Here it is, folks! A preview for my book "Canning & Preserving: All You Need to Know to Make Jams, Jellies, Pickles, Chutneys & More." I had the immensely good fortune of working with a truly talented team, from my editor, copyeditor, proofreader, creative director, photographer, graphic designer, and beyond. The book is a gem, and I'm not saying that merely because I wrote it. It's exactly the sort of book I would've liked to have had in hand when I first fired up the canner.
I've posted below the official description of the book. It is available now for pre-order and will released April 2010, along with "Keeping Chickens: All You Need to Know to Care for a Happy, Healthy Flock" (look here for a preview of that book next week). Both books are part of my "Homemade Living" series, and will be followed up with "Home Dairy" and "Keeping Bees" in April 2011. The first two books can be pre-ordered now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's Books, and through your local independent book store, via Indiebound.
I hope that you enjoy reading, and learning, from them as much as I enjoyed penning them. Cheers!
