"A stylish, richly illustrated, practical guide for home cooks and preserving enthusiasts, the first cookbook from journalist Kevin West, author of the popular blog Savingtheseason.com. Incorporating classic favorites and new flavors, West gives us more than one hundred recipes, organized by season, for sweet preserves and savory pickles; easy-to-can vegetables and fruits; condiments such as relishes, chutneys, and salsas; and cordials, candies, and cocktails. Interspersed with the recipes are chronicles of West's travels and the history of American preserving traditions from California to New Mexico to Long Island. A witty and erudite culinary companion, West makes a rich and entertaining story of the introductions to the recipes. Also included is a primer on preserving techniques that addresses issues of food safety and nutrition"--

In my estimation there are roughly two classes of cookbook, one that is a delight to read but somewhat short of recipes, and one that is jam packed with recipes but short on writing. Kevin West has managed to make Saving the Season both of these. I picked up this book looking for a recipe for bread and butter pickles and found it was more than a book of canning recipes. He is a great writer, focuses on cooking seasonally and includes interesting antidotes (see pg 232). I guess I will have to break down and buy this one when my renewals run out.
