About Canning, Pickling and Freezing:
Preserving your own food is a fundamental part of a healthy lifestyle. Not only do you source produce from your garden, farmer's market, or local shop, you can also ensure the preparation is wholesome and the ingredients are pure. In this detailed guide, 1950s icon Irma Harding offers her firm guidance on how to properly prepare and preserve your own foods. The book explains how to preserve foods by canning, pickling, freezing, smoking and curing fresh vegetables and meats. Step-by-step techniques and tasty recipes from food artisans in Austin, Texas, Wisconsin, Michigan and other places are included. Along the way, Irma Harding provides her no-nonsense advice and some colorful images and a brief history of her checkered red cloth past. This colorful book delivers both the techniques and recipes necessary to keep their food local and fresh and the life path direct and true.
The speaking portion of this event is free and open to the public. All books signed at BookPeople events must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
