Beyond Canning a Book Review + Smoky Carrot Coins

Beyond Canning BookWe’re quite excited to be carrying Autumn’s cookbook, Beyond Canning! While it truly is a beautiful book, it also has much to offer in the way of recipes and tips for preserving. The book contains three topics… Sweet Preserves, Pickles, and Fermentation. So if you’re wishing to expand your preserving in more than one direction, you’re in luck!

I’m also drawn to the manner in which the recipes are laid out – I find it oddly comforting in some way, as if everything is in its place. (Perhaps it’s the amount of time I spent maintaining science lab journals – back in the day when we had those black speckled bound composition books in which we had to document (in writing) each experiment with prior research, materials, procedures, etc.)

If you’ve had some experience in preserving, many of her recipes offer a different approach – either by process or ingredients – that change up the flavor profile a bit. Chances are, you’ll not only become infatuated with some of her recipes, but they will inspire you to make some changes on your own! Often, spices are not a required part of the preserving and we often forget (or it doesn’t occur to us) that they can be adjusted to suit our preferences.

Smoky Carrot Coins

BlogSmoky Carrot Coins Beyond Canning Autumn’s recipe for Smoky Carrot Coins (which are pickled) do not contain any garlic, which isn’t a big deal unless you’ve got some eaters in your home who aren’t crazy for it. My children don’t love it…and I’m not crazy over intensely garlicky pickles. Since we’ve become staunch fans of the smoky version of salt, this recipe is now on the top of my list. However, when I went to make these beauties, I had smoked salt, but not smoked paprika, so I used both….but the smoky component came from the salt instead of the paprika. I realize it wasn’t an equal swap, but since it wasn’t going to have an impact on the safety, I justified it. (The recipe below is the original one from Autumn’s book.)

Ingredients

Pickling Spices Beyond Canning Orchard Road Pint¼ teaspoon each of whole yellow mustard seed, fennel seed, celery seed, smoked paprika, and crushed red pepper
1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into ¼ -inch-thick coins
2½ cups apple cider vinegar
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt

Materials

Basic supplies for vinegar preserves (available on page 78 of her book).
When following a new recipe, I usually stick to what’s there on the page.  I’m so accustomed to being prompted by the general  “prepare water bath, gather jars and lids, jar lifter, magnetic lid wand, and any other of your canning essentials”. Autumn refers the reader to a section in her book that covers some basics for that particular preservation method rather than covering it with each recipe….which I appreciate, after all, it is Beyond Canning! However, since “page 78 of her book” isn’t available in this venue, this is where we prompt you to prepare your water bath and gather your essentials!

Yield: 2 pints

  1. Place ¼ teaspoon each of whole yellow mustard seed, fennel seed, celery seed, smoked paprika, and crushed red pepper in each prepared pint jar.4th Burner Pot Pickling Brine Measurements
  2. Divide the peeled and prepped carrots between the 2 jars. You can shake them from side to side to help the contents settle.
  3. Bring the vinegar, sugar, and salt to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt. We used our our 4th Burner Pot, because of its handy measurement marks.
  4. Pour into prepared pint jars, leaving ½ -inch headspace. Wipe rims. Place the lids on the jars and screw on the bands until they’re fingertip tight.
  5. Process in a water-bath canner for 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude if needed.
  6. After 24 hours, check the seals. Label, date, and store out of direct sunlight without the bands for up to a year.

    This is great! My husband wants to get into fermenting so this would be a great gift.

    Those smoky carrot coins look SO good. I would love to have the tools to do more fermenting- I know I need the probiotics, and they’re so yummy. A great cookbook, weight, and lid would go far to help with that!

    I have been cannning since I was a teen and there is nothing that fills my heart with happiness then opening the Pantry doors and seeing all of the hard work. When Christmas comes, the table is full of my jars of homemade jellies/jams, pickles and juices. Since I am ‘old’ now the finances are not as plentiful and having some of supplies would go along way. Thank you for everything. I love the tips you offer. I have changed many of the things I used to do for newer safer methods because of your site.

    If you hate the price of smoked paprika, Kroger has ground chipotle–smoked jalapeño–which imho tastes smokier and tastier than the high-priced stuff.

    I’d live to win so I can learn to ferment something besides my beloved kimchi. Love to can!

    I had a lot of carrots one year and decided to can them but not really satisfied with what I did. So I need to look at something else to put in them. They are great in soups, salads, stews too.

    Smoked carrot rings sound scrumptious i cant wait to do this recipe. Even if i have to buy the carrots from the farmers market or grocery store as i am not currently growing any vegetables right now!

  166. Kim Reid Posted February 24, 2016 at 11:03 pm | Permalink

  167. Nancee Posted February 25, 2016 at 2:30 pm | Permalink

    As a 4H leader who teaches food preservation, I would love to have the items to share with all the kids at our meetings. The book is invaluable in providing new recipes. The jars would help those who cannot afford a lot of equipment. Also teaching fermentation would be a new treat for the kids!!

    I have never picketed anything before but would love to get started. The only things I have canned are preserves and jams. I dehydrate a lot but really want to try this. I bough and converted a new cabinet to hold all my home canned veggies and jams and dehydrated things. Ready to put some pickled veggies in there too .
