This is a comprehensive guide to everything you ever wanted to know about the different types of preserving. It even has a few interesting recipes thrown in.
I am mildly interested in the concept of preserving. In India, at least the places I am from, preserving usually means sun dehydrating and pickling using oil, salt, and other spices ( not that I have personal experience, much to my chagrin). This was a good way for me to learn about the preservation techniques of places with a lot less sun.
The format is very straightforward. The book is divided by the types of procedures, and then within the larger heading, the author answers questions. The questions range from simple (which made sense to even beginners like me) to the more complex for people who encounter some hassles while trying to carry out the practices at home.
I am not someone who intends to work on most of the things mentioned in the book, but I still enjoyed it solely for the information provided and the manner in which the author has maintained an upbeat but serious tone throughout the book with casual asides sometimes.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
