Extract from Leiths website:

Learn how to preserve the autumn’s bounty in this essential master class. In this introduction to the basic principles of jam, jelly and chutney making, you will learn about selecting produce, sugar proportions, pectin, methods of testing for setting point and storing produce.

As well as an Apple and blackberry jam, you will produce a Bramley lemon curd an ‘Allotment’ chutney and an onion marmalade, and learn the secrets of making fruit leather, jellies and piccalilli. This promises to be a fruitful day for cooks of all abilities.
