Add Culinary Skills With Can It_Bottle it_Smoke It_ by K Solomon__ Celebrate Good Eating with Family

Updated on February 4, 2013

Culinary Ideas for Kitchen Projects

Karen Solomon's new book, "Can it, Bottle it, Smoke it and Other Kitchen Projects" (Ten Speed Press, 2011) is functional, creative, and beautifully done with mouthwatering pictures. The book just became available at my Fairfax County Public Library where I pick it up while glancing through the new book section.

The book is a great place to start your next kitchen project getting ready for the holiday season coming up to be ready for the celebration with some mouthwatering tasty stuff for your family and friend clans perhaps in time for Christmas.

The book actually has far more than can, bottle, and smoke, There are 14 chapters that include jam, pickle, bake, munch, hunt, slurp and freeze among others.

For those who are not familiar with the preservation techniques for long duration as much as a year, such as sterilizing, vaccum sealing, etc., it would be worthwhile to invest in a cooking or home economics course at the local community college, agriculture extension station, another local source to gain some actual experience of doing before creating these and other such good eats from your backyard kitchen garden, grocery store or farmer's market items.


Autumn Festivities in Ole Virginia

In summer, here in Virginia for example, blueberries, apples and strawberries are plantyful and not expensive. In fall, pears, apples, apricots, peaches, corn, peppers, greenhouse tomatoes are items that are given in receipes are given by K. Solomon for your consideration. Bake items, snack, pickle items, syrups, and even some special meat items are all here, beautifully and easy to read ways.

If one already has skills in making homemade canning, bottling, smoking, and others, the featured items in this book surely will add motivation and joy of creating something new and special for the festive season in November, December and January coming upon us rapidly now getting ready for autman and then winter seasons here in Virginia.
