"Canning for a New Generation"


In the spirit of the upcoming Yes We Can! event, I thought I'd share my new favorite canning book; Canning for a New Generation by Liana Krissoff with photography by Rinne Allen. These two ladies from Athens, GA know how to can it. The book is organized seasonally (my favorite way) with a nice introduction that takes you through the basics. Or if you already have some canning experience, you can jump right into cardamom plum jam, hot pickled okra and tomato and cashew chutney (!) Also, many of the canning recipes are followed by other exciting recipes in which to incorporate your newly canned goods. Oh, and if all that hadn't already won me over, there is a a recipe for "The Perfect Sidecar" finished with Brandied Sweet Cherries, um... yes please.

So, for now I plan on starting with Red Onion Marmalade with the canning swap in mind... okay spreading it on slices of crusty bread layered with a slab of aged cheddar is not bad for inspiration too. Come on, yes you can!
