Go ahead and spread this on everything.

DIY canning, pickling and fermenting is easy with food preservation and foraging expert Leda Meredith’s latest book, Preserving Everything. Whether you’re looking to store the last of your garden vegetables for the winter or simply craving a hearty stick of pork jerky, Meredith’s techniques are time-tested and simple enough for the home cook to master.
