This post has been waiting a few days, I thought I better get it done before I forget about it.
Leigh over on 5 Acres and a Dream mentioned a couple of books that took my fancy.
This book I love, it has some great recipes in it, making your own pectin, condensed milk and kinds of pantry basics its not the biggest book out there but it is packed with info.
Next up is
I managed to get a used copy of this book, I think what they refer to as a still room is what I would call a pantry.
Really love some of the ideas in this book,
It covers lots of preserving techniques from curing, fermenting, bottling and drying as well as baking and cooking meals, the proper old fashioned ones.
I bought both of these books through Amazon.
Now for a disappointing book, I was loaned this book and so glad I didn't buy it.
After reading Amanda's first book I was looking forward to reading this one, I struggled to keep an interest in it, a lot was repeated from her first book, lots of harping back to the past not really a year in the life of as the title suggested, it was boring at times and really drawn out, sorry Amanda stitch to sheep and put down the pen.
I have read lots of other books this year mostly novels and must update my book page.
I seem to be doing a lot of catch ups at the moment, I have just done a craft catch up post on my craft blog.
