Recommendations - Books on Chutneys and Preserves


Recommended Posts

Indian Chutneys, Raitas, Pickles & Preserves by Michael Pandya (ISBN: 0722511671)

It is out of print and starting to become expensive used.

You may not want something so specifically about Indian chutneys, but this is an excellent book.


Food is all about history and geography.

I have a few to suggest:

"Spice it up: The art of making condiments" by Jeffree Wyn Lynch

"Perfect Preserves: Provisions from the kitchen garden" by Nora Carey

"The National Trust: Jams, Preserves & Edible Gifts" by Sara Paston-Williams

"Sensational Preserves: 250 Recipes for Jams, Jellies, Chutneys & Sauces" by Hilaire Walden

( the last four are not exclusive to chutneys and relishes, but have sections on them and were published in the UK)

Also, although it may be hard to find,

"Paradise Preserves Condiments of Hawaii: Chutneys, Pickles, Relishes, Currues & Sambals" by Yvonne Neely Armitage :smile:

Can anybody recommend any good books for chutney/relish making?  Preferably something that's available in the UK - but open to looking elsewhere.

Many Thanks

      I LOVE pickled ginger. In fact, in some instances, moreso than sushi or sashimi itself. When I was first introduced to sushi, it was my least favorite part of a sushi meal. Now it's the opposite.
      Besides sushi/sashimi, what other uses for pickled ginger are there? And how do you make your own? What goes in the pickling solution? Fresh pickled ginger (not premade) is undyed and a pale beige in color, whereas the premade version is a slight tawny pink.
      Any suggestions?

      What would you like to be included in a cookbook you classify as a "good cookbook"?

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?
