Discover seven different ways to preserve "from nose to tail" in this beautiful and informative guide from superstar bloggers Joel MacCharles and Dana Harrison. For anyone who wants to cut down on waste and feel more connected to what they eat, Batch opens up a new world of cooking, growing, and of course, preserving. When Joel and Dana, the creators of WellPreserved.ca, first started cooking and blogging, they didn't set out to try and change their relationship with food (or build a pantry containing almost 1,000 jars!). But as they began to see the benefits of cooking local food that was in-season, and preserving it for future use, they realized that they wanted to become part of a larger conversation on how to make good food accessible--regardless of time, budget or kitchen size. They started thinking of ways to preserve ingredients "from nose to tail"--using as much as possible from their ingredients, and thinking of different methods that would highlight each element. In Batch, their first cookbook, Joel and Dana showcase seven different preserving techniques--canning, pressure canning, dehydrating, fermenting, cellaring, curing and infusing--and then take readers on a trip to the market in twenty-five ingredients. From spring asparagus to summer peaches, blueberries and raspberries; hearty beans, cabbage and chilies in fall and winter to a variety of meat and fish, Batch teaches you everything you need to know to get the most out of your ingredients and your kitchen. With their signature approachable and fun style, Joel and Dana share how preserving has shaped their lives and their sense of community, explain how to make two preserves at once, and serve up mouthwatering, full-plate recipes that pair perfectly with your homemade preserves--so that your products fill your plate and not your cupboard. With personal anecdotes, creative and incredible recipes, brilliant photography and gorgeous illustrations, Joel and Dana demonstrate how to incorporate preserving into your own kitchen and community. This is not your grandma's jam book.
