By Ellie Topp and Margaret Howard. This is a great book that has over 300 delicious recipes for getting the most out of your harvest. Many times we only have small amounts of fruits and vegetables as they become available from our garden or local farmers markets throughout the year. Some recipes require as little as ten minutes of processing time making it perfect for using ingredients when they are at their peak season and lowest price. Ellie and Margaret guide you through the easiest and safest methods for making home-made preserves, syrups, flavored oils, pickles and chutneys without spending all day in the kitchen. A small yield gives the opportunity to make several different preserves and reduces the risk of scorching that is always a danger when cooking larger batches. Using fresh produce and a wide availability of fruits and vegetables you will be able to fill your pantry with an outstanding variety. Color photos give a nice finish to these delicious recipes.
