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, how to keep butter, and who had a magical pantry full of secret delights. Pickling, jam making, salting, curing, rendering, cheese making – these traditional skills of preserving are in demand as more of us want to make use of home-grown produce, reduce our food budget or rediscover cooking from scratch.
Packed with fantastic recipes, this book is not only a celebration of lost skills but also advises on the best way to store food.
