    I would like to tackle fermenting and pressure canning – pressure canning because I am somewhat terrified of pressure cookers! Tweeted too from @shanatweet

  2. Jen Cerny May 9, 2016 at 08:26 #

    I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a smoker so would like to get some good tips and ideas.

  3. Janet Applegate May 9, 2016 at 08:47 #

    I would love to read the section on dehydrating because I received a dehydrator as a gift and am dying to try it out. All topics look interesting to me though.

  4. Carolyn Wheatley May 9, 2016 at 11:25 #

    Would love to learn more about dehydrating! 🙂

  5. Gwen Nowlan May 9, 2016 at 13:13 #

    I have never done any of them so I would start with the water bath. Food is so expensive now that to be able to preserve it properly would be a great skill to have

  6. KJ May 9, 2016 at 18:29 #

    Thanks for the chance to win. I have done a little dehydrating but would like to learn more about it. I’d also like to try water bath preserving.

  7. Cindy Chan May 9, 2016 at 21:31 #

    I would love to learn the salt and smoke technique because I’ve never smoked anything before.

  8. Antonio Cillero May 9, 2016 at 21:33 #

    I would like to learn the dehydrating technique to preserve mushrooms that I find on my forays.

  9. Jennifer Dyck May 10, 2016 at 08:30 #

    Dehydrating! I’d like to learn how to preserve herbs by drying some of them rather than relying on my freezer all the time.

    I want to get braver to try canning and also get more fermenting ideas. Yum!

  16. Redawna May 10, 2016 at 13:11 #

    Preserving food is close to my heart!
    When my youngest son died I turned to gardening to work through my grief. I had a 4000 square food garden that summer. With a bumper crop I had to learn how to can and make pickles and jams.
    What a learning experience it was.
    Saying that I would love to learn more about fermenting.

    Dehydrating (would love to try with Ontario peaches!) and water bath canning. Lovely to have a Canadian contest too.

    I think that fermenting is something that I would like to try, especially as my family loves kimchee !

  21. Beth May 11, 2016 at 08:57 #

    I’d love to learn more about fermentation, since watching the series Cooked, I’m fascinated by the process.

  22. Kathryn May 11, 2016 at 09:11 #

    I would like to learn any number of new ways to preserve (other than my freezer), but I would have to start with my phobia — hot water bath canning!

    It would be wonderful to win the “Batch” cookbook because I love
    working with food and preserving things.Thanks so much for this
    amazing opportunity and chance to win it!!

  37. janet @ the taste space May 14, 2016 at 13:59 #

    I started to learn about canning but I don’t even know what cellaring is! I’d love to learn about that and whether my cold room would actually be useful. Sometimes I think it is too warm in the summer and too cold in the winter. Gah.

  38. Andrea May 14, 2016 at 15:29 #

    I’d really love to learn how to ferment. Always been a little scared of the process but I’m sure this book could help me out 😉

  39. Amber Y May 14, 2016 at 17:12 #

    I’d like to learn more about water bath canning since it seems like a really good (and safe) starter method which would be perfect for me!!

  40. marisa raponi May 15, 2016 at 08:10 #

    I would love to learn about smoking foods

  41. Marlene May 15, 2016 at 11:42 #

    I’m curious about fermenting, as that is a technique I haven’t tried yet. On the other hand … that relish! With asparagus season coming into gear, I think I need to make some of that too!

  46. Matthew Trennum May 15, 2016 at 15:27 #

    I really want to try salting & smoking. I’ve done some water bathing before and I’d love to expand my preserving abilities.

  48. Carolyn May 15, 2016 at 19:16 #

    Pressure canning scares the bejeepers out of me, but it’s on my bucket list to master, preferably sooner rather than later!

  49. Lillian May 15, 2016 at 21:25 #

    Salted and smoked canning seems super interesting! I’ve never done any type of canning before so I would love to learn!

  50. Kristen May 16, 2016 at 12:01 #

    Looks excellent! I love asparagus too. As a first time home owner, I’m looking for all the info and help I can for preserving our garden goodies all year round. I’m most familiar with water bath canning, but looking to practice my dehydrating, pressure canning and fermenting. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  51. Kait May 16, 2016 at 18:03 #

    I would love to learn about salting and dehydarting. Thanks for this opportunity.

  52. SusiBoJo May 16, 2016 at 18:11 #

    Water bath canning is an old tried and true technique that I was never taught. It’s great for pickles and that’s why I’d like to learn it.
