Cookbook Club #8 Cooks for a Cure – Apples for Jam

Research Australia Cook for a Cure - Cookbook Club

This is a special edition of cookbook club for Cook for a cure. So I’m asking everyone to please go to to make a donation if you are participating. (Donations also accepted even if you’re not participating, if you like, ;) but no pressure at all!) I have chosen to support research australia for leukaemia lymphoma and other blood cancers research.

The book this month, by popular vote, is Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros.

Apples for Jam

The recipes in her book are grouped by colour. It’s a really beautiful book which reads like a collection of her favourite recipes she’s collected over the years, because that’s what it is. They are what she describes as recipes for life and food you would feed your family and friends. What I love is that her recipes each come with a little story. Sometimes just with some advice and wisdom, others a blurb describing where the recipe came from, a sister-in-law, a mother, a grandmother. I hope you enjoy this month’s cookbook club. I’ll be doing the wrap-up after August, so you have until then to send me a link to your blog post.
