Preserve

What could be better than scones spread with home-made strawberry preserve, packed with summer berry scent and flavour, or a fresh apricot preserve to brighten a dull winter's day. Even if you've never made jam before, it's a doddle with Delia's help!

Spiced Pickled PearsMakes a 1 litre jar

Spiced Pickled Pears

This unusual pickle looks impressive and tastes wonderful! Serve the pears with cold meats and poultry... they'd go particularly well with gammon or ham, and would make excellent food gifts.

 
 
Preserved Pickled PeachesMakes 1¾ pints (1 litre)

Preserved Pickled Peaches

Pickled peaches are a brilliant way of keeping that summery feeling going all year round: perfect with cold meats and especially cheeses, these bottled fruits are certain to become a yearly tradition.

 
 
Spiced Pickled Runner BeansMakes about six 0.5 litre jars

Spiced Pickled Runner Beans

Anyone who grows runner beans will know that sometimes they run away with you! If you're suffering a surfeit and don't know what to do with them, this lovely pickle is the answer.

 
 
Pickled OkraMakes two 17½ fl oz (500 ml) jars

Pickled Okra

Okra, or ladies' fingers, is an interesting vegetable often found in African and Indian recipes. Here it's pickled which at the very least will prove to be a conversation starter as it's so unusual!

 
 
Dark Chunky MarmaladeMakes seven 0.5 litre jars

Dark Chunky Marmalade

Delia describes this marmalade as the best she's ever tasted and marmalade makers should rejoice: it needs long, slow cooking so is really easy to make.

 
 
Redcurrant JellyMakes two 0.5 litre jars

Redcurrant Jelly

Delia's redcurrant jelly is adapted from a 19th-century recipe and is a million miles from the over-processed sweet version all too often found in the shops today. Try it with lamb and cold cuts.

 
 
Gooseberry and Elderflower PreserveMakes 3 x 1 lb (350 ml capacity) jars

Gooseberry and Elderflower Preserve

Was it a happy accident or nature's clever plan, that while English gooseberries are ripe and ready for picking, the elderflower trees are in full blossom, and that the flavours of the two together are superlative? Now that elderflower is concentrate

 
 
Fresh Apricot PreserveMakes 3-4 lb (1.35-1.8 kg)

Fresh Apricot Preserve

This is my mother's recipe, and every year she waits patiently for the price of apricots to come down – which usually happens in August, especially at the end of a warm summer day when whole boxes are sold off at the markets by stallholders

 
 
Pickled Limes - sponsored by Singha BeerMakes enough to fill a 0.5 litre jar

Pickled Limes - sponsored by Singha Beer

This is a very sharp, concentrated preserve which goes wonderfully with fish, especially Rösti Crab Cakes. It is also good with Baked Thai Red Curry Chicken – but because it's so strong very little is needed. To sterilise the jar, wash it thoroughly

 
 
Lemon and Lime MarmaladeMakes five 0.5 litre jars

Lemon and Lime Marmalade

This is a very refreshing marmalade, good wake-up food on a dull morning. Its other advantage is that it can be made at any time of the year. Although this does need fast boiling, the quantity is small enough for a modern hob.
