A couple weeks back, I picked up The Complete Book of Pickling by Jennifer MacKenzie and LOVE it. It's full of all sorts of pickle, relish, chutney and salsa recipes that are far from ordinary. I've already made several of them and they've all been winners I'll definitely be making in the future. Problem is, the book has TOO many recipes I want to try! :giggle2: I thought I was pretty well done with canning for the year when I picked this up.

Canning Homemade has been down for maintenance for a while. They just posted a whole slew of recipes, many of which are wintery types of things that you can do now.
