Summary

Don't be a killer.  
In 2015, home-canned potatoes killed one and sickened a dozen. Don't let this incident scare you away from home-canning either. There are many reasons to home-can. 
Perhaps you have embarked on a sustainable self-sufficient homesteading lifestyle. You may have a healthy edible garden filled with organic produce free from chemicals and dangerous additives. You may have fished, hunted or raised chickens or rabbits for meat. 
Perhaps you're a survival prepper wanting to stock up on cheap, seasonal food in preparation of a zombie apocalypse or an economic collapse. 
Or perhaps you've simply found a good deal on groceries and want to stock up to save money and to help with the family budget. 
Unfortunately, your abundant harvest will not last long unless it is safely preserved. In addition to drying, freezing, fermenting and pickling, canning is a good way to store your food long term. The question is how do you start? Home canning is not as straightforward as some of the other preservation methods and carries the risk of botulism contamination if not processed correctly. 
Unfortunately, not all canning sources or recipes, not even your "tried and true" family recipes, can be trusted. The environment, bacterial strains and even our food itself has changed over the years. Produce has become less acidic while bacterial strains have evolved. Canning techniques that were once safe may no longer be. Home canning can be economical, healthier, tasty, nutritious and fun. Lucky ones may have fond childhood memories of the best of summer's harvest being home canned. Unfortunately, some canning recipes and methods that proliferate the internet are downright dangerous.  
~ This book does not contain recipes but contains links to SAFE researched-backed canning recipes from University Extension offices as well as the USDA ~ 
 
In this book you will learn the do's and don'ts of home canning fruits, vegetables, salsas, meat, seafood and fish as recommended by the Master Food Preservers. 
Discover the importance of using proper acids and salts. 
Tips on how to make your canning efforts go more smoothly are also included.

    Craig and Shaun McAnuff are bringing Da'Flava from the Caribbean to your kitchen! 
      
    We're Craig and Shaun, two brothers from South London, but with Jamaica in our hearts and souls. Our Mum and Nanny taught us to cook, and Original Flava is all about meals that are vibrant, lively, exciting, and full of the influences from different cultures that make the Caribbean island of Jamaica so wonderful. That's why we've travelled to Jamaica to bring you its authentic and fresh FLAVAs! 
      
    Our motto is EAT: we make our recipes Easy, Accessible and Tasty. We want to give you platefuls that taste like grandma's food so there are recipes for classics like Ackee 'n' Saltfish and Curry goat, and Caribbean favourites from home such as Garlic butter lobster and Trini doubles. We also like to twist it up a likkle to give dishes our modern spin, so you can find recipes for Honey roasted jerk-spiced salmon, Plantain beanburgers and Banana fritter cheesecake. 
      
    The most important thing, we think, is the togetherness food brings­ – the same happiness we have with our family. We want to share this joy: a testament to the culture of Jamaica, the fun, fantastic FLAVAs, and the stories behind the food, straight from the people of Jamaica. So, get your ingredients, turn on a likkle music, and let's get cooking!

    More than just typical burger-joint fare or sloppy, grease-soaked pizzas, American recipes are as varied and full of personality as our citizens. In Coast to Coast Cookery, editor Marian Tracy showcases a diverse collection of regional American recipes. From Indiana Steamed Persimmon Pudding to Hawaiian Curry, Ohio Maple Dumplings, and Pennsylvanian Fishhouse Punch (famously used in toasts to George Washington's memory), these midcentury recipes marry the many different cultural backgrounds that compose America. Regular staples such as apple pie and casseroles make an appearance alongside more exotic finds such as Cannibal Appetizers from Illinois or Watermelon Rind Pickle from Georgia. Older recipes like Florida Roast Opossum or Pennsylvania Snapper Stew are intermingled with more recent ones, and stories such as how hush puppies earned their names or what kind of woman inspired the "Anna, damn her" bread are interspersed throughout the collection. A mouth-watering foray into the world of American culinary flair, Coast to Coast Cookery delivers unique recipes from more than 40 American states and regions.

    At the age of eleven, the daughter of a Sicilian sharecropper, Maria Grammatico, entered the San Carlo Institute in the mountaintop town of Erice, an orphanage run by nuns who were famous throughout Sicily for their almond pastries, but who were less adept at dealing with young girls. After ten years of hard work and harsh discipline, Maria emerged with the secrets of the nuns’ pastries hidden inside her head.   This is the story of her carefree country childhood—her Dickensian life in the orphanage with no heat, no running water, and only wood-burning ovens—and her triumphs as an entrepreneur and a world-famous pastry chef.  Bitter Almonds includes 46 of the recipes that she ‘stole’ from the nuns, committed to writing for the first time in these pages.
