Making the most of your Glorious Glut is the answer to the perennial problem of an over-abundance of wonderful fruit and vegetables. From courgettes to spinach; tomatoes to blackcurrants, most gardeners will recognise the sinking feeling that creeps over you when you have had such a good harvest that you cannot face picking, cooking or eating any more. And even if you haven’t grown them yourself, it is easy to end up with too many fruit or vegetables after just one visit to the local pick-your-own centre or a trip to a country hedgerow.
With the help of this book you will be able to make the most of any glut. It contains over 250 recipes for using fresh produce in new and exciting ways, and also explains how to pickle, preserve, dry, bottle or juice your surplus fruit and vegetables so they can be enjoyed throughout the year.
Jackie Sherman has written over 20 books and contributes articles to a variety of magazines. As a keen gardener and cook, she is delighted that the two can be brought together in her latest project.
"Like most other gardeners who have a fruit and vegetable plot, I sometimes wonder what on earth we are going to do with the surplus produce. Whilst we use as much as we can in the kitchen as it becomes available, this year has seen an unrivalled bounty from the garden due to the warm Spring. Most years we give away surplus to family and friends and freeze what we can, but there we usually run out of ideas. This is where the new book from Jackie Sherman, Making the most of your Glorious Glut comes in.
In her colourful new book Jackie not only takes us through a variety of methods to preserve our surplus, including simple storing, freezing, drying and bottling, but also provides us with a series of new and innovative recipes which are designed to make the most of our produce when it's at the peak of its freshness and flavour. In an attractive, well laid out paperback which uses straight forward language and is very easy to follow, we are taken step by step through a variety of preserving methods and cooking recipes which seeks to maximise the benefit from the fruits of our labours."
