225 Classic and Contemporary Recipes
Showcasing the Fabulous Flavors of Fresh Fruits

This comprehensive guide to the craft of making sweet preserves includes 225 recipes for jams, jellies, marmalades, conserves, syrups, pastes, and more. All the recipes are based on traditional methods; none call for packaged pectin. The book is organized alphabetically by type of fruit, with an introduction to each about its history, cultivars, and growing and harvesting requirements. With its attention not only to common fruits but to others that never appear in supermarkets, The Joy of Jams has proven an essential resource for gardeners and U-pick and farmers’-market shoppers.

Praise for The Joy of Jams, Jellies, and Other Sweet Preserves:

“This terrific guide to modern home preserving has everything you need to know to put by the season’s finest. Filled with fruit delights from Apple Butter to Watermelon Molasses, this is a treasure-trove of recipes you’ll want to explore all year long.”—David Lebovitz, author of The Great Book of Chocolate and The Perfect Scoop

“Linda Ziedrich, the princess of pickling, has written another cookbook destined to be a trusty kitchen companion, dog-eared and covered with stains. Farmers’ market shoppers and U-pick enthusiasts will find all the old favorites, like great versions of raspberry jam and apple butter, and enticing new recipes like cantaloupe jam with mint, spiced sweet cherries, and sweet walnut preserves. The introductions to each type of produce are full of useful information on varieties, ripeness, and storage. Whether you’re just learning to make preserves or an experienced preserver looking for inspiration, this book is for you.”—Heidi Yorkshire, food writer, Portland, Oregon

I love your cookbooks and always recommend them to people who ask me, ‘What is the best canning book if I’m only going to buy one?’
“I say, ‘Wellll, do you want to pickle or make jam?’
“Then if they say both I tell them they need your Joy of Pickling AND your Joy of Jams, Jellies, and Other Sweet Preserves.”Brook Hurst Stephens, preserving blogger

“Linda Ziedrich’s recipes are clear, concise, and mouth-watering.”                     —James Peterson, author of Essentials of Cooking and other cookbooks
