Giveaway - Win a Free Prize from Cook for Good
Win a copy of Pickles & Preserves by Andrea Weigl
This slim but potent Savor the South cookbook tells you just enough about putting food by to tempt but not to intimidate. News & Observer food writer Andrea Weigl shares classic Southern recipes such as the Copper Pennies my mother-in-law used to make (see Gammaw's Marinated Carrots) and Dilly Beans. She also includes modern recipes such as Pickled Ginger and Salt-Pickled Ginger with Shiso. You could spend a very pleasant and productive nine months working your way through this book, from Strawberry Freezer Jam and Strawberry-Rose Petal Jelly through Pickled Okra and Chowchow to Sauerkraut and Pickled Green Tomatoes.
Andrea shares the essential facts about food safety in a direct, no-nonsense way. Her recipes use techniques recommended by experts. No recipe calls for higher-risk pressure canning, animal products, or low-acid vegetables. Learn more about Andrea in her Cook for Good Hero profile.
