Have you always wanted to make preserves? Then this is the book for you. Perfect Preserves covers ten methods of food preservation, with easy-to-understand techniques and explanations perfect for the home kitchen. Everything from making the simplest fruit jam, to smoking a salmon, to crystallizing flowers and nuts is demonstrated in this lavishly illustrated book. Whether you want to try your hand at potting fish or preserving your own lemons for Moroccan dishes, it's all in this book. And once you've mastered the basics, you'll find delicious recipes for using the preserved foods.
The first section covers ten preservation methods, offering master recipes and definitive instructions for each technique: drying, curing, pickling, making chutney and relishes, bottling, crystallizing, makine jams and marmalades, smoking, potting, freezing and making fruit cheeses, curds and butters. The second section is devoted to a collection of great recipes for variations on the master recipes, plus recipes for using the preserves - from spiced tomato chutney, to wild mushrooms in olive oil, to orange ginger marmalade. You'll also learn the best ways to preserve certain foods, including fruits, vegetables, seafood and meat.
Perfect Preserves is also perfect for giving. Few gifts are received with as much enthusiasm as home-made foods, and jars of jams and liqueur-soaked fruits are made special wien gift-wrapped and presented with personalised messages. You will also find this book is a feast for the eye as well as the table, showing the various perserves in their natural beauty.
