    I checked this out of the library because I was interested in making jam, but not interested in having a zillion jars of one kind for just two of us to eat. I made several small batches using recipes from this book and they all turned out quite well.

    I read every word of this book. Marisa Mc is perhaps the most compelling and engaging food writer in the history of forever. Seriously WHO CRIES reading a cookbook? (me.) I'm making everything. We are one. I read every word of this book. Marisa Mc is perhaps the most compelling and engaging food writer in the history of forever. Seriously WHO CRIES reading a cookbook? (me.)

    A charming, practical collection of recipes and complete instructions for canning on a small scale. Perfect for trying out those interesting recipes without potentially wasting pounds of ingredients!

    Hard to believe, but this book is even better than Ms. McClellan's first. I'm so thrilled to have a new series of recipes to try going into 2015. She gets full credit for my canning adventures, without her books I probably would have never moved past pickle relish and tomato sauces. Lots if fun and delectable goodies ahead!

    I have all of Marisa's cookbooks and have taken one of her classes a few years ago. She has a great canning blog and an active Facebook canning group to get answers to questions and show what you have been canning. The group follows the National Standard for Home Preservation USDA guidelines vs some sites that allow rogue canning techniques that could be unsafe.

    For what this is, it's perfect. It's a small-batch canning and pickling book. Her recipes are super clear and easy. Since you're only making a jar or two, there isn't a lot of the specialized equipment that makes canning and preserving intimidating. Her recipes are creative, and perfect for using up leftovers or a garden surplus. And the pics are beautiful. This isn't an everyday cookbook, but if you're an avid gardener or creative cook, it's worth a look. It's also good for the budget-conscious, For what this is, it's perfect.

    The PERFECT follow up to McClellan's "Food in Jars", "Preserving by the Pint" breaks down recipes by season. Each recipe sounds delicious and was fairly unique to other canning books I have seen. As usual, the greatest thing about McClellan's recipes is that they are created in small batches so you don't commit yourself to having 8-12 jars of something you may or may not like. I'm getting a copy for my birthday and I can't wait to start canning! Strawberry season is coming!

    This totally works. I was a little dubious that one could make only a few pints of jam at a time but it worked out smashingly. Takes a lot less time too. I was a afraid a little batch would take all afternoon but it only took about an hour included sterilizing. The blueberry ginger tasted good too.

    I realized while reading this book that I knew a lot more about proper canning techniques and preserving food than I thought I did. I did learn a couple more tips about canning that will really help me in the future. There were a lot of great recipes, and I saved a few to make in the different seasons. That's one thing I really enjoyed about this book, it was broken into four sections: one for each season. This helps because it shows what will be in season and when, to help better prepare for pr I realized while reading this book that I knew a lot more about proper canning techniques and preserving food than I thought I did.

This helps because it shows what will be in season and when, to help better prepare for preserving the fruits and vegetables you grow or purchase. Very useful book for someone who is learning to preserve food. The author also mentions a few books and blogs to check out!

    things i love about this book include: (1) the fact that it's written specifically for small spaces, and my kitchen is nothing if not a small space. seriously, so many canning books are assuming that you're in some huge farmhouse kitchen rather than an urban "galley kitchen" (which is really more of a hallway); (2) it's divided by what's seasonal, which i appreciate since i'm doing all of my shopping based on what's at the farmer's market that week; (3) in addition to the recipes to can, it also things i love about this book include: (1) the fact that it's written specifically for small spaces, and my kitchen is nothing if not a small space. seriously, so many canning books are assuming that you're in some huge farmhouse kitchen rather than an urban "galley kitchen" (which is really more of a hallway); (2) it's divided by what's seasonal, which i appreciate since i'm doing all of my shopping based on what's at the farmer's market that week; (3) in addition to the recipes to can, it also includes a handful of recipes with ideas about how to use what you've just canned. for example, follow the recipe for apricot rosemary jam, then follow the recipe for jam-glazed chicken legs. it's a great addition to my cookbook library.

    These recipes are a little more ... interesting than her first book, Food in Jars, because her first book was so complete. Just because these ideas aren't conventional though does not mean they aren't delicious! I've tried some from her website previously and I'm super excited to enter the growing season with this new book in hand!

    once again, Marisa has hit a home run! page after page of recipes I'm dying to make, or flavor combinations similar to those that come to me when I'm jam planning. I checked this out from the library today and am now anxious to have a copy in my home library. once again, Marisa has hit a home run! page after page of recipes I'm dying to make, or flavor combinations similar to those that come to me when I'm jam planning.

    This was just ok. Not one of the better ones that I have seen, even by this particular author. The one plus that I did like about the book was that it was divided into seasons. I am taking it that was for seasonal items. What I did not like was that there were not many pictures in the book and many of the flavor combos to me were quite odd.

    I bought this book without seeing it first and was sorry. Tattered Cover has it now. Layout and instructions were fine, but the recipes are so hipster that apart from the strawberry champagne jam, I wasn’t interested in eating any of the final products. Also, I want to know how to make the basics before flying off into the world of “Mustardy Rhubarb Chutney”. (See, told you: Hipster.)

    Meh. This is a boring collection of ideas you've seen before. I guess these itty bitty recipes make sense if you're some rich white dude who shops at the farmer's market ironically, but it's not for practical people who want to put up what they grow. Meh.

    I didn't love this nor did I hate it either. The book was just not what I thought it was going to be. There were not enough pictures and the page set up was not what I would have liked either. Moreover, the recipes themselves were a little on the strange side as well. I didn't love this nor did I hate it either. The book was just not what I thought it was going to be.

    I loved canning in small batches. I made the oven-roasted rhubarb compote in the spring and blueberry maple jam in the summer. Both were delicious. I also made the blender salsa and it was so good that four jars weren't enough, so I made it again! I can't wait to try more I loved canning in small batches.

    This writer gave us the confidence to make jam and the know-how to not die of botulism, so I am a fan.

    Wonderful ideas to preserve food especially if you do not have a lot of food at one time or space to do it. It also makes you think of other foods that you would not normally preserve.

    A great collection of small batch recipes for water-bath canning and lacto-fermentation. No waste like using large quantities for small families or singles. I love this book!

    Great recipes, I tried out a number of them this summer. Like most canning recipe books yields can be a little fluid depending on the fruit itself and weather you measure by weight or volume, but flavor was superb in everything I tried. My favorite thing about this book is the unique flavor combinations, definitely falls into the 'foodie' category with things like Pickled Ramps, Rosemary Rhubarb Jelly, and Pear Jam with Chocolate, however there are also recipes for the less adventuresome like Sp Great recipes, I tried out a number of them this summer.

My favorite recipes so far have been Peach Barbecue Sauce, Plum Jam with Star Anise, Pickled Hot Pepper Rings, and Rosemary Apple Jam. In contrast to her first book Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round this volume includes many savory recipes and pickles bringing in ideas for lots of veggies instead of the primarily fruit focus of the first book. The only thing I didn't like about this book was it's focus on micro-batches. It is part of her audience, but when I'm faced with a recipe that is only expected to yield 2-3 half-pints of finished product it's not worth heating up my canner. So I was mostly doubling/tripling recipes that I tried.
