      Marisa McClellan was an adult in a high-rise in Philadelphia when she rediscovered canning, and found herself under the preserving spell. She grew accustomed to working in large batches because most "vintage" recipes are written to feed a large family, or to use up a farm-size crop. Increasingly, however, she found that smaller batches suited her life better. Working with a quart, pound, pint or bunch of produce (and not a bushel) allows for dabbling in preserving without committing a whole shelf to storing a single type of jam.

      Preserving by the Pint is meant to be a guide for saving smaller batches from farmers markets and produce stands-preserving tricks for stopping time in a jar. McClellan's recipes offer tastes of unusual preserves like Blueberry Maple Jam, Mustardy Rhubarb Chutney, Sorrel Pesto, and Zucchini Bread and Butter Pickles. Organized seasonally, these pestos, sauces, mostardas, chutneys, butters, jams, jellies and pickles are speedy, too: Some take under an hour, leaving you more time to plan your next batch.
