Diana Henry has compiled the 'bible' of preserving. A book that is a must either for yourself or as a gift for someone who loves to spend time in the kitchen.
Really well presented with very clear recipe instructions and methods. My only criticism would be that not every recipe has a photograph. I find that being able to see end result photographs actually encourages me to try a new recipe.
Diana includes a list of suppliers at he back of the book as not all the ingredients and a couple of pieces of equipment might not necessarily have a home in your kitchen at the moment. One or two of her ingredients are a little exotic and either costly or hard to come by but she does also do lots of recipes for berries and other foods that grow wild along our roadside.
A favourite of mine was oven dried tomatoes from the 'In oil' section. Perfect recipe for someone that may have a bumper crop of tomatoes this season and not sure what to do with them.
Well worth a look for someone who loves spending time cooking and wants to preserve.
