Preserving the Taste of Summer

Listen: Preserving the Taste of Summer

As the end of summer draws near, we're making our final efforts to savor the flavors of the season from our gardens and farmers market. For some help we turned to Marisa McClellan, the food preservationist extraordinaire who runs the blog Food in Jars and has written three books on preserving. She talked with our contributor Shauna Sever about some simple ways to take last days of summer produce and keep them forever. Marisa also shared her informative starters guide, Quick Introduction to Canning, as well as her recipes for Spicy Pickled Green Beans and Small Batch Spiced Blueberry Jam. Books by Marisa McClellan: Naturally Sweet Food in Jars, Preserving by the Pint, Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round.
