During the 1930's to 1960's, radio listeners across New Zealand could hear ‘Good morning everybody!’ as one of the country's most loved radio personalities came on air. The legacy of Maud Basham, better known as Aunt Daisy (and once labelled by The New York Post as “dynamo from down under"), now lives on in her cookbooks.
With over 200 tried and trusted recipes for jams, jellies, pickles and chutneys, Preserving With Aunt Daisy, compiled by her late daughter Barbara Basham, is a handy addition to any pantry. From well-known favourites, like Tomato Relish and Strawberry Jam, to preserves with a more uniquely Kiwi flavour, like Feijoa Jam and Chocko Chutney, there is a recipe in this book for everyone's tastes. A step-by-step guide to preserving at the end of the book provides some nostalgia, reminding us of a time when our food was not so convenient, and the elegant stickers for use on your preserving jars are a wonderful touch.
I found the recipes easy to follow, and the relishes I created (with Aunt Daisy's assistance) have accompanied every meal I've eaten since - delicious! The classical presentation, including 24 beautiful colour photographs make Preserving With Aunt Daisy a joy to page through. The easy-to-follow, economical recipes make the preparation of these preserves possible for everyone. Without a doubt, the most delightful part of this cookbook is Aunt Daisy's advice for preserving husbands on page 139.
Even if you are too young (as I am) to have had the pleasure of her optimistic broadcasts, Aunt Daisy's recipes are still able to impact positively upon your kitchen. This book is all you need for preserving and more, and a wonderful inspiration for kitchen enthusiasts. Preserving With Aunt Daisy will have you putting your excess fruits and vegetables to good (and tasty) use in no time.
Aunt Daisy was born in 1879, and departed in 1963. All royalties from the sale of this book go to her Barbara Basham's Trust for Medical Research in New Zealand.
