ISBN: 0-88266-650-9
201 pages.
$ 14.95
Enjoy your abundant harvest of garden-fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the year by following the simple, satisfying home-preserving techniques in Keeping the Harvest. A reliable, easy-to-use reference for thousands of gardeners and cooks since 1976, Keeping the Harvest is now completely updated to reflect the latest techniques, equipment, and USDA guidelines for home preserving in the 1990s. Now you can capture the goodness of “garden-fresh” and save money, too! A wide range of preserving techniques is covered to meet a variety of needs: freezing, canning, pressure canning, drying, pickling, curing, and making jams and jellies. Also included are new, quick methods such as microwave drying of herbs. And techniques are generously illustrated and clearly explained to ensure foolproof results. You’ll find dozens of fruits and vegetables listed A to Z with helpful recommendations for how they can best be preserved — from harvesting, to putting up, to storage. Reference charts, favorite recipes, and trouble-shooting tips are sprinkled throughout. And of course, safety, taste, and nutrition concerns are always emphasized. Chock full of time-saving ideas and palate-pleasing results, Keeping the Harvest is the one home-preserving guide you’ll want on your kitchen bookshelf.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
