The Good Book Guide Review

Preserving expert Thane Prince has turned her advice into a highly illustrated and meticulously detailed book. The glossary at the beginning does not merely define terms, it explains why some fruits and vegetables are easier or harder to preserve than others, and gives a large number of tips to the budding jam or chutney maker. For instance, it explains that bananas are high in pectin, but low in acid and should be firm when made into chutney, and that brined pickles require vinegars with at least 6% acidity (such as malt and red wine vinegars), whilst cider and rice wine vinegar should be used for chutneys instead. Whether you want to make strawberry jam, marmalade, lemon curd, quince jelly, blackcurrant cordial, pomegranate chutney or tomato ketchup, Thane Prince is the perfect tutor.
