It Starts with Fruit

Simple Techniques & Delicious Recipes
Jam-making gets a bad rap for being highly technical, complicated, messy, hot, and sticky. Most jam cookbooks are perceived as pretty, but too hard. It Starts with Fruit challenges that assumption with Jordan Champagne’s more approachable, fun, flavorful and low sugar preserving techniques. For years, Champagne has been sharing her unconventional methods for making fruit preserves in her workshops at Happy Girl Kitchen in Pacific Grove, California but now readers can learn her secrets from the comfort of their home kitchen.
