Making the most of your Glorious Glut is the answer to the perennial problem of an over-abundance of wonderful fruit and vegetables. From cucumbers to spinach, tomatoes to runner beans or blackcurrants to plums, most gardeners will recognize the sinking feeling that creeps over you when you realize you have had such a good harvest that you cannot actually face picking, cooking or eating any more. Even if you haven’t grown them yourself, it is easy to end up with too many fruits or vegetables after just one visit to the local pick-your-own center or a trip to a country hedgerow.
With the help of this book you will be able to make the most of any glut; as well as recipes for using fresh produce in new and exciting ways, you will learn how to pickle, preserve, dry, bottle and juice all your surplus fruit and vegetables so that they can be enjoyed throughout the year.
