Aunt Daisy was one of New Zealand's best-loved radio personalities. Her cookery books have also become a national phenomenon with her tried and true recipes used in every household through the years.

Preserving with Aunt Daisy is a collection of over 200 of her best-loved recipes for jams, jellies, pickles and chutneys. It includes well-known everyday preserves such as Strawberry Jam and Tomato Relish, as well as more unusual ones such as Pumpkin Jam and Pickled Pears, and recipes that are uniquely New Zealand - Guava Jelly, Feijoa Jam, and Choco Chutney. This handy cookbook also includes 24 beautiful colour photographs as well as a step-by-step guide to preserving, an equipment list, and a seasonal guide.

Aunt Daisy's recipes are simple, practical, economical and as useful today as when they were first published. Now, home cooks can once again be helped and encouraged by Aunt Daisy's know-how, practicality and unwavering optimism.
