My cookbook wish list is ridiculously long (especially considering how many I already have), but what can I say? Some people collect stamps and coins; I collect cookbooks. My cookbook library gives me a certain sensory/OCD/inspirational joy that few other things do. So I had to share a just-out cookbook out that I spied today on The Wednesday Chef which just jumped to the number three slot on my list (behind Super Natural Every Day by Heidi Swanson and Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, in case you were wondering). Check out Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry by Liana Krissoff.
That is where this lovely looking book would come in handy. Most canning books are dusty tomes from the seventies that don't take into consideration today's lifestyles and palettes. I'm drooling over the diversity of recipes that this book features, from kimchi to salsa verde, and the eclectic jams from black plum cardamom to tea jelly. I want a wall that looks like the one above. I can't wait to get my paws on this book and get canning!
