If you’ve dabbled in making jams or other preserved foods, then you probably are familiar with Marisa McClellan and her popular website, Food in Jars. She’s a food writer and cooking teacher and the author of three books on canning, including the 2012 best-seller “Food in Jars.”
Her new cookbook, “The Food in Jars Kitchen,” was inspired by a frequent question from her readers — about what to do with all those preserves. From pulled chicken with apple butter and cider vinegar to a sauerkraut frittata, McClellan offers appealing ideas for using what you’ve stashed in your pantry.
“I use it mostly as a marinade for chicken thighs and zucchini that are destined for the grill, but it is also a favorite for dressing chopped salads,” she says in the recipe’s introduction.
