From Library Staff

The traditional practice of putting food by is an art that has been reviving across the country. You might discover that you love your own pickles better than the ones from the grocery store, and will likely have more fun too.

Comprehensive encyclopedia of home preserving. My old paperback copy is worn to tatters, so I'm glad to see this book is still in print. I especially like the detailed descriptions of certain processes, and why they are recommended or essential for preserving food properly.
