The proverbial jar of marmalade to intern Shannon Shafer for her super kind coverage of Jam It in the May 31st Chron. She writes:
San Francisco writer Karen Solomon’s “Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It and Other Cooking Projects” (Ten Speed Press; 148 pages; $24.95) is filled with ideas for homemade food gifts and pantry items, as well as handcrafted alternatives for commercial kitchen staples such as mayonnaise and butter. The recipes run the gamut from pickles and pasta to cured meats and cheeses, and include sections on jams and frozen treats. A delightful segment dedicated to candy-making will help you re-create favorites such as peanut butter cups and “senior mints.”
