Rachel Saunders's The Blue Chair Jam Cookbookis the definitive jam and marmalade cookbook of the 21st century. In addition to offering more than 100 original jam, jelly, and marmalade recipes, master jam artisan Rachel Saunders shares all of her technical preserving knowledge, as well as her unique jam maker's perspective on fruit. Rachel combines nostalgia with a modern, sustainable approach to creating fresh and vividly flavoured preserves. The recipes are divided into chapters based on the seasons, and each chapter is organized by month and type of fruit. Sample recipes include Strawberry-Marsala Jam with Rosemary, Italian Lemon Marmalade, and Early Girl Tomato Jam. More than 100 stunning photographs by Sara Remington illustrate each part of the preserving process--from the different stages of cooking. Each recipe includes an approximate yield and a suggested shelf life, in addition to details on recommended equipment, including Rachel's beloved copper jam pot. The Blue Chair Jam Cookbookgives all measurements by weight rather than volume, making it the most exact and reliable jam book on the market.

More than 20 recipe variations are provided, along with detailed information about common and rare fruits, hybrid varieties, and flavour combinations. Nothing is left to chance or overlooked; Rachel explains every aspect of jam and marmalade making in step-by-step detail. The Blue Chair Jam Cookbookis a one-of-a-kind, must-have resource for home and professional cooks alike.
