Best cookbook for preserving fruit

peelmeagrape | Nov 26, 201404:59 PM

It's Christmas gift time and I'd like to track down the cookbook that has the best recipes for preserving fruit: canned, frozen, dried, whatever. The cookbook is a gift for someone who is utterly obsessed with fruit (the less artificially sweetened, the better) and has a new orchard. However he is not a skilled cook and does not have a lot of time to devote to the preserving process, so simple procedures are probably best. (The flavors don't have to be simple, though, he has a discerning palate.) In terms of types of fruit, he has a ton of Concord grapes, plums and pears, and to a lesser extent cherries, apples, persimmons (American and Asian), peaches, apricots, quince and pawpaws. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
