Sue Baker's view...

A valuable book in our constrained times, showing us old skills, thrifty ways with food and how to make some kitchen staples such as sausages, yoghurt, condiments, preserves, cakes and cereals. Above all, Thane Prince conveys the enjoyment and satisfaction of being able to create anything from home-made ketchup to a tin of biscuits. Having dabbled in these arts myself I can attest to the pleasure of viewing a cupboard full of preserves, embarking on winter knowing that some of summer’s delights are stored away for the dark days to come is one of the biggest joys of being a cook.

The Lovereading view...

A timely book for the new kitchen revolution, Ham, Pickles and Jam is not only a celebration of lost skills such as curing, rendering and pickling and a collection of fantastic recipes, but also provides advice on stocking a cupboard or pantry and the best way to store cheese, cooked meats and vegetables.

Synopsis

Ham, Pickles and Jam : Traditional Skills for the Modern Kitchen Larder by Thane Prince

Many of us remember jams and chutneys made by grandmothers and great aunts who also seemed to know exactly how long to boil a ham and how to keep butter, and who had a magical pantry full of secret delights. These skills are increasingly in demand as more of us want to make use of home-grown produce, reduce the weekly food budget or rediscover cooking from scratch. A timely book for the new kitchen revolution, Ham, Pickles and Jam is not only a celebration of lost skills such as curing, rendering and pickling and a collection of fantastic recipes, but also provides advice on stocking a cupboard or pantry and the best way to store cheese, cooked meats and vegetables. At a time when we are all looking to shop more locally, cook thriftily and still enjoy great food, it is a book for how we live today.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
