Canning and preserving is easier than you might think -- and you don't need to become one of those amazingly dedicated harvest preservers who ends up with hundreds of jars of canned fruits and vegetables gathering dust for years to come.

Home Canning and Preserving: Putting up Small Batch Jams, Jellies, Pickles, Chutneys, Relishes, and More by Janet Cooper (currently available for $13.12 on Amazon) is dedicated to the small batch method.

In these nine recipes from the book, Cooper shows you how to make everything from classic strawberry jam to an unexpected rhubarb-apple chutney, traditional cranberry sauce, and savory winter pickles -- all of which are just the right yield for saving a few and sharing a few.

And, a fresh jam or jelly makes the perfect, thoughtful holiday gift.
