What Others Say About Easy Jams, Chutneys and Preserves
I’m not much of a chutney maker usually but I’ve had to rearrange my kitchen cupboards to store all the stuff I’ve made from this book. Good, clear instructions and quite a range of things to try. A godsend in the middle of an allotment marrow and tomato glut. It would make a great present too – as do the jars of chutney! I might branch out into jam soon.
John and Val Harrison clearly know their stuff.
An informative book based on lots of practical experience and with loads of top tips, as well as a wide range of delicious recipes.
It will be in constant use, complementing John’s vegetable books!
I bought this book early in the preserving season and find it straight forward and easy to follow, it’s brilliant value for money too. I can now reliably make jam that sets!
What a book!!! From the time it arrived I haven’t put it down!
I’ve never made jams, chutneys etc. before but can’t stop now.
This book makes it so easy. Takes all the fear out of jam making.
