Review of Not Your Mother’s Food Storage: Store the Food You Use Every Day by Kathy Bray and Jan Barker

Not Your Mother's Food Storage

The premise: food storage for the modern cook.

The idea is good, but the book falls short of fulfilling the premise.  

A friend bought this book because she knew I was looking into this topic…and it was really sweet because I’ve been researching how to store things for a while both in canning method, dried foods, and other means. This book which states it covers food storage does not actually do that. 

This is a how-to-plan food on a monthly basis book. I’ve seen this concept in several places…it’s not new. 
It wasn’t until page 56 that I actually got to food storage…and it covered all of a page and a half. Wow!
There were several recipes, but none that I haven’t seen in a dozen places. I would not recommend this book. You’d be better off looking online. If I find a better book, I’ll share it.
