Description
Strawberry jam, Pickled beets, Homegrown tomatoes—these are the tastes of Kevin West's Southern childhood, and they are the tastes that inspired him to "save the season," as he traveled from the citrus groves of Southern California to the cranberry bogs of Massachusetts and everywhere in between, chronicling America's rich preserving traditions. In this beautifully produced and appropriately durable book, West presents 220 recipes for sweet and savory jams, pickles, cordials, cocktails, candies, and more, ranging from Classic Apricot Jam, Green Tomato Chutney, and Scotch Marmalade to Pickled Asparagus with Tarragon and Green Garlic, illuminated with 300 color photographs.

"This cookbook is unlike any other on my shelf. West approaches his topic—home canning and preserving—with a reporter's attention to detail and a poet's sensibility; it's less a canning tutorial and cookbook than it is a collection of absorbing personal essays, literary excerpts, explications of culinary history, and friendly advice, all of which happens to be punctuated by appealing, easy-to-follow recipes.... The text dances on, its cadence dictated by the season, and while there are more than enough spring and summer recipes to keep you busy every weekend from now through the end of August (I, for one, can't wait to make my own Maraschino cherries), West's engaging stories will probably have you reading ahead, looking forward to homemade pumpkin butter and blood orange marmalade."—Saveur.com
