Preserving enjoys comeback

Jam-making has staged an “unexpected and spectacular return”, according to the June 17 issue of The Mail on Sunday.
Sales of preserving equipment such as jam thermometers have risen by 17%, jam jars by 37% and jam funnels by 61% at John Lewis over the past six months, the report says.

As cookery expert Delia Smith comments on her website delia.com: “Despite the fact that there are perfectly passable jams and chutneys on our shop shelves, home-made preserves give that pleasurable edge to everyday life. There is something intensely satisfying about squirrelling away summer’s finest fruits and vegetables to enjoy on dark winter days.”
