The Pickled Pantry by Andrea Chesman #Book #Review

It's that time of year.... It's canning season! Did you plant a garden this year or head to a pick your own? We usually plant a small garden of tomatoes and a few other things but this year we decided not too. Okay maybe it really wasn't a decision that we thoughtfully made it was maybe that our life was a bit crazy busy.

If you are new to pickling or even experienced but would like to try out some new recipes The Pickled Pantry is a great place to start. This book was written by Andrea Chesman and includes not only recipes but a wealth of information on equipment, ingredients that are used to pickle - spices etc, produce math - this one I love as it tells you produce - weight - Approximate quantity and how much it yields. 

Blurb from Thomas Allen & Son website: 
"You Can Pickle It!

Why limit yourself to cucumbers when pickling brings out the best in so many vegetables and fruits? Andrea Chesman offers dozens of zesty possibilities in The Pickled Pantry, a comprehensive guide to pickling that features recipes for the crisp cucumbers you've always loved---dills, half-sours, bread and butters---plus delicious ideas for pickling everything from carrots to rhubarb, cabbage to pineapple.

It doesn't matter whether you have a few fresh-picked cucumbers or ten pounds of beets. Single-jar recipes, big-harvest ideas, relishes, chutneys, fermented pickles and krauts, and freezer and refrigerator variations provide pickling solutions for every situation. And once your pantry is fully stocked, Chesman provides recipes for 36 delicious ways to use your pickles in prepared dishes.

150 recipes to try out! I love that it is sectioned off into great groups making it easy to find a recipe for your needs.

1 All About Pickling
2 Fermented Pickles
3 Single Jar Pickles
4 Big-Harvest Fresh-Pack Pickles
5 Salsas, Relishes, Chutneys

The recipes contain ingredients you can find in your local grocery store or health food store (spices)  to make some very tasty foods to fill your fridge or pantry. I also love the kitchen notes, profiles and tidbits throughout the book. The directions are very straight forward and written for anyone new to pickling or cooking. It is definitely a great addition to my cookbook library which I hope to use plenty over the years to come.
