The Modern Preserver

The Modern Preserver

A mindful cookbook packed with seasonal appeal

Summary

From chutney to kimchi, from jam to gin - discover over 130 recipes for timeless preserves with a fresh modern flavour and seasonal appeal!

Preserving is an ancient technique, one that speaks to a modern sensibility. Putting you in step with the seasons, you can use up leftovers and rediscover a timeless kitchen craftsmanship - the aspiration of all thoughtful modern cooks. With The Modern Preserver, you can master this mindful approach to the kitchen as you head into the new year.

A passionate self-taught preserver, Kylee Newton takes you through every aspect of preserving: from classic chutneys and jams, through pickles and fermentation, to cordials and compotes. Here, she includes both simple recipes and immersive projects, and her recipes make stylish gifts and reassuringly natural homemade treats.

The Modern Preserver's beauty lies in wedding age-old methods with a contemporary take. Newton introduces fresh flavour pairings like Raspberry and Rose Jam and Carrot and Citrus Chutney, and her ideas come from across the world in the form of Kimchi and Japanese Pickled Ginger.

Let The Modern Preserver show you the value in a thoughtful, healthy approach to the kitchen.
