    Presents from the kitchen Book 13th Aug 05 at 8:33 PM
    I picked up a lovely A4 size hardbacked book in Lidl today for £2.99. It is called Presents from the Kitchen: Preserves - Pickles - Marinades. It has got some really nice things in it, that you can either keep or give as presents.

    Chapters:

    Jams and Marmalades
    Stewed & Preserved Fruit
    Preserved Vegetables
    Mushroom, Egg & Cheese Specialities
    Chutneys, seasonings & Relishes
    Herbal Oils & Seasoned Vinegars
    Liqueurs, Juices & Schnapps
    Meat & Fish

    Well worth the £2.99. Think of all the things you can make ahead for gifts for Christmas.

    Anyone live near a LIDL's and can get me a copy? Please PM me if you can.

    Edit - Thanks Alison_B for working out the postage, @ 1kg and £3.64 I think I'll wait and see if I can find it when I getback.

    Thanks again

    Yes, I'd ask the same question as se999, I would love one of these books and would be delighted if someone could post one to me.

    Just a quick note - the book weighs nearly 1 kg - so postage would be £3.64.

    If anyone is interested, I picked up a book for £2.99 from Book Sale called "The Complete Book Of Preserves & Pickles" which covers most of what is listed above. Might be worth a look if anyone likes making pickles etc.

    ISBN 1-84477-016-8

    I contacted Alison_B about getting hold of the book for me but she won't be going back there for a while so if anyone else is Lidl shopping and is prepared to buy it and post it I'll be happy to repay the expenses
