I am working on final edits for Asian Pickles, the print book, which will be out in March of 2014. In the interim I have a series of e-cookbooks featuring some of its content, including:
Asian Pickles Japan – featuring umeboshi, wasabi pickled carrots, and more
Asian Pickles Korea – with 16 classic kimchi and banchan ideas
Asian Pickles China – (pre-order now; available in August)
Asian Pickles India –  (pre-order now; available November)
Really? Because you may be the only one. Or my mom. Or both.

  1. Hi Karen! I just bought your book jam it,pickle it,cure it. And I love it! I made the Regular Ol Tomato Ketchup and it’s great. I heard you on the Splendid Table. I would love to make the plum ketchup. Where can I find that recipe?
    Thanks for the great book!

    1. Hiya Judy! Thanks so much for the kind words; glad you liked the ketchup. The plum ketchup recipe is actually in my other book – Can It, Bottle It, Smoke It. And, if you’re interested, in March of 2014 my new title, Asian Pickles, will have a recipe for banana ketchup as well. Woo hoo! Lots of ketchup! Happy canning…
