Five Seasons of Jam

Wild Fig at Home

Regular price £20.00

Jam cannot be rushed. These preserving recipes may be short on the page, but they're designed to stretch time, from when you first find and organise the ingredients, to when you stir the pot slowly and lovingly, then spread it on toast, and take the first magical bite. 

These innovative recipes, bubbling with fruit, nuts, herbs and spices, are separated into 5 seasons: FROST - biting, dark and cosy (Preserved Lemons, Seville Orange & Chamomile Marmalade) ALIVE - blossoming florals and awakenings (Peach & Fig leaf Jam, Salted Cherry Blossom, Wild garlic pesto) HOT - vivid sweetness (Nectarine & Flowering Thyme Jam, Strawberry & Wild Fennel Jam, Pickled Walnuts); BLUSH - smoky warmth and rich spice (Blackberry & Cocoa Nib Jam, Elderberry & Pomegranate Molasses, Tomato Jam, Marjoram Jelly) BARB - robust and bristling (Pear & Masala Jam, Pumpkin Jam, Damson Cheese).

Lillie O’Brien creates recipes to be lingered over, that inspire and give the confidence to be a little more adventurous in the preserving kitchen.
