The cooking skills of CWA members are legendary and Country Women's Association Preserves includes more than 90 of their recipes for classic, country-style preserves. There are relishes and chutneys, pickles and sauces, jams, jellies, conserves and marmalades. Preserves make wonderful homemade gifts, and are a great way to make the most of seasonal bounty. Many of the recipes here are family favourites that have been handed down through generations, while others have been passed from friend to friend. All the recipes use simple ingredients and are simple to make, yet have the indelible stamp of CWA sense and sensibility.

About The Country Women's Association
The Country Women's Association of Australia has long been renowned for its work in support of rural families and communities, and for its members' cooking and catering. Their baked and bottled goods are must-see exhibits at local shows, and there are always long queues for the 'tea and scones' and other treats they serve up at many public functions. Their catering activities have made a huge contribution to the CWA's fundraising efforts. Now the CWA is sharing its secrets, in this brand--new series of cookbooks. There are tried-and-true recipes from CWA branch members all around Australia, so you too can turn simple ingredients into delicious and nutritious dishes that will please everyone at your table. Royalties from this series will help the CWA continue to fund a postgraduate scholarship for a health-care worker in a rural or remote area.
