PublisherOak Tree Press

Have you ever thought about trying to earn some money from producing food? Are you the person everyone goes to for their lemon meringue pies, apple tarts and other desserts for family occasions, christenings or other events? Do you have a garden of rhubarb or other fruit? Do you make jam every year and give it away when you could be selling it? Do you fancy the idea of making cheese or yogurt or ice cream but don’t know where to start?
If so, then this is the book for you – it will tell you everything you need to know or show you where to find it for yourself, with lots of case studies of successful food producers.
This revised and updated third edition of MONEY FOR JAM contains everything that someone who is new to the food business in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Great Britain will need to get started and to keep going. It will help bakers, jam and honey-makers, ice cream, yogurt and cheese-makers, egg producers, sausage roll, pie and pastie-bakers, chocolatiers, and dessert-makers. It covers the what, where, who and how for small food producers – including legislation and registration, labelling and packaging, suppliers and distributors – in an easy-to-read and easy-to-follow format.
And it includes a new chapter on vegan and plant-based foods.
