Book Description

17 May 2010
Making your own jams and preserves allows you to be truly creative in the kitchen so why limit yourself to bland shop-bought products when you can impress your friends and family with Strawberry and Rose Petal Jam, Fiery Tomato Ketchup or Basil Vodka? Split into the four seasons, Jam, Jelly & Relish encourages you to make the most of fruit and vegetables throughout the year when they are at their best by storing away the bottles and jars for the later months. Each season is packed with mouthwatering recipes, which are accompanied by simple ideas for how to use your jams, jellies and preserves in innovative and delicious ways. For example, why not turn your Scottish Raspberry Jam into Cheat's Raspberry Ice Cream? With Ghillie's expert advice and over 110 delicious recipes to choose from, you'll have a cupboard full of convenience foods, perfect for perking up last-minute suppers or transforming dinner party dishes.

Product Description

Review

Ghillie James's user-friendly guide to preserving summer fruits and veg contains inspiring recipes. Learn how to make everything from jam to drinks, ice-creams, chutneys, pickles and cakes. --Weekend (Daily Mail)

(Life s too short to make jam...) But Ghillie James thinks she can change our minds. And, indeed, flicking through her book Jam, Jelly and Relish on the train to her home in Hampshire, things look promising. Are there any more reassuring words, in the context of a kitchen manual, than that reviving pair 'don t panic'? James uses them a lot, combining a Delia Smith-esque voice of calm with a refreshingly modern outlook. --The Independent

This time of year can bring a glut of favourite fruit and veg in the garden, providing the perfect opportunity to transform your produce into chutneys, jams and preserves. Armed with Ghillie's book, you'll have lots of simple recipes to hand, plus inspiration for new ways to use your jars of homemade deliciousness. --Sainsbury's Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have book 28 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover
For anyone who has a garden this is a must for the kitchen. I particularly like the beetroot suggestions ! As Ghillie James says ,so many gardeners grow ENORMOUS amounts of beetroot. I am now hoping my gardening husband will be spurred into making chutney too! I intend giving this book to all my 3 daughters.I just know they will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect present for the new jam-maker 22 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover
Ghillie James says this this beautifully photographed and produced book is aimed at novices, but there is plenty in here for the experienced cook as well. Interspersed with comments about where the recipes came from and who inspired her, the book has a confident, breezy style. How do you make a whole book about preserves come alive? - Well, there are recipes for temptingly alcoholic drinks, imaginative suggestions about uses for the jellies and relishes and plenty of hints about avoiding pitfalls. She also dispels the myth that you need a mass of expensive and bulky equipment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Lovely 23 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A perfectly Lovely book, made me dash out and buy muslin to strain my strawberries. The book tells you how long the preserve will last, so no more ' chucking out to be sure.' Not only can you make the chutney but a lovely recipe to use with it. This is now my standby birthday and christmas book for all the would be perfect housewives!

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a must 22 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is a must for anyone growing their own veg and fruit. I am new to it and it has given me so many ideas of what to do with the produce. Preserving has always petrified me and this book simplifies it. I love the fact that it gives ideas of what to do with all the jars once they are made. Not only are they great recipies, the book is a joy to read with great pictures.
