Cover of Chef Murray Zehr’s book, “What Else Can I Do With These Preserves?”

The first cookbook ever written on the topic of what to do with Preserves has been published by Chef Murray Zehr, of the 1909 Culinary Academy. The book will assist all levels of cooks to utilize preserves in the pantry for at-home cooking. Sunday Chef Zehr launched the book for sale online through Amazon.

19 of the most popular preserves that consumers have prepared at home or purchased during the pandemic are showcased in this unique cookbook with over 100 recipes to create appetizers, entrees, and desserts.

Besides opening a jar of pickled beets and placing them in a bowl, or making yet another charcuterie board, consumers have no knowledge on “what else can I do with these preserves?”

In 2020, millions of people attempted home-canning, but they have no idea what to do with these preserves. This cookbook assists the reader by showing them unique and one-of-a-kind recipes utilizing preserves such as pickled asparagus, pickled beets, dill pickles, salsa, and zucchini relish. Recipes in the book include Pickled Asparagus Eggrolls, Chicken Breast in a Pickled Beet Cream Sauce with Pickled Beet Mashed Potatoes, and Veal Marsala with Pearl Onions on Fettuccine Alfredo.
