I just ordered Food for Free (Collins GEM) from amazon. It looks a good book and the reviews back it up. Ill post a review when I get it. Has anyone else got it?

I also found First Steps in Wine Making by CJJ Berry in amazon marketplace for 1p!

Thanks :cooldude:
The full size one is at http://www.pheos-online.co.uk/?page_id=148&picture_id=8
I took it at Broadstairs, Kent.

I've just had an email saying my books have been dispatched. Hopefully I'll get them tomorrow.
I’m looking forward to trying out a few of the wines.

Food for free is a great book, i've got both the paperback and the gem versions. In the spring i was keeping the gem one in my bag all the time.

CJJ Berry's book is great too! So many people recommended it to me, so i boughtit from Ebay (more expensively that you!!!) and i've learnt so much from it - i've made the tea wine from it at the moment, but it gives you a lot of confidence when it comes to making your own - and lots of tips too.

I've got another book, called Country wine something... and that's a really good one. When i get home, i'll find it and post the details. It goes into more detail about making wine without adding anything at all.

Tea wine sounds interesting.

Code: Select all

It goes into more detail about making wine without adding anything at all.


Wouldn’t that be a bucket of water? :laughing6:
Sorry, I’ll go be facetious elsewhere!

On a slightly related subject; can anyone recommend a publication that lists stuff by season (as I understand CJJ Berry's book does)?

I'm in a Hunter-Gather (well not hunter since I'm vegi!) mood but would not have a clue where to start.

the country wine one has seasonal wines too.
CJJ Berry's is excellent for seasonal wines - it lists wines for every month.

Haha - you have to add fruit and sugar for the country wine one! I've heard of fermented water before, but i'm not sure it would make for very tasty wine!
