3.0 out of 5 stars WI Homemade Jams & Chutneys
I already own the now out of print WI Book of Preserves by Carol Tennant, which can now only be bought second hand for 20+ (shows what a brilliant book it is). I bought 'Jams & Chutneys' as a gift thinking it must be an updated version of the former, but its not at all. 'Jams & Chutneys' does include some of the same recipes as 'Preserves' and while it is a nice book,...

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't by this book if you already have jams, pickles and chutneys by same author, 12 Feb 2012
This review is from: Homemade Jams & Chutneys (Women's Institute) (Hardcover)
Disappointed to find all the recipes are same as those in earlier book by this author called Jams, pickles and chutneys, published in 2002. I assumed that as it is endorsed by the WI this book would be worth looking at but sadly this is not the case.

I choose this rating because the book had all the recipes I remembered from my mother as a child and which I never forgot.

A brilliant book that clearly explains the processes to make some really tasty treats. Very easy to follow. Once you've tried one recipe you 're looking to see what next you'll try. I've binned the other books I had, they are no longer required.

This review is from: Homemade Jams & Chutneys (Women's Institute) (Hardcover)
Thought this book would have been a lot better & more helpful as its a wi book. Have only made a couple of the jams (2) & 1 chutneys. Maybe next year it will be more useful but I don't think so
