Blue Ribbon Preserves: Secrets to Award-Winning Jams, Jellies, Marmalades and Moreby Linda J. AmendtHP Trade
If you've been laboring under the illusion that your grandmother just smashed berries into a jar or that pickles grew on exotic pickle trees, prepare to be enlightened with Linda J. Amendt's Blue Ribbon Preserves: Secrets to Award-Winning Jams, Jellies, Marmalades & More. Canning, as shown in this exhaustive edition, is as much a science as an art, and this book includes every detail to educate the uninformed on what it takes to make great preserves.
Her recipes include the standards, such as strawberry jam, and the obscure, such as Garlic and Onion Jam. Amendt also does the public service of explaining the real difference between jams and jellies. Special caution about food safety holds a prominent place in Blue Ribbon Preserves and Amendt teaches us how to chose optimal foods for canning as well as how to safely store preserves to avoid potentially lethal food contamination. Be prepared for a bit of a chemistry lesson, which can be a long and sometimes didactic read, but it's well worth it for the critical food-safety information.
So complete is the book that Amendt, herself a recipient of countless state-fair awards for her preserves, includes pointers on how to succeed at such competitions (in a very thorough chapter which includes insights into how judges pick their winners). Blue Ribbon Preserves covers everything that goes into a ball jar and more, and in the process earns not only a tight seal of quality but its own blue ribbon. --Teresa Simanton
Pickled: Vegetables, Fruits, Roots, More--Preserving a World of Tastes and Traditionsby Lucy NorrisStewart, Tabori and Chang
With the wide array of pickles already available on grocery store shelves, why would anyone bother with a preservation method most associated with our grandmothers? Simple: "Homemade pickles taste better!" In Pickled, author Lucy Norris collects more than 80 recipes of astonishing variety - simple to complex, some of which are ready to eat within 24 hours. And the recipe titles are as inviting as the stories that accompany them: Japanese Dragon Cucumber, Full Moon Cabbage with Pomegranate Juice, Smashed Radish, Green Mango Chit-chi-rias, and Good Mother's Salty Duck Egg. Asian pickles and Indian chutneys are found here, along with traditional American chow-chow and bread-and-butter pickles. Sprinkled throughout are the family stories and historical photos behind each recipe. With the continued proliferation of home vegetable gardens and local farmer's markets, a whole new generation is faced with the question of what to do with a bumper crop of cucumbers...or green beans...or carrots...or cabbage. Lucy Norris offers a tried and true selection of recipes perfect for beginning new family traditions.
With even a casual reading of Lucy Norris's Pickled you will never again look the same way at cucumbers or cabbage. Or okra, or jalapeños, or eggplant for that matter. Welcome to the world of pickles and pickling. And, as Norris so ably demonstrates, it is one big world. She introduces Pickled with a bit of history and a lot of technique. This being a food preservation technology and all, it pays to be attentive up front here to working safely. Her chapters then break down as "Cucumbers"; "Cabbage and Other Leafy Greens"; "Root Vegetables, Eggplant, Tomatoes, Mushrooms and More"; "Mixed Vegetables"; "Fruit"; "Meat, Poultry, and Eggs"; "Seafood and Fish." For those who think pickles begin and end with kosher pickle spears, Norris opens the door to such delights as Shiozuke (Salt-Cured Japanese Cucumbers), or O-I Kimchi (Stuffed Cucumber Kimchi). And beyond the boundaries of the cucumber: Hot and Sour Pickled Cabbage, Pickled Ginger, Beguner Achar (Eggplant Pickle), Tomato Chutney, Romanian Pickled Peppers, and Green Mango Pickle. And that isn't even scratching the surface.
What truly comes clear is that pickling is not a difficult technology. With Norris's help and guidance you can give yourself permission to invent your very own pickling tradition, then fill the shelves of your pantry with unimaginably delicious treats, little surprises to pull out and bring to the table. Pickled truly is all about preserving a world of tastes and traditions. --Schuyler Ingle

The Joy of Pickling: 250 Flavor-Packed Recipes for Vegetables for All Kinds of Produce from Garden or Marketby Linda ZiedrichHarvard Common Press
Pickling food seems like a form of culinary alchemy to most of us. Or we recall it as something grandmothers used to do, laboring over heaps of vegetables and huge, steaming kettles to turn out jars of jewel-like pickles and piquant chutneys.
In the first chapter of The Joy of Pickling, Linda Ziedrich demystifies the pickling process. She explains the difference between fresh pickles made with vinegar and longer-keeping, salt-preserved, fermented pickles. Her detailed explanation of canning methods, including low-temperature pasteurization, shows how to avoid risky problems.
After reading the opening of this pickle primer, go straight to the "Quick" and "Freezer Pickle" chapters and discover how easy it is to make Green Olives with Lemon and Thyme and Freezer Dill Slices without any sterilizing, boiling, or safety issues. In addition, you get to enjoy them within 24 hours. When you are more confident, let Ziedrich guide you through pickling Spicy Broccoli, Pig Ears, Korean Kimchi, and Irish Corned Beef. Her three recipes for pickled eggs are also bound to please. --Dana Jacobi
