DE­LIGHT­FUL PRE­SERVES

Food - - Community - Char­lene Smith­lin

As the rain was fall­ing, it was not a par­tic­u­larly nice day, so I needed to find some­thing to keep the bore­dom away. It seemed the right time to start go­ing through my ‘Do not touch’ col­lec­tion of Food­town / Food mag­a­zines. Amaze­ment was not far away when I started go­ing through them. Would you be­lieve I found many ‘new’ recipes to try? Even when you think you have tried ev­ery recipe and read ev­ery tip, it pays to look back – you’ll be pleas­antly sur­prised to see the things you have missed, and the great ar­ti­cles to re-read. So now, be­cause I never want to ruin my Food mags, I have spent not only that rainy day but the fol­low­ing weeks copy­ing loads of recipes into books. And I am only up to Novem­ber 2011! As I men­tioned, NO ONE touches my col­lec­tion with­out first ask­ing – so the thought of pre­serv­ing my mag­a­zines for grand­chil­dren, or some­one to en­joy as much as I do, sits well with me. I hope they will be tried and tested, then passed on again.
