Publisher Comments:

Not your grandma’s jam book, Blue Chair Fruit: Jam, Jelly and Marmalade is the definitive jam book of the 21st century approaching the nostalgic preserving kitchen with a modern sustainable eye. Author Rachel Saunders is the owner of the Bay Area’s artisanal jam producer, Blue Chair Fruit.

Rachel Saunders's The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook is the definitive jam and marmalade cookbook of the 21st century. In addition to offering more than 100 original jam, jelly, and marmalade recipes, master jam artisan Rachel Saunders shares all of her technical preserving knowledge, as well as her unique jam maker's perspective on fruit.

Rachel combines nostalgia with a modern, sustainable approach to creating fresh and vividly flavored preserves. The recipes are divided into chapters based on the seasons, and each chapter is organized by month and type of fruit. Sample recipes include Strawberry-Marsala Jam with Rosemary, Italian Lemon Marmalade, and Early Girl Tomato Jam.

More than 100 stunning photographs by Sara Remington illustrate each part of the preserving process--from the different stages of cooking to testing for doneness to the final canning stage. Each recipe includes an approximate yield and a suggested shelf life, in addition to details on recommended equipment, including Rachel's beloved copper jam pot. The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook gives all measurements by weight rather than volume, making it the most exact and reliable American jam book on the market. More than 20 recipe variations are provided, along with detailed information about common and rare fruits, hybrid varieties, and flavor combinations. Nothing is left to chance or overlooked; Rachel explains every aspect of jam and marmalade making in step-by-step detail. The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook is a one-of-a-kind, must-have resource for home and professional cooks alike.

When I first started sampling Rachel Saunders's jams at a local farmers' market a few years ago, I thought, "Wow! I wish I could make jam like this!" Today, I have no exccuse not to; Rachel's book is full of recipes for the luscious jams I fell in love with at the market. And I can make jams for every season, so whether I have quince or kumquats or greengage plums (my favorite!) on hand, I can follow her wonderful recipes which are accompanied by rich, gorgeous photos. I love knowing I have access to Rachel's secrets, but I'll still have to drop in on her stand once in a while to see what new delights she has cooking.
