Interesting Recipes

I am looking forward to putting some meals up for family households. There is a wonderful assortment of recipes in the book so there is something for everyone. I must add my plea for a comprehensive shopping list, and how much/many jars each recipe will make. Way too much math and guess work to be sure that when I start I will have enough ingredients to finish. Beautiful book..looking forward to the next one.

Great book for helping me with my new "Gluten Free" diet!

Very helpful book to help me through re-vamping my food storage down to 2 people with meals in jars and meals for one. Plus I'm now on a Gluten Free diet so with a few slight modifications...ZAP... I have Gluten Free meals in jars! (especially the condensed soups...I've even formulated a condensed tomato soup that is excellent) No more having to endlessly read ALL the labels at the store. Most of my food is in my pantry!

Ingredients List

Liking the Book, but I really need a list like Gin mentioned that has all the ingredients listed so I know what I need to purchase. The list should be on a spreadsheet so one can highlight the recipes and know what ingredients to purchase.

We are going to do a jar day with our children, thus using up the ingredients in the #10 cans.

Can't wait to try, but...

I can't wait to try this out! I agree with Gin (posted 1/19/14) that a comprehensive ingredient list in chart form would be the absolute icing on the cake. I'm new to food storage prep and the 52 Jar method is perfect for me! Maybe a link or pdf on this Honeyville site with the master ingredient list would be a way to solve the missing step?

Looking forward to trying this

I've been looking for a way to get my ward's younger RS ladies interested in being prepared for emergencies that would be easy and quick and that wasn't boring and overwhelming. This is almost like a craft project that has a real purpose, a bonus of being food storage. There are two things that I wish had been included in the book. First, alternatives for some of the ingredients like the spices. Second, a comprehensive ingredient list in a chart form at the back of the book listing the Honeyville products need to be purchased for each recipie. That way when a person goes to purchase the ingredients for one recipe they like they can see if what they need to purchased might also be in another recipe saving time in making a shopping list.

Fun Gift!

I got this book to put together fun meals in jars as gifts and all have gotten good reviews. Then I decided to give the actual book as the gift and was lucky enough to have Chef Tess sign them for the recipients. Now I need one more because another friend was jealous! LOL
Thanks Cheff Tess for the fabulous book. It's bee a lot of fun!

High quality book

I was so excited to get this cookbook. I am ALL about the canning jar and using it for meals in a jar. I have a few other jar meal cookbooks. This one is well put together and the recipes as mentioned above are a little fancier than most, but there are basics as well. The one thing that is challenging to me is the specialty ingredients such as powdered soy sauce, powdered hickory smoke flavor, and powdered apple cider vinegar. I just ordered them online, but these 3 ingredients cost me $50 for a 16 oz. pkg. of each. It's a commitment. I hope it was worth it. I also struggle not having Chef Tess seasoning which she uses in quite a few recipes but does not give an alternative spice if you do not own this. I am using seasoning salt, and I hope that works.

Some good stuff

I was really looking forward to this cookbook, I have a lot of food storage and wanted to put meals together. There are some good recipes in the book but so many are things we would not eat, I guess I'm looking for some comfort food recipes. 1 example, Chicken and sweet potato with citrus sauce and rice. These recipes are fancier than I cook.
