Included are techniques and recipes for jams and jellies, conserves and fruit butters, condiments, dried treats like fruit leathers and veggie chips, and freezer recipes. Also find recipes for pickles, sauerkraut, relishes, soups—even syrups. And when the tomatoes ripen all at once, check out a chapter on smart ways to preserve them.

Make-ahead cooking isn’t about stocking the freezer with pre-made meals that don’t keep well.

Make-ahead cooking also saves money. For time-strapped families, these strategies can be the difference between a home-cooked meal and spending money on packaged meals or ordering in.
