SuperJam is a delicious range of jams and marmalades created by young entrepreneur Fraser Doherty. They're 'super' because they're made with 'superfruits', such as cranberries and blueberries, and fruit juice rather than sugar, meaning they're healthier than your average pot of jam. Fraser's cookbook is a juicy celebration of all things jammy. As well as being packed full of recipes for jams, marmalades, chutneys and jellies, the book offers more unusual ideas for spreads, such as Banana and Rum Curd, Dulce de Leche and Chilli Jam. And if for any reason you do have any leftover pots of preserves, it also contains over 25 ideas for how to turn your creations into irresistible puddings, from Bakewell Tart and Orange and Passion Fruit Trifle to Banoffee Cupcakes and Strawberry and White Chocolate Mousse. Exquisitely designed and lavishly photographed, The SuperJam Cookbook will be a lovely gift or simply the perfect way to indulge your love of one of life's greatest comfort foods.

Knitting Pearls Writers Writing About Knitting

A tea cozy will keep water hotter while steeping and the tea warm while you finish “just one more row.” Choose a wool yarn for best insulation. Dark colors, tweeds, and multicolored yarns are great for hiding drips.

“Engaging . . . tangled stories of family relationships, expectations and traditions . . . compelling, regardless of the reader’s experience with the craft.”—Portland Press Herald In Knitting Pearls, two dozen writers write about the transformative and healing powers of knitting. Lily King remembers the year her family lived in Italy, and a knitted hat that helped her daughter adjust to her new home. Laura Lippman explores how converting to Judaism changed not only Christmas but also her mother’s gift of a knitted stocking. Jodi Picoult remembers her grandmother and how through knitting she felt that everlasting love. And Bill Roorbach remembers his freshman year in college when knitting soothed his broken heart and helped him fall in love again. Other contributors include Steve Almond, Ann Leary, Christina Baker Kline, Lee Woodruff, and knitting rock stars Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed and the Yarn Whisperer, Clara Parks. With knitting patterns from renowned stores such as Purl Soho, Hill Country Weavers, and Churchmouse Yarns, Knitting Pearls is by turns delightful and heartbreaking, joyous and wise. These personal stories by award-winning writers celebrate the moments of loss and love intertwined in the rhythm, ritual, and pleasure of knitting.
