Putting Up
In Putting Up, author Steve Dowdney colorfully and descriptively guides readers safely through the home canning process. In his plainspoken narrative, Dowdney explains how to put up crops harvested during each month of the year and includes 65 of the most popular and delicious recipes he produces for his successful canning business. Also included is a resource section that contains information on where all essential canning supplies can be purchased. More than just a how-to manual, Putting Up is a wonderful guide for canners and non-canners alike. It is chock full of anecdotes, stories and vignettes of a long gone agrarian south that filled the author's youth and still fills his heart and memory.

Review: Los Angeles Daily News - June 25, 2008
"Dowdney runs through the techniques, equipment and supplies needed, step-by-step preparations, hot packing, water bathing and much more in this colorful volume. Many of the recipes -- among them Peach Chutney, Strawberry-Orange Marmalade, Bread and Butter Pickles, Pear Relish and Very Berry Preserves -- look and sound delicious, too."
Review: Charleston Magazine - August 1, 2008
"Dowdney has provided an invaluable manual for the novice and a treasure-trove of new knowledge for even the most experienced home canner."
Review: Sacramento Bee - June 25, 2008
"Granted, home canning is a lot of work, but it is also a satisfying way to preserve your home-grown produce to use later in the year when the garden is fallow. The author of "Putting Up" explains how to successfully do just that with 65 recipes that range from tomato sauce to jelly. It's a great reference book that takes all of the fear out of home canning."
Review: Southern Living - July 1, 2008
"Steve shares his expertise in home canning with a new step-by-step guide."
Review: The Splendid Table - August 14, 2008
"A gem of a book titled Putting Up: A Year-Round Guide to Canning in the Southern Tradition by Stephen Palmer Dowdney is my choice of this summer's must-have volume. At least it is a must-have for all of us tempted by canning and preserving but smart enough to know that without solid science behind what we're doing, things can get dangerous. Dowdney's recipes are good, but what takes this book to the head of the class is the solid, logical science and technique information. He puts us in control, rather than left to just follow a vague recipe hoping all will be well. This is the reference book you want for any preserving you take on."
Review: Tampa Tribune - June 25, 2008
"Dowdney re-examines the pastime by explaining the materials and methods used in canning, offers recipes for such seasonal fare as artichoke chow-chow and garlic pickles, and offers resources for keeping the family tradition alive."
