Preservation Society is a very personal, very particular preserves company. Its founder, Camilla Wynne, creates recipes filled with imagination and heart. Her mandate at Preservation Society is to use as much local produce as possible. Her recipes are amusing, creative and simply mouth-watering. Her experience working with top chefs and pastry chefs is reflected in each recipe. With gorgeous, full color throughout the book, each recipe is unique, such as the one inspired by the French Revolution (French Revolution 1779). Others are Strawberry Margarita Jam, Banana's Foster Jam, Sour Cherry and Vanilla Jelly and Malt Pickled Cauliflower. The 100 recipes use simple techniques and easy-to-find ingredients. Camilla Wynne cleverly mixes the classics with modern creations, sometimes inspired by cocktails. Besides the sumptuous jam, jelly and marmalade recipes, there are recipes for syrups, marinades, chutneys, conserves, as well as a dozen recipes that use the original preserve recipe. A beginner or a seasoned pro will be comfortable making these recipes that feature reliable, easy-to-follow, up-to-date preserving instructions and information.
