Gardening guru Lynda Hallinan's new book takes seasonal, organic fruit from the orchard to the pantry with oodles of practical gardening advice, a fair bit of humour and loads of easy harvest recipes for homegrown, homemade preserves. A 50:50 mix of gardening know-how and recipes, Foggydale Farm Jam Sessions covers the basics of making jams and jellies just like our grandmothers used to, but without the hassle of slaving over a hot stove all summer. This beautiful hardcover book, with original watercolour illustrations by artist Lindsay Eller and photography by Sally Tagg, is packed with honest growing information and hundreds of fruit tree variety recommendations for New Zealand gardens, delivered with authority but in Lynda's signature entertaining style.
