"Saving the Season: A Cook’s Guide to Home Canning, Pickling, and Preserving," by Kevin West (Alfred A. Knopf; $35, 220 recipes) » Pleasant surprises await, in the book’s unusual recipes and in the author’s pectinlike ability to find the right set for blending food lit, essays and smart seasonality.

"Southern Living Little Jars, Big Flavors: Small-Batch Jams, Jellies, Pickles, and Preserves From the South’s Most Trusted Kitchen" (Oxmoor House; $21.95, 110-plus recipes) » Bright and good for beginners, this book has solid recipes, thanks to the expertise of Southern cookbook author Virginia Willis. Check out the chapters on "putting-up parties"; they are downright neighborly.

"Put ‘Em Up! Fruit: A Preserving Guide & Cookbook," by Sherri Brooks Vinton (Storey; $19.95, 160 recipes) » Its use of enthusiastic punctuation ("Use It Up!) gets heavy-handed somewhere between the chapters on cherries and cranberries, and the photography looks dated. But process shots are helpful, and the recipes span a range of sweet and savory.
