  • Sandra

    just had my first read through and I'm impressed :) lots of ideas of what to do with tins, lots I want to try especially the soups and the chocolate cherry fudge :)

    chapters are

    breakfast + brunch

    soups

    beans

    potatoes

    pasta

    fish

    meats

    puddings

    it has a comprehensive index for such a small book so hopefully that will increase your ability to find what you want quickly.

    I was also surprised by the nutritional information the book begins with, listing various things you can buy tinned.

    overall so far I think

    overall so far I think it's a great addition to anyone's cookbook collection as during a lifetime there's always a time when you need to tighten your purse strings to save money but you still need to eat and this book will help with that :)

    Update : - )

    Made the carrot cake overnight oats recipe using drained can of sliced carrots and amazed it tastes like carrot cake : ) but more importantly has 2 of your 5 a day in it : )

    also my larder is now full of tins n jars of paste for my next recipe try outs : )

    Update : - )

    Made the cockles spaghetti for tea this week as I was curious, used to have cockles when I was a kid :) so sent hubby off for a jar from waitrose and was pleasantly surprised, they weren't chewy but soft and the bursts of vinegar in your mouth when eating the finished dish was surprisingly yummy, second portion I fridged overnight n nuked the next day and although not as saucey it was still delish, will definitely make again and it didn't make the kitchen smell of fish :)

    got the ingredients for trying the fudge recipe next :)

    Update

    I made the fudge but did rum n raisins as the favouring but made mine on stove top, really yummy.

    also made a version of her crumble using tinned apples from Morrison's and it was really nice, in all the years of making Apple crumble I've always used cooking apples so using tinned apple slices is a good quick hack. :)

    also last night made the spicy rice and 2 bean soup, only I used the bag of 3 mixed peppers and an onion as they wanted using. I added extra water n extra paprika and was again pleasantly surprised how nice it was. had leftovers nuked for lunch today and it was more like a risotto, thick, filling, tasty n comforting on a very rainy day.

    so all the recipes I've tried so far have been really great n there's still lots I want to try :)

    This is a small book that packs a punch. Don’t be deceived by the frugal paper and lack of images, the recipes are practical, well written, and enticing. The variety and creativity is astonishing. I like to ‘read’ cookbooks as well as cook from them, this delivers on all counts!

  • Gem

    The first cookbook that I have read cover to cover, and so I am going to count it towards my goal for the year!

    #TinCanCook includes plenty of ideas to jazz up your tinned food, interspersed with tips that I found super useful. I also valued the odd glimpses into Jack Monroe’s own experiences with depression and struggling to make ends meet.

    I love that this book has been produced without the hardcover and glossy photographs that usually hike the price up. At £6.99 RRP it’s a much lower price in c

    Perfect for people in need of inspiration at minimal cost or time - this book would also make a great donation to Food Banks.

    It often feels frustrating that foodbanks have to specify non-perishable donations but Jack Monroe, erstwhile Foodbank recipient, has taken a sow's ear and made a silk purse from it that will be useable by all kinds of people. The dishes are filling, interesting and on the whole healthy (certainly no less healthy for being based around tins I've not hung onto this book because the book has been designed to be cheap to buy and buy it I shall.

    We all have those random tins in our cupboards or keep bypassing those tins of coconut milk or tinned vegetables. This book I was a little dubious about but found myself bookmarking things I wouldn’t of thought of. Great imagination and thought has gone into this. Will be trying out many recipes in this book even though I’m usually a more from scratch cook.
