Preserving food is hot! The local food movement gains even more popularity as consumers return to vegetable gardening to grow their own food. They increasingly have become interested in the techniques for “putting up” their bounty. Driven by the recession; the need for healthier, chemical-free food,and taste, people everywhere are preserving the abundance of fruits, vegetables, and herbs harvested from their garden (or someone else’s). You don’t even have to grow your own to preserve freshness; non-gardeners too are learning to preserve with locally grown produce bought from local markets. Targeted at anyone who wants to capture the flavor of freshness, whether it’s from making tomato sauce, drying herbs, or preserving jams and jellies.

Yes, You Can! And Freeze and Dry It, Too celebrates the idea of having a vital, hands-on relationship with food! If you're already growing your own fruits and vegetables, preserving some of what you grow extends enjoyment of your kitchen garden through the entire year. If you shop at farm markets, farm stands, and growers' markets, you may sometimes score large quantity discounts or find dead-ripe fruits on sale. Take advantage of these opportunities by learning how to preserve produce for long-term storage.
I wanted Yes, You Can! to give the feeling of having a friend visit in your kitchen to guide you through the fundamentals of food-preservation. Equally important: I wanted the book not to be dry and gray. It is full of stories and tips that both digress from the main discussion and add to it. It is also full of photographs I created to show the projects in-progress; there are many step-by-step sections that include color photos so you can see exactly how to proceed.
I hope you'll take Yes, You Can! for a spin. Also, please find me on Twitter (@cityslipper) and Facebook (the Yes, You Can! has its own page) and let me know how your projects work out. Have fun in the kitchen!
