Let's Preserve It by Beryl Wood contains 579 recipes for preserving fruits and vegetables and making jams, jellies, chutneys, pickles and fruit butters and cheeses.

This unique and comprehensive recipe book revives the art of making jams, jellies, pickles and chutneys, and celebrates the joys of transforming a surfeit of anything - from apples to whortleberries - into jars full of sweetness.

First published in 1970, Beryl Wood's classic Let's Preserve It is the ultimate preserving bible. In this small encyclopaedia, Wood distils the immense knowledge of earlier generations into a jarful of simple, foolproof recipes that will give endless delight both to make and to savour. With guidelines on equipment and preparation, useful hints on cooking and important tips to remember, this A-Z of recipes is an essential book for everyone from the experienced jam-maker to new cooks making preserves for the first time. Classic recipes such as mint jelly, lemon curd and Seville orange marmalade are all here, as well as more unusual combinations and ideas for preserving fruits, herbs and vegetables.

Please note that this book uses traditional food preservation methods. You will not find water bath or pressure canning recipes here. 

This book is organised as follows:

  • Introduction
  • Equipment and Preparation (basic equipment, general preparation and cooking hints, pectin - its important and use)
  • Points to Remember (for jam-making, jelly-making, chutneys and pickles, fruit butters and cheeses, drying)
  • The A-Z Recipes for Preserving Fruits and Vegetables.
