"Just when I thought I had all the preserving and canning books I needed here comes Sarah Marshall's new book Preservation Pantry. . . . It's the quintessential no-waste preserving book." -San Diego Foodstuff Waste not, want not. When it concerns fresh fruits and vegetables, Oregonian Marshall has the right idea: use every part of the ingredient possible to enhance and expand flavors exponentially. Peach stones appear in the eponymous peach-stone tonic. Pear peels and cores in lavender pear-peel pectin. And kumquat peels are also deposited in her liquid-gold vegetable stock. That's one of the differentiating features of this canning and preserving collection. Her initial water-bath canning lesson is explained in simple steps, accompanied by charming color-washed illustrations. The chopping chart and elevation chart get similar treatment. The 100-plus recipes truly bespeak the Northwest: carrot cumin slaw, haluski with blackened brussels sprouts, radicchio and arugula salad with strawberries, and drunken apple crumble. The final bonus: an end chapter on starting your own canning club, with some clever tips to keep it sustainable. This book makes it easy to take advantage of the seasons. -Booklist Starred Review
