The book Food in Jars readers have been waiting for: 140 recipes for the preserving kitchen, helping you use up your homemade pantry!
Marisa McClellan wants everyone to know that a pantry full of homemade jams, jellies, salsas, and pickles can do a whole lot more than accompany toast. They can add bold bursts of flavor to your home cooking! In her fourth book, she provides 140 recipes for incorporating preserves into everyday dishes. It is as simple as stirring applesauce into a dish of baked oatmeal, brushing apricot jam onto a whole chicken, or building your pasta salad with a jar of pickled vegetables. Recipes include:
Preserved Lemon Hummus
Strawberry Basil Pizza
Jam-Lacquered Chicken Wings
Lemon Curd and Blueberry Tart
With chapters focusing on great ways to use preserves throughout the day and for every meal, readers aren’t required to have a specific preserve on hand to work, making this cookbook flexible and easy to use for both experienced and novice canners.
As one of the most beloved voices in canning and preserving, Marisa serves as a kitchen muse to help each reader complete the cycle of empty jar to empty jar. Add The Food in Jars Kitchen to your collection, an inspired workhorse of delicious eats.

As the editor of a home cooking website, I hear a lot of
stories from readers about their successful home preserving projects-almost
always accompanied by the question, "Any ideas for what to make with
this?" I am thrilled to now be able to point them to Marisa McClellan's
gorgeous new cookbook, which is full of ideas ranging from jam-sweetened
granola to weeknight skillets with sauerkraut.—Emma Christensen, managing editor for Simply Recipes
All of Marisa's books are essential volumes in my
kitchen--her recipes check all the right boxes: useful, reliable, creative, and
full of flavor. But The Food In Jars Kitchen might just be my favorite one yet.
Now every one of my precious jars will find its best purpose, whether slathered
on a roast chicken, swirled into a cake, or stirred into a cocktail. Best of
all, the recipes in this book are for the comforting and unfussy food I love to
eat, each one shared with the warmth and gentle authority that have made
Marisa's books so accessible and invaluable to all of us over the years.—Alana Chernila, author of Eating From the Ground Up, The
Homemade Kitchen, and The Homemade Pantry
One can eat-or give away-only so many jams or pickles on their own. Marisa has not
only given me delicious destinations for my garden creations, but also
justification for planting and preserving more! And I know that I'll make many
of her recipes with store-bought preserves, because they sound so good that
they stand on their own.
—Martha Holmberg, coauthor of Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables
Instead of letting jams and pickles languish in your
fridge (guilty), you could be using them to lacquer chicken wings, swirl into
pancakes, and perk up salad dressings. Marisa McClellan gives us the nudge and
the tools we need to liven up our cooking, just by remembering the powerhouses
we have waiting in the fridge door.—Kristen Miglore, Creative Director of Genius at Food52
and author of Genius Recipes and Genius Desserts

You will find daily inspiration in its pages for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and
