Welcome to the world of produce preservation. In Can It & Ferment It, blogger Stephanie Thurow brings the canning and fermenting communities together by offering recipes that work for both canning and fermenting. From a first-timer to the advanced preservationist, Can It & Ferment It shows canners and fermenters alike how they can have the best of both worlds.

Stephanie explains the differences between the canning and fermentation processes, emphasizes the importance of using local and organic produce, describes canning and fermenting terminology and the supplies needed for both methods, and offers more than 75 fun and easy recipes for every season. Readers will learn how to make the same recipes in two different ways; each can be enjoyed water bath canned or as a healthy probiotic-rich ferment. Recipes include:

Fermented strawberry chutney
The perfect garlic dill pickle
Fermented green tomato salsa
Quick cinnamon-honey apple butter
And more!

Kristin (occasional guest blogger) works full-time and is a part-time single mom.  She enjoys trying (and making) new recipes, gardening, walking, and learning all about trains and construction equipment with her son.  She may be considered a little “overstated and annoying” when it comes to avoiding foods that are conventional, contain MSG, or are distributed in plastic.  She has also been known to get very animated when discussing the chemicals in the water, the benefits of juicing, and visualization techniques.  She also loves to dance!
