Preserving is an ancient technique which speaks to a modern sensibility. It puts you in step with the seasons, you can use up leftovers, and it helps you rediscover a timeless kitchen craftsmanship - all aspirations of the thoughtful modern cook.
The Modern Preserver takes you through every aspect of preserving- from classic chutneys and jams, through pickles and fermentation, to cordials and compotes. It weds age-old methods with a very contemporary feel. There are fresh flavour pairings like Raspberry and Rose Jam, and Carrot and Citrus Chutney. There are ideas from across the world like Kimchi and Japanese Pickled Ginger. And there are more than 130 creative and unique recipes, be it for Strawberry and Lavender Gin or Roasted Red Pepper Ketchup.
Kylee Newton is a passionate self-taught preserver with stalls at London's Broadway, Maltby Street and Peckham markets under the name Newton & Pott. Here she includes both simple recipes and immersive projects, and her recipes make stylish gifts and reassuringly natural homemade treats.
