes for preserving - but that's not what this book is! As described it is a reference book for methods to store your garden produce - with plenty of detail - add a little common sense and thousands have found this all they need.

I completely agree - nothing terribly helpful on methods really. I'm so glad I borrowed this from the library rather than buying it.
