First published in 1970, Beryl Wood’s classic Let’s Preserve It is the ultimate preserving bible. In this small encyclopaedia, Wood distils the immense knowledge of earlier generations into a jarful of simple, foolproof recipes that will give endless delight both to make and to savour.
With guidelines on equipment and preparation, useful hints on cooking and important tips to remember, this A-Z of recipes is an essential book for everyone from the experienced jam-maker to new cooks making preserves for the first time. Classic recipes such as mint jelly, lemon curd and Seville orange marmalade are all here, as well as more unusual combinations and ideas for preserving fruits, herbs and vegetables.
This unique and comprehensive recipe book revives the art of making jams, jellies, pickles and chutneys, and celebrates the joys of transforming a surfeit of anything – from apples to whortleberries – into jars full of sweetness.
One-pot dishes are simply the easiest way to eat well. Healthy and nutritious, they can be prepared with minimal fuss and washing up. In Easy Vegetarian One-pot, you will find an enormous selection of some of the best meat-free one-pot recipes. Lighter meals include Soups and Salads – try a Spicy Pinto Bean Soup with Sour Cream to fill the family on a cold day – and quick and satisfying Omelettes and Frittatas, such as a fresh-tasting Minted Courgette Frittatta. Pasta is also an easy one-pot dish, so choose between a classic Puttanesca or an original combination such as Pasta with Potatoes and Macadamia Pesto. Noodles and Stir-fries can be prepared quick as a flash, while satisfying Casseroles and Stews, such as a delicious Greek Summer Stew with Lemon and Olives, are easy to prepare but benefit from slow cooking. Bakes and Gratins are great for entertaining – serve a warming Baked Spinach Mornay to delight friends and family – while Rice and Grains includes delicious recipes for risottos and pilaus, amongst others. Finally, Curries and Tagines are dishes that are packed full of flavour, such as the warmly spiced Thai Red Pumpkin Curry or Three Pepper Tagine with Eggs.Whatever your taste, there is something to delight in this appealing collection.
