I confess I love the idea of jars of homemade jam lining the pantry shelves and this book motivates me to try some of these recipes by Rachel Saunders, owner of Blue Chair Fruit, a San Francisco area artisan jam company. Filled with colorful photos (always appreciated), this book includes recipes for jams plus jellies, marmalades, preserves, and conserves. The recipes are divided into chapters based on the seasons. There are classic recipes for things like strawberry jam along with unique offerings such as Strawberry Jam with Aged Balsamic & Black Pepper, Italian Prune and Cardamom Conserve, Rhubarb and Red Cherry Jam, and recipes using a fruit called Aprium which is a cross between plums and apricots, something I had never heard of. Each step of the preserving process is covered so even beginners should be able to have success with the recipes. It should be noted that some measurements are given by weight rather than volume to ensure reliable results so a kitchen scale is needed.

Oven canning has been proven dangerous because of the risk of shattering glass as heat changes, and also because experts say the dry heat is not able to penetrate to the very middle of the jam. The recipes are inventive, but disappointingly push the reader into using hard-to-find fruits for most Americans. But she makes me long to move to California, if only for the canning season! Book would be lots better if the canning practices prioritized food safety before short-cuts.

I was angry-disappointed with this book - it will not stay on my cookbook shelf. I have been making jam for years and after reading a review, looked forward to receiving this book expecting to find good reference material. But I found it disorganized, filled with lots of meaningless pictures, faint, too-small font which was difficult to read, printed on unnecessarily heavy paper making it too cumbersome to use in the kitchen, etc.. Maybe this book was intended as a coffee table book not as a cookbook.

When I got this book today I was sooooo Pleased. I wasn't expecting the quality of book that was in the box, I thought I would get a few pages with a few recipes. Instead I received a 384 page book with everything I need to know to make the best Jams and Marmalades. This is a book that I will treasure for years to come and one that will be passed down generations to come ~smile~ I've been canning for years and this book is a welcome addition to my recipe books if not one of the best that I will have. Thank you Rachel for all you experience and Recipes. You will not be disapointed with this book...~smile~ I promise ~

My granddaughter and I make jam together. I am looking forward to summer fruits in our area so that we can try out the luscious looking recipes. This book promises hours of bonding time and a winter of yummy jam.
