The Roughwood Book Of Pickling: Homestyle Recipes For Chutneys, Pickles, Relishes, Salsas And Vinegar Infusions

Four-time IACP award winner William Woys Weaver brings bold flavors, global influences, heirloom prestige, and a master gardener's expertise to one of today's hottest culinary trends.

Including Indian-style chutneys, Latin American ajís and salsas, and Japanese-style recipes alongside European and traditional Pennsylvania Dutch pickles--The Roughwood Book of Pickling offers creative and inspiring recipes for heirloom produce. Canning and preserving grows organically from the kitchen garden, greenmarket, and CSA movement, reflecting the growing priority to know exactly where our food comes from. Beginners and experts alike can learn from Weaver's accessible instructions, experienced voice, and global palate.

Chapters are arranged for the cook into "Hot and Spicy," "Salty and Fermented," and "Sweet and Sour," with an additional section for versatile vinegar infusions.
