Recipes

Welcome to my world of preserving.  This collection contains recipes to suit every taste, from the sweet and luscious, hot and fragrant through to wonderful tongue tickling salty and tangy flavours. 

With recipes for beginners as well as those ready to step up to the next level, it contains classics as well as artisanal preserves. 

Adding vibrancy, diversity and sustenance, life is better with a preserve on the table.  Delve into the art of preserving and if you have any questions or need more information, I would love to hear from you.
