9780670377152: Home Preserving Made Easy

The bounty of the earth provides us with sustenance, beauty, and enjoyment. Yet our productive farmlands have been a mixed blessing as well--whether of quantity--sometimes giving too much and other times too little; or of quality, sometimes sacrificing taste for convenience in shipping; or of cost, nearly always too high. In recent years many of us have sought answers to those problems by growing and preparing our own food supplies or by stocking up on supermarket specials as a hedge against rising prices. But dealing with 50# of meat and a bushel of tomatoes can be impractical if not impossible when the freezer is already filled to overflowing. The freezer itself, while often the easiest if not the best place to preserve and store certain foods, is not the only solution, especially in these days of occasional power failures and rising energy costs.Readers will be surprised and delighted to know that far cheaper and often more efficient methods and materials for food storage and preservation are readily available--vinegar, oil, sugar, alcohol, charcoal, salt, and that good old \"cool, dark place,\" to name just a few. HOME PRESERVING MADE EASY is a complete compendium of useful information on every aspect of preserving, including unusual as well as standard methods and recipe ideas, the result of generations of testing drawn from the authors' extensive experience and research into old American and European traditions. Each method is explained in simple terms for use in the average kitchen (with special space-saving hints for apartment dwellers). Also included are basic instructions for making and keeping cheeses, wines, liqueurs, sausages, and other products easily, cheaply, and pleasantly made at home.
