REMEMBER… ➽ Choose the right jar for the job. For example, jars with a small opening and narrow neck are ideal for fruits in syrups, while widemouthed, straight-sided jars are good for chunky preserves. ➽ Run all the jars, lids and tools through the dishwasher to sterilise, or warm jars in a low oven for 20 minutes and boil lids and seals in a saucepan of simmering water until needed. ➽ For a good seal to occur, both jars and lids must be hot, and the filling almost simmering. JAM & MARMALADE ➽ Jam requires pectin to set. Some fruits, such as citrus, are high in pectin, others, including apricots, are low, with levels decreasing in riper fruit. Most fruits can be made into jam by either adding pectin in the form of a squeeze…

fix yourself a treat!

If you have a weakness for nut butter, you’ll know all about Fix and Fogg, the Kiwi company launched by two ex-lawyers who now produce award-winning deliciousness from their Wellington factory. The name is a nod to two characters in the 1873 adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days, Phileas Fogg and Detective Fix. The story’s theme of embarking on a great journey and taking risks along the way resonated with founders Roman and Andrea Jewell when they decided to create artisan butters. Teaming up with Fix and Fogg, we have two great packs to give away, each worth $80 and featuring some of their most delicious creations, including peanut butters in dark chococlate, coffee and maple and fruit toast flavours, as well as a tote bag. To be…

Whenever I fry fish, I can never get the skin to go crispy. Is there a trick to doing this? There’s nothing like crispy skin, be it chicken, pork or fish!

Standard greaseproof paper isn’t non-stick, but it is refined to have a non-porous quality known as glassine – think of the wrapper on a block of butter; it’s probably closest to the paper your grandma used and is ideal for wrapping greasy and…
