Click here to read the full press release Preserving_with_Aunt_Daisy.jpg


Aunt Daisy, with her catch cry ‘Good morning everybody!’ was one of New Zealand’s best-loved radio personalities. Her cookery books have become a national phenomenon with her tried and true recipes used in every household through the years.

Preserving with Aunt Daisy is a collection of over 200 of her best-loved recipes for jams, jellies, pickles and chutneys. It includes well-known everyday preserves such as Strawberry Jam and Tomato Relish, as well as more unusual ones such as Pumpkin Jam and Pickled Pears, and recipes that are uniquely New Zealand — Guava Jelly, Feijoa Jam, and Choko Chutney. This is the perfect time of year to preserve all your left-over produce from the garden and who better to learn from than Aunt Daisy herself! This handy cookbook also includes 24 beautiful colour photographs as well as a step-by-step guide to preserving, an equipment list, and a seasonal guide.

Aunt Daisy’s recipes are simple and economical and as useful today as when they were first published. Home cooks can once again be encouraged by Aunt Daisy’s know-how and unwavering optimism. Read more>>
