About the author (1979)

The author of several cooking and gardening books, Janet Chadwick has been growing and preserving food for years. Chadwick says, "There is no way you can 'buy' the feeling of pride you have when you show off the full freezer; the rows of canned vegetables, fruits, pickles, jams, jellies; or the root cellar shelves filled to the ceiling!" She is the author of Storey's The Busy Person's Guide to Preserving Food. Janet lives in Hinesburg, Vermont, where she has been growing and preserving food for years.
