Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Here is another beautiful book from the author of the invaluable Encyclopedia of Herbs, Spices & Flavorings (LJ 11/15/92). Ortiz includes not only jams, chutneys, and pickles but also more unusual preserves such as flavored oils and vinegars. There is also a section on "finishing touches," with ideas for packaging and decorating. The gorgeous photographs illustrate both techniques and the results. A nice complement to Jeanne Lesem's Preserving Today (LJ
Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

This beautifully illustrated guide to preserving jams and relishes, flavored wines, and vinegars and oils also covers the basics of sterilizing, sealing, and storing containers. A recipe for marmalade, for instance, is depicted through step-by-step instructional color photographs showing stages of preparation and cooking. Then eight additional recipes follow--essentially variations on the same theme. A final chapter offers ideas for decorating bottles and jars to be given as gifts.

The photographs in Clearly Delicious are clearly inspired. The cover is just a temptation into visual pleasures. The age-old craft of preserving the flavors of summer is displayed in picture after picture. Glistening bottles filled with jams, fruit dripping in syrup or seduced in alcohol, luxurious oils & vinegars, spicy treats, fruit cordials, syrups,. fruit curds and many more treats await.

Some of the recipes included are:

Pear and Damson Plum Jam
Brandied Carrot Jam
Gooseberry and Elderflower Jam
Cranberry and Apple Jelly
Peach Butter
Lemon Curd
Tipsy Apricots
Raisins in Genever with Juniper Berries
Pineapple and Lime Syrup
Mixed Vegetable Pickles
Spiced Oranges
Dark Mango Chutney
Fiery Chili Oil
Rosemary Oil
Mushrooms in Oil
Goat Cheese with Herbs in Oil
Spiced Blackberry Vinegar

The "Herbs and Spices" chapter was a very pleasant surprise. Have you ever wanted to make your own Garam Masala, Pickling Spice, Quatre Epices, Five Spice Powder, Herbes De Provence, Bouquet Garni, Seasoning Salt or Barbecue Blend? Well, here are the recipes!

The last chapter is, well.....just intriguing. I have never thought of painting one of those decorated bottles. It looks so fun. If you love "craft" projects...there are quite a few. To decorate the jars, they have some very creative ideas and some that are more traditional. Presentation ideas gives ideas of how you can make mini-gift baskets.

A handy index leads you quickly to your favorite recipe. The step-by-step instructions stress the value of careful preparation so you can be assured of delicious results ever time.

One of the most beautiful "cookbooks" I have yet to see!

Enjoyed this book mostly due to the photographs. It does have alot of simple and easy, yet elegant recipes for jams and jellies that will be consumed by the average family. The label and gift wrapping ideas add a unique twist to the every day kitchen gift.

Even though I found this book at a yard sale, I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to creat some great jams, jellies, etc. Very simple and thorough. You can't go wrong even if you are a beginner!
