If you are anything like me, you wander through summer markets inhaling the sweetness of summer fruits, wishing that your senses could be this alert and tantalized all year.
Sherri Brooks Vinton, CT author and locavore, has written her third book. This one focuses on preserving abundant seasonal produce. Put ‘Em Up! Fruit, takes the reader on a friendly journey, explaining how to preserve a wide range of fruit, from apples to rhubarb and blueberries to quince. You’ll be making salsas, marmalades, chutneys, gastriques and infusions before the summer ends.
To enter this GIVE-AWAY and receive a free copy of Put ‘Em Up! Fruit, leave a comment at the end of this post. Tell me which summer fruit is your favorite.
And because there is NOTHING I love more than a perfectly ripe, fuzzy, dripping, sweet peach, I asked Sherri to share a peach recipe with my readers. She’s really sweet, too.
Check back in tomorrow for her super simple recipe for Peach Jam.
This contest runs from July 31-August 7 at 9 AM. The handy dandy Random Number Generator will chose the winner and I will notify you by e-mail. Please be ready to provide a mailing address so I can pop this volume in the mail on time for you to start simmering while the summer fruit is still piled high.
NOTE: Put ‘Em Up! Fruit is extremely kosher friendly.
