Written by



10 August 2017

Who’s the author The Kilner business was founded in 1842 as producers of glass bottles and jars, but it wasn’t until the end of the 19th century that the iconic Kilner Jar was invented. Helping households across the country to pickle and preserve with its pressure seal and signature design, the Kilner Jar technology became the worldwide standard for food preserving and a kitchen staple, trusted and loved for over a century.

What’s it about A selection of 100 of Kilner’s favourite recipes that are perfect for learning to make pickles and preserves, breakfasts and lunches to take to the office, or meals that can be enjoyed on the go, The Kilner Cookbook shows you how to make the most of your Kilner products. From jams and spreads to easy overnight oats, tasty dips, quick salads and even cocktails, the recipes are colourful and inventive. For first time preservers, the book contains a helpful section with step-by-step instructions for making your first preserve, sterilising and sealing, and will also encourage you to get juicing, spiralizing, making soups and smoothies and even gifts in your jars.

Our favourite recipes Pickled Red Onion and Lime, Roasted Vegetables with Feta, Apricot Curd, and Peanut Fudge.

Who’s it for Perfect for anyone who enjoys making their own pickles, jams and preserves or who wants to learn how to get the most out of their jars. The Kilner Cookbook is also great for those looking for recipes for food that can be easily transported and that will brighten up your desk lunch.
