Reading # 5 – Preserving the Japanese Way

Preserving the Japanese Way

I got this book for my birthday, a couple of months ago, and read it from the first to the last page. Then I put it by my other “canning” books. After my return from Japan last week, this book was the first thing I pulled and put onto my table in order to re read and plan my preserving schedule. At every meal, every market, in each store in Japan I had been mesmerized with the pickle selection. This book not only shows techniques and recipes, it also tells stories and the history, contains many beautiful pictures, and is in depth yet easy to read. I can’t wait to serve my own little pickled side dishes very soon. (By Nancy Singleton Hachisu, Andrews McMeel Publishing.)
