Whilst browsing through the cookery section in my local library, I came across "The Right Way to Make Jams" by Cyril Grange, FRHS. Having dabbled with jam and chutney making before, I decided to borrow the book before embarking on a more serious attempt.
I was impressed by the way the book is set out. Principles and methods are explained in simple, no nonsense language, and easy to follow instructions, without patronising the reader. Even quite daunting (for a novice) procedures, e.g. pectin testing, are clearly explained.
There is ample advice on which varieties or combinations of fruit and vegetables will achieve the best results. All areas of preserve making are covered, along with common problems, causes and their remedies.
With so much infomation to impart to the reader, the topic could be daunting and heavy going. This book is anything but. The authors "off the cuff" comments make you feel as if he is speaking to you personally, answering questions you have as you go along. It is much more than a "how to do" book!
I was so impressed, that I bought the book, and now feel confident that following the recipes and advice will lead to stress free preserve making in the future.

I have the original paperback version of this book which was given to me by my Mother.
I have never made jam before and found this book to be invaluable. It explains clearly and step by step how to make not only jams but chutneys,curds,fruit jellies, conserves etc.
This book is written clearly and explains all aspects in a step by step format. It has loads of information for the beginner with troubleshooting tips and contains everything that you need to know about making preserves.

I had my first copy of this book in the 1970's and original got so scruffy I had to buy another one. The latest edition quotes weights in metric as well as imperial.

The general advice is very sound, easy to follow and to understand the principles behind making jam, chutney, pickling and preserving, and there is a wealth of inspiring recipes. Not that it is necessary to follow the recipes exactly, because the explanatory sections give you confidence and knowledge to make up your own concoctions.

Anyone who makes jams, chutneys and preserves will know that the home-made version is so much better than what you can buy. This book will help you get fantastic results.

Every cook should have one!

My son gave me this little book for my birthday and at first I was put off by the seemingly pompous title, but now the book is a staple in my cookery library.

How to make Jams is written well, gives a clear understanding of what's needed to make a successful jam and what can go wrong and it is written concisely but comprehensively. It's easy to find your way around the book, as it is laid out well and though it's not filled with lush illustrations, I wouldn't be without it now I have started using it.

The book I bought was for my Dad who is coming up to 90 years old and still makes his own jams. He saw it was the one I was using and was so impressed he wanted one of his own. He had it for Christmas. It is a very comprehensive book covering much more than jams, including preserves and things called butters and cheeses, also chutneys. It includes fruits and veg that you don't normally think about using. Covering everything you need to know, from the jam pots and materials you need to the ingredients and ways to make your produce, as well as information on acids and pectins, what fruit can be used to support another if one is short on the acid or pectin and how to make your own pectin. The book also lists the points to cover if you are thinking of showing your own produce at a show. I have found it to be a really good book.

This book is a replacement for an old copy. I use several of the recipes and adapt them if I need to. My old copy did not have metric weights and it is worth noting that although the weights have been converted in this copy with metric along side imperial the word tablespoon has not been changed and an old tablespoon, as in the old copy, would have been twice the volume of a modern tablespoon

Having tried to make jam with not exactly brilliant results I bought this book after reading the reviews. The book covers everything you need to know, it also explains what might have gone wrong with earlier attempts. I still have some summer fruits in the freezer and can not wait to try again, armed with this small but informative book I don't see myself having the problems I had before.
