Making the Most of Seasonal Vegetables, Fruit and Flowers.
Traditionally a method of keeping and enjoying food beyond its season, pickling and preserving are skills that have been handed down through the generations. There is still nothing more satisfying than filling your pantry and cupboards with your own homemade preserves; pungent chutneys, piquant pickles, luscious jams, cool, delicate jellies and tangy spiced vinegars.
All kinds of ingredients are used, from the end of summer green tomato in a traditional chutney to the exotic candied starfruit, or tangy limes in Hot Lime Pickle. Alongside the much-loved Strawberry Jam, Marmalade and Piccalilli are unusual recipes such as Spiced Pears and Scented Geranium Leaf Jelly.
Herby butters, spiced mustards, scented oils and vinegars also feature in this book, bringing you a wealth of preserves that are easy to make, satisfying to keep and, most of all, delectable to consume.
