Jimmy Would Love This
I am a sucker for any book on preserving any-thing. Thanks to Amazon's ability for anayltics, I never miss the release of a new one.
Though released last year, one full of particularly wonderful ideas is Put 'Em Up by Sherri Brooks Vinton. Most preserving books are include all seasons of produce but in this one I find more year-round recipe which really appeal to me. Recipes using fennel and mushrooms. Lots of ideas for citrus.
A stroke of brilliance is a suggestion for using dried limes to flavor soups and stews.
Okay, I'll be honest. It spoke to me because I always seem to be in the process of dry limes - though I never intend to.
A revelation for chicken tortilla soup. Def.
Limes not "wasting away in Margaritaville".
Now it's nobody's fault.
