Book Description

24 Sep 2013

Jam and Preserves are well documented in our histories. The first known book of recipes, “Of Culinary Matters”, written by the Roman gastronome Marcus Gavius Apicius in the first century, includes recipes for preserves and Henry VIII was known to have a very sweet tooth; his favourite preserve was candied fruits. Preserving is part of our culture and is a perfect way to enjoy the season’s fruit and vegetable bounty all-year-round. Using the four preserving techniques shown in this book, you too can enjoy the fruits of your labour!
500 Jam & Preserves is designed to uncover the secrets behind traditional and natural preserving techniques using sugar, vinegar, oil & alcohol. You too can learn how to perfect heavenly chutney’s, crystal clear jellies, silky jams, tongue tingling pickles and melt-inthe- mouth curds. The 500 series will provide you with the skills and confidence to make your own preserves at home. This includes jams, jellies, fruity curds, fruit cheeses, relishes, pickles, chutneys, cordials, fruit liqueurs, sauces, ketchups, oil-based preserves and a variety of condiments.
Jam & preserves are here for everybody to enjoy. They make great gifts and you can pair preserves with all manner of foods from ice-cream to cheese to cakes and even casseroles to BBQ meats. Let me take you on a culinary preserving journey, by the time we’ve finished you’ll be a preserving genius!

About the Author

CLIPPY McKENNA is the founder of the Clippy’s food brand. She is an everyday Mum obsessed with preserving; her first ‘Brownie’ Scout badge was for Marmalade. Her awarding-winning business is focused on transforming the world of preserves. Clippy’s products are sold nationally in U.K. supermarkets Tesco, Asda, Morrison’s, Ocado, Harvey Nichols, E.H. Booths, as well exporting to the U.S.A. and China.
Over the past 15 years Clippy has travelled across the globe, savouring the delights of diverse cultures; from apple butter to green figs picked from Atlantic rooftops, and from bohemian cafés to camping under the stars. These memories have inspired Clippy’s taste buds to create diverse flavours such as ‘Rosy Raspberry & Apple curd’ to ‘Marinated Goats cheese infused in saffron, chilli & garlic oil’ which were created during her ‘Preserving the Nation’ cookery school tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good preserve book 14 Oct 2013
By Lora
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as I love cooking, it lived up to my expectations as it had the traditional recipes like old fashioned strawberry jam and recipes with a twist like blackberry ketchup! The book was well written in a personalised way by the author. Very good suggestions on when to use the jams & preserves with other foods.
