    A lot of useless jabber only to find out it doesnt even cover pressure canning. How can this be a book on canning then?

    Suzanne

    This is an introduction to preserving. The history of different methods was interesting but the book has only a handful of recipes and as a result disappointing.

    Not a bad read for someone who has 0% experience (see:myself)

    I am grateful to Hatherleigh Press in sending me Backyard Farming: Home Harvesting by Kim Pezza in exchange for a review on goodreads and on my blog, www.differentkindofliving.wordpress.com. Home Harvesting is one book in her Backyard Farming series. Others include Raising Chickens, Raising Goats, and Keeping Honey Bees, all of which I am eager to one day read as well. Pezza begins Home Harvesting by giving the history of food preservation. Fermentation and drying were some of the first methods I am grateful to Hatherleigh Press in sending me Backyard Farming: Home Harvesting by Kim Pezza in exchange for a review on goodreads and on my blog, www.differentkindofliving.wordpress.com. Home Harvesting is one book in her Backyard Farming series. Others include Raising Chickens, Raising Goats, and Keeping Honey Bees, all of which I am eager to one day read as well. Pezza begins Home Harvesting by giving the history of food preservation. Fermentation and drying were some of the first methods used during ancient times. Now, in more recent times, people continue to preserve foods through those mentioned above and also others such as canning, freezing, curing, and smoking. Pezza then proceeds to help the reader determine which methods of preservation would be best for them to try based upon their resources, equipment, and what they want to preserve. She does into great detail for each method, including supplies needed, instructions of preserving, and how to and how long to store the preserved food afterwards. The last section of the book includes helpful recipes for various preservation methods. I was surprised to learn about how certain preservation techniques came about. Who knew that Napoleon Bonaparte had an influence in the development of canning? I certainly did not! Apart from the history of certain preservation methods, I pretty much knew everything that was mentioned in Home Harvesting, having already preserved homegrown and store bought food via canning, freezing, fermenting, or dehydrating. Pezza herself said that this book is for beginners, and therefore is the perfect book for someone who is just getting started on a garden or someone who wants to preserve food in many ways (as opposed to just storing it in the freezer).

    Copy provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review. I am very glad I read this book! It gave me so many ideas that I am excited to try out!! Unfortunately, I read this book in the middle of winter (January) and now I have to wait until spring to start my garden. However, some techniques are useful year-round such as freezing. I also want to look into getting a dehydrator. Fun! Fun! Fun!

    I received this book through the First Reads giveaway program on Goodreads. I entered this giveaway for my brother and his wife. They were hoping to do a bunch of canning and all that fun stuff. I hoped this book would help them. So far, he hasn't said anything overly negative about the book, so we will go with 3 stars.

    I won this book for free in a Goodreads giveaway. It is a good beginner's primer on home harvesting, canning, preserving, etc. I think the use of color pictures would have helped, as I'm still not convinced that the black & white picture of "pumpkin puree" on page 15 isn't shaved ice. Overall a good primer, if a little boring. I won this book for free in a Goodreads giveaway.

    More of a "how-to". Almost no recipes.
