Carol Hupping Stormer Presents: Stocking up-How to Preserve the Food You Grow Naturally

Overview: Gardening seems to be making a big comeback. Let’s just blame Youtube for that one. But, how do you make the most out of what you grow? Let’s face it, there’s only so many ways you can use fresh produce. So how about preserving it for later?

Story Telling: This is a reference book.

Dislikes: There are a couple of things that bother me about this book. For starters, we shifted to preservation with white sugar, because honey doesn’t have a consistency needed to preserve many jams or fruit preserves.

And two, unless something has gone seriously wrong with your recipe–including not processing it long enough–then you shouldn’t be having enough jars failing to worry about reprocessing the jars.

Likes: There are several good recipes and tips. For the most part, the authors seem to prefer freezing to all other forms of preservation.

Conclusion: This is an interesting reference book. But, always have a second witness to all the recipes first.
