Food writer and stylist
11 years ago I ran a tiny home-based jam, chutney and chilli sauce business, selling just once a month at Bristols Slow Food Market. My initial tentative foray into earning money from food after having my first baby proved a great success and spurred me onwards to bigger and better things. During that period, Marguerites jamming bible was a constant companion, and its well worn, splat-covered pages are still the first I thumb through when I have a glut of fruit or veg from the garden.

Goddess of preserving (and much else), Marguerite has 10 ways to preserve almost any fruit or veg you can think of. A fantastic resource, especially for 'true' preserves which will actually last on the shelf.
