Christine Ferber is a jam aficionado from France whose creations are distributed in small batches via the finest hotels, shops, and restaurants across Europe, bringing in over 2 million dollars a year in profit. From jam! Priced typically at 10 euros or more for a jar, her preserves are quite a luxury and highly regarded in culinary circles. Fortunately she’s released a cookbook, Mes Confitures, that details her recipes and techniques so that we can affordably enjoy her jams without having to pu ...more
Jam porn.
This book is full of recipes - you can't complain for a lack of ideas - and the ones I've made so far are delicious. However, if you're looking for instruction or some reasoning behind the recipes themselves, you won't find much here. I find myself constantly asking how to do something or why to do it the way prescribed, and there is basically no discussion on these points.

Beautiful, unusual recipes using green apple pectin so that you don't have to by commercial pectin. But . . . .

(1) not really any instructions on how to can these jams, so if you're a beginner, you will need to look on-line at the USDA web site for those instructions.

(2) no explanation as to how or why she came up with these flavor combos, and . . .

(3) quite a few of the recipes are variations of the same basic recipe, so it can get a bit boring to read the book after a while, but it is still a
3.5 stars. Some really tasty looking recipes that I can't wait to try and some recipes that ask for some produce that would be difficult to procure. There are even a few beer jellies that I really am looking forward to attempting to make.
A really beautiful book with recipes that seem straight-forward after doing the necessary prep work ahead of time. I got the few tools I was lacking and hope to make my first batch of marmelade next week! A great gift for a jam enthusiast.

Very pretty cookbook with some interesting sounding recipes. I cannot wait to try her Carrot and Cinnamon preserves.
