*this is not a paid review*
I found this absolute gem of a book at my local library and I love it so much, I NEED to order myself a copy. It’s on the budget for next month. I’m talking about Reader’s Digest Homemade.
This manual for making it from scratch has a little bit of everything with a focus on every day items you’d normally pay a bomb for at your supermarket.
Some of the recipes require specialised equipment eg: a pasta machine or ice cream machine but I guess for those truly industrious souls there will be ways around this. I’m particularly excited about the Pantry staples, pickles and preserves and home cleaning products sections. I love the fact that not only are you saving money with these recipes and ideas but you’re also in complete control of what goes into your food and cleaning products. No more harmful chemical nasties and preservatives!
If you’re new to a homemade lifestyle, DEFINITELY check out this book!
