American Farmers Almanac


Product Details

Pop open a jar of strawberry preserves in the middle of winter and the aroma will transport you back to the warm, sunny days of summer. For me, being able to top my morning toast, oatmeal or yogurt with exquisite homemade preserves is a not-insignificant source of joy. And there’s no better time than now to give canning a try. Whether made for gift-giving or for your own table, homemade pickles and preserves capture more than just the harvest. A sparkling jar of Blueberry Lime Jam recalls special moments spent picking berries with family. Bourbon Peaches and Bourbon Peach Mop Sauce (page 76) are memories of a stop at a roadside farm stand on the drive back from the beach.
