From the Inside Flap:

There's so much more to preserving than just making jams and jellies. Take a look in your cupboards and you're bound to discover pickles and chutneys, oils and vinegars, and dried fruits. Open the refrigerator and you may find smoked fish and meat p?t?s. And don't forget the foods in the freezer. Wouldn't you like to make all these foods at home? Now you can!

Perfect Perserves is a guide to the many methods for preserving all kinds of foods—right in your kitchen. Hilaire Walden shares a personal passion and great enthusiasm for preserving as she demonstrates everything from the simplest raspberry jelly to how to create zesty dishes with salt-preserved lemons.

The first section covers ten preservation methods, offering master recipes and definitive instructions for each technique: drying; curing; pickling; making chutney and relishes; canning; crystalizing; making jams, jellies, and marmalades; smoking; potting; freezing; and making fruit cheeses, curds, and butters. The second section is devoted to a collection of great recipes for variations on the master recipes and using the preserves—from spiced tomato chutney, to oil-cured mushrooms, to orange and ginger marmalade. You'll also learn the best ways to preserve certain foods, including fruits, vegetables, seafood, and meats.
