I Want the Tear-Off Labels (BBB)


Continuing with my little series of BBBs that are not BBBs to showcase other great canning literature, here’s one that caught my eye: Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry by Liana Krisoff. I like that this book is arranged seasonally, which is handy when you’re looking for recipes you can use right now for what’s coming out of your garden or available at the farmers market. There are plenty of recipes–including recipes for using your home-canned foods–and also a good section on canning basics plus some cute tear-off jar labels. It’s a fresh and approachable canning guide. Maybe the one for you?

Note: You can let me know you want it, or you can still just put (BBB) in your comment–but remember it’s actually a copy of Canning for a New Generation that the winner will receive. If you miss the update with the winner, I’m also still listing these on the BBB Winners List page, so check for your name there.

    This is exactly what I need and want. I’ve been working to teach my grown children, daughter and son and his wife how important it is to learn how to can. They’ve gotten much more interested as time has gone along and I’m absolutely sure this would be a huge incentive to them. I feel like things I can sitting on the shelf are like treasures–fulfilling to have food I’ve prepared and satisfying to the heart for what those colorful jars of food represent, my love for my family and friends. Thanks!

    Thanks, Suzanne, for introducing fresh new books to us. This one looks logical, and there’s a lot to be said for that. I often discover a recipe only to realize I have to wait six months for the next crop. It’s useful to plan along seasonal lines. BBB, please.
