Canning, pickling, preserving sweet and sour
Fine from the glass
It has been a tradition in Germany's kitchens that goes back more than a century, the preservation of food. The various types of fruit and vegetables can be preserved when they are boiled down. Fruit and vegetables can be placed in vinegar, oil or alcohol and this ensures different flavors and gives every dish that special something. In the past, people usually boiled down food for the winter or for days when food was very scarce.
Conservation has always been one of the simplest and cheapest methods. At harvest times, fruit and vegetables can be purchased in large quantities and inexpensively, so it is worthwhile to stock up during these times.
In addition, you can store the preserving jars wonderfully and you should just make sure to keep them cool, dry and in complete darkness. Food would perish over time due to the effects of oxygen, light, temperature, microorganisms or the action of food's enzymes. These factors are eliminated by preservation.
Simple, delicious recipes invite you to cook them at home
You get a choice of 122 recipes, sweet or sour, fruit or vegetables, historical backgrounds, soaking in oil, soaking in vinegar, soaking in alcohol and lots of tips for preserving.
