Do you relish the joys of hot toast spread with your own homemade butter and jam? Love to dazzle your friends with jars and tins of choice goodies–all created by you? The kitchen is a paradise for crafty cooks, and whether you’re a newcomer to the realm of amateur artisanal edibles or a seasoned food crafter on the prowl for your next batch of appetizing challenges, Jam It, Pickle It, CureIt has recipes galore for you (75, to be exact).

Projects range from perfect pantry staples (Butter, Crackers, Pasta) to festive giftables (Toasted Walnut Brandy, Lemon Curd, Peanut Butter Cups); some give quick gratification (Mayonnaise, Rumkirschen, Potato Chips), while others reward patience (Gravlax, Ricotta Salata, Kimchee). Practical prep-ahead and storage instructions accompany each recipe, several give variations (like Caramelized Onion and Thyme Butter–yum), and most share ideas on how to use it, serve it, and give it away.

Complete with color photographs and the accumulated wisdom of author Karen Solomon’s years of food crafting,Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It is your one-stop resource for turning your culinary inspiration into a pantry full of hand-labeled, better-than-store-bought creations

Love this book and it's companion ("Can It, etc.")! The recipes are soooo easy to follow you'll be making your own Kim Chee in no time! See that orange jar on the cover? Carrot jam. That's right! Maybe now you can get the kids to eat their "veggies."

A lovely book with many fun ideas. Want to make your own butter? Shake along! Beef jerky, marshmallows, flavoured brandy - you name it. Much more than just the jam and pickles I was expecting. The book is also nice to look at and would be a perfect gift for a foodie.
