'Pam "The Jam" Corbin, a giant of modern fruit preserving' The Times
About the Author
Pam Corbin has been making preserves for as long as she can remember, and for more than twenty years her passion has been her business. Pam and her husband Hugh moved to Devon where they bought an old pig farm and converted it into a small jam factory. Always using good, wholesome, seasonal ingredients, their products, sold under the Thursday Cottage label, soon became firm favourites with jam-lovers the world over. Pam has now hung up her professional wooden spoon but continues to 'jam' at home. She also works closely with the River Cottage team, making seasonal goodies using fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers from her own garden, from Park Farm, and from the fields and hedgerows.

Mind you, i doubt that Her Indoors will be impressed. I am not really good about amounts or portion control.
Still, we will probably be able to survive the first couple of years of the Zombie apocalypse on chilli jam alone (not IF it happens - WHEN!!!)
This book has everything, not just a ton of fabulous preserve recipes- information on the seasonality of fruit, methods for sterilising jars, how to find the setting point of fruit... the list is endless. It's explained simply, but is quite wordy- but it's very well done regardless. I must also add that I've just made some strawberry jam from this book and its the best I've ever tasted! I can't wait to try more of the recipes from in here. I'm so impatient for my tomatoes to hurry up and grow so I can make some homemade tomato ketchup next!
If you're curious about how to make your own preserves then you have to buy this book- no question about it.
**Edit** I have now had this book for more than a year and it has not let me down once. I have successfully made marmalades, chutneys and jams of all varieties as well as sloe and damson gins and all have been a success- utterly delicious. My friends and family enjoy being the recipient of these kitchen experiments- particularly with the fruit jams, and are forever donating me jars! This year I will be giving away homemade preserves as gifts in hampers which proves my level of confidence in the recipes in here. I really cannot recommend this book highly enough. Well done Pam The Jam!
