Preserves, Pickles and Cures

by Thane Prince

Preserves, Pickles and Cures Synopsis

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, Preserves, Pickles and Cures 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.
