I was haunted by gloomy thoughts about the future, so I chased them away and made myself jam.
It's amazing how uplifting this is.
David Herbert Lawrence
The book "Marmalades and sweets" is dedicated to wonderful recipes for jam, marmalades, jellies, canning and pickling fruits and vegetables - from traditional recipes to new appetizing and sophisticated solutions for all kinds of tastes. Each recipe explains step by step the method of preparation, the required products and their quantities. A practical book with an original design, especially suitable as a gift for everyone who likes to prepare jams, marmalades, jellies and pickled fruits and vegetables at home.
In winter lies the sweet wisdom of the heart: how to preserve the present for the less favorable times of the year with the help of unique delicacies, capable of reminding us of summer colors when it is snowing outside, or spring abundance when we surround the scents of autumn. Preparing zimminina at home immerses us in the pleasant atmosphere of a ritual, perhaps worthy of the muscles of Hercules, but bringing mostly emotional and gastronomic satisfaction - especially if we use fruits and vegetables from our own garden.
And if we do not work alone, but rely on the help of the whole family, we share with our loved ones the incomparable pleasure of storing your creative impulses, your affection and your love in glass jars. To capture the atmosphere of a heated, lively kitchen filled with words, memories, jokes and banter.
Once you've tried homemade winter meat, you'll never go back to store-bought preserves.And if it is true that canned food could never compare to fresh, it is also true that at Christmas it is always better to enjoy homemade mango marmalade than to buy fresh fruit from the other side in the world, most often expensive and often tasteless.
Homemade winter meat is an excellent way to leave your personal and therefore unique mark on every dish. She is that extra element that makes it special. Raspberry jam, for example, is very tasty even just spread on a slice of bread; however, it can also become the main ingredient of a pie. And if you personally picked the raspberries while hiking in the mountains, and then washed them, dried them carefully and boiled them with sugar to get the jam, your pie will have a unique taste - a taste that comes from your very heart.
