This creative cookbook will inspire you to not only preserve summer’s fruit harvest, but use your homemade jams, jellies, and conserves in a host of sweet and savory dishes. Whip up a batch of peach jam and marinate shrimp kabobs in it overnight, or suspend grapefruit in lavender honey for an enticing custard topping. The flavors are fresh and contemporary and the instructions are thorough and easy to follow. Putting up — and serving up — the harvest has never been so delicious.

Praise For…

Vinton (Put ’em Up!) offers another collection of preserving recipes, this time focused on fruit. The author here reviews various types of preserves, water-bath canning, and troubleshooting techniques, providing clear and concise advice. Vinton expands beyond basic jellies and jams to include conserves, curds, gastriques, and more; each preserve recipe is accompanied by complementary recipes for meals, such as Sticky Chicken Legs (with Quick Apricot Jam), Duck Moo Shu (with Five-Spice Plum Sauce), and Momma’s Manhattan (with Maraschino Cherries). The author emphasizes that preserves can be interchanged in the recipes to give readers a wide breadth of choices and tastes. Verdict This bright collection of paired recipes will serve as a stepping-stone for those who are interested in learning to preserve but who want guidance for using what they make. A great companion to Vinton’s first cookbook.
