If you want simple step by step instructions, lovely colour plates and, most importantly (if you're not into metric, I'm not) metric and imperial measurements, then this is the perfect book for you. The recipes are are simple to follow, using ingredients most of us have in our store cupboard. The photographs only serve to make you want to get your preserving equipment out and get cracking.I've saved the best 'til last, the pages are wipe clean.
I grow my own fruit and veg and bought Good Home Preserving by Diana Peacock which is an excellent book to learn about the various methods of preserving. I bought 65 Pickles Chutneys and Relishes to get more recipes. This is also an excellent book which provides clear and easy to follow recipes with plenty of good colour pictures
this book made a nice present for granddaughter who likes to try different things. I prefer more traditional food. Boring I know, but I have tried some of the different things she has made from these recipes and although quite nice, I'll stick to what I know
