The Jamlady Cookbook 
by Beverly Ellen Schoonmaker Alfeld
More than a cookbook, this food-preparation reference guide is a superbly informative read, with useful information on everything from the cultivation of plants and new techniques in jamming to liqueurs and cordials. While many people believe they lack the hobby time to can preserves, Jamlady demonstrates techniques and ingredients adaptable to busy households. 

For years, visitors to Chicagoland farmers’ markets have counted on Jamlady’s impressive selection of jams and jellies to add excitement to meals. This cookbook puts a dazzling array of foods often thought of as mere condiments front and center, within reach of even those home cooks with basic skills, limited time, and access to simple ingredients. 

More advanced recipes and methods teach more experienced canners the savory and sweet secrets to creating their own fine preserves. The extensive baking section and serving suggestions offer ideas on how to best showcase these preserved and enhanced flavors. Jamlady’s decades of research and experimentation have culminated in this impressive volume, destined to become a dog-eared classic in the pantheon of cooking manuals.
