Get ready for summer with “Put ’em Up Fruit”

Sherri Brooks Vinton is back! You may know this Easton resident as the author of “Put ‘Em Up: A Comprehensive Home Preserving Guide for the Creative Cook from Drying and Freezing to Canning and Pickling.” (You can read all about it here.) Now, just in time for summer, she’s come out with “Put ‘Em Up! Fruit: A Preserving Guide & Cookbook” (Storey Publishing, 2013). There are over 80 recipes in this full-color, easy-to-follow guide. Each chapter is broken down by fruit– apples, cherries, lemons, grapes, rhubarb, etc. Yes, there are recipes for jams and jellies, but also all sorts of creative things like blueberry ketchup, cranberry molasses, and strawberry balsamic glaze. As if we weren’t already itching for warm weather, this book will make you crave all the delicious fruits of summer. fruit
