Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Alfeld (The Jamlady Cookbook) provides the reader with extensive, detailed instructions on how to make numerous variations on pickles, relishes, and chutneys. She refers throughout the text to "Jamlady," the name under which she publishes a newsletter, and markets her own products at Chicago-area farmers' markets. A personal tone pervades the entire volume, with historical asides and opinions peppered throughout, and Alfeld encourages readers to research and experiment rather than simply use the text as a "copy book." Some may find this commentary extraneous; others are sure to be charmed. Either way, this thorough recipe collection provides the necessary foundation in processing and canning techniques, as well as information on pH levels, and for the novice or expert picklemaker, appendixes with more sources of information and a list of annual pickle festivals or events. Recommended for most public libraries.
