This book is huge. I mean coffee table size book that's impractical in the kitchen. Considering the size of it, great pictures, but better information in other books.

This book has what look to be some fabulous and unusual recipes (jalapeno jelly with pomegranate juice!) and how to use them. I agree with the previous commenter that this book is large and unwieldy and would be a pain to have sitting open on the counter.

Just got the book off the press. I cannot say I like the weight and size, it is awkward to handle: too thick, the prints are not especially large to warrant such size. Nothing written on grape jelly - a missed section ? Have not try the recipes yet, just leafing through the book and noticed that the page on Pesto sauce, she just gave the recipe and no instructions of what to do after, this is a canning book, should we can it like jam ? freeze it in cubes ? in bottles? or leave it in the fridge and eat it ASAP ?

Be warned that if your family likes certain brands that are full of sugar, some of these recipes are likely to sit on your shelves for years, unless you think of a way to hide them in other dishes.
