Amazing recipes...I should know as I have made all of them!! (I am the author. :-) ) Funny, was Googling plum kiwi (wondering about that combintion) and noticed as I read down the jams...Gooseberry Orange...I thought, I have made that, then looked and saw it was my book! Had a chuckle and decided to leave a note. Grab this book if you can find a copy. Recipes are easy (not high volumes), latest info to help you along, awesome flavours...if I do say so myself!! You are going to love them...and so will everyone else...so hide a few jars. Working on 130 new recipes for new book out Spring 2010. New book will have all these recipes and so much more. I am having a great time creating the new ones. Just made Apricot Jam from dried apricots as I wanted top try it...added some orange juice and rind, then apricot brandy at the end. So good! Dried apricots give an intense flavour. Love to cook with fresh herbs too (my other book, Thyme in the Kitchen, not sold in U.S. Looking for a new publ.) so have added herbs to a number of recipes and going to do more. Stay tuned. Happy jammin'!!
If you want to contact me directly to suggest a new jam for the book, please put "Jam Idea" in the subject line. quisine@sympatico.ca
I'll know if anyone reads this!
