Preserving with a Purpose is not your mama’s or grandma’s canning and preserving book. In 125 scrumptious and foolproof recipes, Sarah Thrush—whose inspiring, informative, and frequently viral videos on TikTok @peeliesnpetals have been seen by tens of millions of people—shows you the best and tastiest ways to put up the traditional canning foods, from tomatoes and green beans to apples and peaches, just like mama and grandma did. But she also ranges widely in the more robust flavor profiles that come from the best cuisines from all over the planet—all of which earlier preserving books neglect. Hers is the kind of food today’s world citizens eat, diverse and glorious in its variety.

If you are a rookie preserver, you will master canning and preserving quickly, safely, and thoroughly. If you are an experienced canner, you will discover amazing new recipes and techniques, along with advice on how to integrate canning and preserving into a self-sufficient, money-saving, and sustainable lifestyle.
