Sharing is caring!

250 Home Preserving Favorites: From Jams and Jellies to Marmalades and Chutneys is a wonderful book that should be a staple in every home preserver’s kitchen.

We all know that homemade preserves outshine store-bought pretty much every time.

In this book the auther, Yvonne Tremblay, covers it all with extensive and easy-to-understand information – from the fundamentals of how to safely preserve foods, how to choose and prepare the fruits and vegetables you will be using, essentail equipment and utensils, to how to make delectable jams, jellies, marmalades and chutneys.

There is also a guide to solving common jam, jelly and other soft spread problems. With all of these innovative recipes and the step by step help, there’s never been a better time to embrace the time-honored tradition of “putting food by”.

The recipes make you want to start making jams and jellies right away, they are so delicious looking and sounding.

Yvonne includes single fruit jam and jelly recipes, luscious fruit combination spreads, mini batch recipes, wine jellies and savory chutneys and low sugar or sugar free recipes. There is definitely something for everyone in this book!

Although many of the 250 recipes have a slightly more gourmet approach, sometimes utlilizing unique combinations and less traditional ingredients, the handy step-by-step instructions enable any preserver to follow them with ease and confidence.

This is what purchasers of 250 Home Preserving Favorites have to say about the book:

Cookbook Lover writes:

“Wanting to know where my family’s food comes from and wanting to eat healthy all throughout the year, I thought I’d continue our family tradition of canning. I love making home preserves and my family is thrilled that they are able to eat fresh raspberry jam all throughout the year (they actually won’t eat any store bought jam, jelly, or chutney store since trying the recipes I made from this book).

My daughter wanted to help out, and with these simple recipes she was able to make her own batch of Lemon Blueberry Marmalade. It turned out better than mine!

The recipes are unique, tasty, and simple to follow. We’re thrilled with this book and are so happy to share it with anyone interested in making their own spreads.”

This is the review from Red Hot Cook:

“Never having done any home preserving before I wasn’t sure I’d be able to pull it off. But when I saw how easy it was using Yvonne Tremblay’s 250 Home Preserving Favorites, I knew canning was something that I’d keep doing forever.

So far I’ve created the Lemon Blueberry Marmalade, Watermelon Raspberry Jam, Tequila Sunrise Jelly and the Banana Date and Orange Conserve. There is a huge selection of recipes – as you can see, the book includes recipes for all kinds of jams, jellies, marmalades, conserves, fruit butters and chutneys.

The easy to follow, step-by-step instructions made me feel like a pro right away. Now I can capture the flavorful essence of summer all year round – as well as knowing what I’m eating! I highly recommend this book.”
