I am a huge chutney fan and decided that it was time I learned to make my own! Not knowing where to start I decided a couple of books would be a good investment.

This is a great book for a novice!

The book starts with an introduction section to jars, sterilizing, basic techniques, fruit/veg/spices. The section is easy to read, informative and not too advanced or condescending to most readers. It is also not too long that people who have been making pickles and chutneys for years won't feel they have lost valuable recipe space. Plus there are a few extra recipes snuck in here too!

The main section of the book is split into sections on pickles, chutneys, relishes etc and the recipes are simply explained and easy to follow.

I have become a mad chutney maker as a result of the book reading up on what to make next!

This is a must for all chutney fans!

Although my wife is an excellent cook and I'm no mean shakes myself when she lets me loose, neither of us have done much by way of making our own pickles. We bought this book as we thought it would provide a good introduction to the various techniques and so it has proved. There is a generous amount of information to get you started, which is easy to follow and well illustrated. The recipe section contains a sufficiently broad cross-section to cater for just about everyone's tastes, and again, although we've yet to try many of them, the instructions look pretty clear and straightforward. It's just what we were looking for but, if you're already an accomplished pickler, it may be a tad basic for you.

For me this book was fantastic. I had never made chutneys or jelly preserve and it was so clear that I had no problem following the instructions. I'm hooked! A must for anyone starting out

I bought this for my partner. She has never used any cookery book so heavily and we have found some of the recipes fascinating to make and the results wonderful to eat.

Having suddenly become interested in making relishes and chutneys I sent off for two recipe books. Both arrived but I was drawn more to Catherine Atkinson's Step-by-step.Recipes for Home Preserving. Its a hardback and every page is colour illustrated with the step by step instructions and the final result. The recipes look lovely for the categories of home preserving it covers. As I say I'm interested more in chutneys at the moment. I can recommend this book for beginners especially, but anyone of any ability will find it a nice book to follow.

As Craig Revel-Horwood would say, this book is 'fab...u...LUSS darling'!! Inspirational, and excellent information with each recipe and elsewhere, which makes it great for the experienced cook but also for the beginner :o)
