How many ways can you preserve a strawberry? You can freeze it, dry it, pickle it, or can it. Milk gets cultured, or fermented, and is preserved as cheese or yogurt. Fish can be smoked, salted, dehydrated, and preserved in oil. Pork becomes jerky. Cucumbers become pickles. There is no end to the magic of food preservation, and in Preserving Everything, Leda Meredith leads readers--both newbies and old hands--in every sort of preservation technique imaginable.

While the author is quite creative, there are several instances where she does not follow best practices in preserving.

Unlike many books on single-topic methods of food preservation, "Preserving Everything" offers pointers and advice on dehydrating, canning, culturing, salting and smoking and even includes a set of guidelines on freezing dozens of foods. Each chapter provides serious instruction on ensuring food safety and then presents a range of recipes that readers can tackle as they gain confidence in various preserving methods.

As well as instructive, Meredith's book is beautiful, well-organized and vividly photographed. She teaches the essentials, helps readers understand WHY the basic techniques work and encourages creativity. Every idea from cheese-making to dehydrator jerky sounds amazing, making this an essential book for anyone interested in food preservation.
