I would also recommend her other book: Blue Ribbon Preserves: Secrets to Award-Winning Jams, Jellies, Marmalades, and More. With encouragement from a family member, I used to her book, entering our local county fair last year for the very first time in my life. I entered seven of my Nana's recipes, using Linda's advice, and won four 2nd place ribbons on my first time out!!! What a great thrill!
If you try nothing else in this book, make the marmalade! I'm telling you it will change the way you think about marmalade, especially if you have never cared for it. Please try it, it rocks!!!
The author really took off with this book, and put together combinations of jams, jellies, and spreads that make for kicky, out-of-the-ordinary flavors. If you had any of these spreads at a bed-and-breakfast, you'd be begging for the recipe. So far, the Pear Lime Jam and the Strawberry Peach Grand Marnier Jam have been big hits in my house, but I want to break loose and get them to try the Apricot Amaretto jam and South Seas Marmalade too.
Apart from fruit jams, the author also explores some exciting herbal and savory jams -- the kind of fascinating side accents you find at the finest restaurants next to the pricey entrees : Basil Jelly, Garlic and Carmelized Onion Jam, Salsa Jam, and Southwest Jelly.
The book is comprehensive too, and explores curds, conserves, fruit butters, marmalades, jams, jellies and other soft spreads -- but in an inspired and fun way, never tedious or long winded.
This book is most definitely NOT just about fruit, sugar, and pectin, like some other reviewer said. In fact, I think that reviewer must have read a different book!
This book is about inspired combinations, exploring surprising and exciting vistas of flavor and taste.
I'm giving some of these wonderful new concoctions for Christmas to special friends -- savory and sweet gifts of my hand that they can enjoy through the long winter.
