Whether growing fruit and vegetables at home or buying produce at farmers' markets and greengrocers we are, more and more, seeking fresh, local and honest food. But how do you make the most of produce when at its abundant, seasonal best? And what do you do with a bumper crop from your own garden? What is the best way to capture those wonderful, naturally ripened flavours so you can savour them year-round? The answers lies in the age-old, tried-and true art of preserving: Drying ; Salting ; Smoking ; Pickling ; Alcohol ; Oils ; Bottling ; Sugar ; Freezing. Pick, Preserve, Serve briefly describes these methods and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each. Organised by season, the book lists when produce is at peak condition for preserving, and provides a diverse range of recipes for preserving many of them. Author, well-known chef Chris Fortune, also includes serving tips for each recipe, as well as some mouth-watering meal ideas for using your delicious home-made products.
