Great content - not so great presentation -

I want to accentuate the positives. I bought this thanks to Sam's glowing review. I agree with him/her. There are some great recipes & tips here for all your preserve needs. Had the book been presented better I'd give it 5 stars. It loses 1 star because the pink & green text isn't easy to read. For me it's well worth the asking price.

Very useful -

Despite not having photos (as mentioned by other reviewers) I found this book incredibly useful, with good instructions and lots of interesting combinations of flavours. If you're a keen cook you won't need to know what the finished product looks like, you'll just be inspired by the ideas and rushing to get into your kitchen!

"Not rated" -

I like to see what the finished product will look like before I attempt making it. The write-up said beautifully illustrated - I don't think it is! Agree with comments of previous reviewer.

"Not very inspiring" -

Printed in pale green and purple text this will not be helpful to more mature eyes. Looks like the printer was running out of ink. It is illustrated with drawings of pans and fruit and veg but there are no pictures of the finished product making it difficult for novices even though it says it is a beginners guide. Some humorous bits. I've since bought and used a much better book from elsewhere - same price but much more inspiring.
