Avid Bookshop presents author Liana Krissoff and photographer Rinne Allen in celebration of the updated and expanded edition of Canning for a New Generation from 6:30pm - 7:30pm on Thursday, August 25th, 2016. There is no admission charge.




The revised and expanded edition of the bestselling resource for canning and preserving, with 50 new recipes plus all-new sidebars and tips.


In Liana Krissoff’s breakout success, Canning for a New Generation, home cooks were introduced to a hip, modern guide to canning, chock-full of approachable, time-tested, and accurate recipes, as well as intriguing new flavor pairings. In this updated and expanded edition, Krissoff includes 50 new recipes for food preservation in addition to her favorites, including:, Brandied Cherries, Peach Salsa, Strawberry Jam, and Honeyed Bread and Butter Pickles.


Organized by season, Krissoff’s recipes illustrate fresh ways to preserve the harvest throughout the year, employing techniques like water-bath canning that are safe and easy to follow. The recipes are all created with small-batch yields in mind, which will appeal to beginning canners and expert homesteaders alike. Krissoff addresses special diet concerns with recipes for low-sugar or sugar-free preserves, as well as methods for canning jams and preserves without pectin. In addition to canning recipes, there are old-style fermenting recipes, new freezing techniques, and recipes on how to use your canned goods to make delicious meals once you’ve put them up.




Liana Krissoff is the author of five cookbooks, including Whole Grains for a New Generation and Vegetarian for a New Generation: Seasonal Vegetable Dishes for Vegetarians, Vegans, and the Rest of Us. She worked in the editorial departments of Rizzoli and HarperCollins and has been a freelance recipe tester, editor, and writer for over a decade. Happily transplanted from a tiny apartment in Manhattan, she now lives with her husband and their daughter in Morgantown, West Virginia.
