Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry by Liana Krissoff

Check out this new book on canning, written by author Liana Krissoff and photographed by artist Rinne Allen, both Athenians. The book will not be released until August 1st and from what I hear from Rinne it is going to be pretty rockin. Click here to pre-order.

Here is the editorial review from

"“When I was growing up canning was for old folks and cranks and separatists,” writes Liana Krissoff in her introduction to Canning for a New Generation. But not anymore. With soaring food prices and the increasing popularity of all things domestic and DIY, there’s never been a better time to revisit the centuries-old techniques of preserving food at home.

This hip, modern handbook is filled with fresh and new ways to preserve nature’s bounty throughout the year. Organized by season and illustrated with beautiful photographs, it offers detailed instructions and recipes for making more than 150 canned, pickled, dried, and frozen foods, as well as 50 inventive recipes for dishes using these foods. Basic information on canning techniques and lively sidebars round out this refreshing take on a classic cooking tradition."
