My Old Faithful

My old faithful preserves book has fallen apart due to its constant use.  So I have just spent the last hour or so threading the pages into plastic sleeves with the intention of putting all the pages into a Lever Arch folder.  It has proved very useful over the years and is a good one to get hold of if you are new to preserving.  It is called Home Preserves by Jackie Burrow and was a Marks & Spencers publication.  There is no ISBN no as this book predates that system.

Put it this way this is one book I would not be without as it covers all kinds of preserving..  Hence me going to all the trouble to keep it even though in plastic sleeves.

Right on to the next job.

Catch you later.



P.S.  Have just done a search here,DWAZCv5hjWSTE_1497963026_1:1:1&bq=author%3Djackie%2520burrow%26title%3Dhome%2520preserves

There are some copies available look to the second column where the prices are cheaper.

Hope this helps.
