The book's title, too, misleads: "Canning for a New Generation" is limited to water-bath canning, which leaves out all preserved meats, fish, stocks, soups, sauces, and low-acid vegetables, except those that are pickled or fermented--some pretty big exceptions.
I have to wonder what Krissoff's editors at Stewart Tabori & Chang were thinking when they allowed her to take potshots at groups of people she evidently holds in low regard. Oughtn't books to invite in as many readers as possible, rather than exclude or set out to insult some of them with flippant language like "canning [used to be] for old folks and cranks and separatists" (p. 9) and "I flipped through some canning books at Barnes & Noble (public libraries also being the domain of old folks and cranks--though not separatists so much)" (ibid.)?
If you're new to preserving and want to start with jams, jellies, marmalades, and pickles (the easiest entry points), read Linda Ziedrich's extraordinary and wide-ranging books, "The Joy of Jams, Jellies, and Other Sweet Preserves" (2009) and "The Joy of Pickling" (2009) for beautifully and clearly written recipes and front material by someone who has been preserving for more than forty years. If you're an experienced preserver and are looking for further frisky jam and jelly recipes, pick up a used copy of May Byron's "Jams and Jellies" (1917; repr. 1975) and Catherine Plagemann's "Fine Preserving" (1963). None of these deeply knowledgeable writers claims, as Ms. Krissoff does, that her "recipes . . . are for people a little bit like me." They write (or wrote) for the world, and the depth of their experience and humanity is evident in every one of their recipes.
I'm a more traditional "canner" but there were some recipes in in this book that interested me and I do like that the author includes recipes to use with the preserved foods. However, I do recommend that a beginner invest in something like The Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving (or get information from the U.S.D.A. or local county extension office) in addition to Canning For a New Generation because the Ball book gives better information about canning and preserving that is important for food safety. Krissoff gives some information but I felt it wasn't thorough enough for someone with no previous knowledge of canning. However, for new and fresh recipes this book is a good resource.
PS - The photography is very inspirational!!
