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 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. Money for Jam is structured and written in an easy-to-read and easy-to-follow format. It is not a textbook – think of it instead as your trusty companion, more of a handbook or manual. It aims to reassure both prospective and current early-stage food producers.

So don’t be intimidated! Money for Jam contains everything that someone who is new to the food business 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, chocolates, and dessert makers. Oonagh Monahan has worked in the food industry for over 15 years, and with small food producers for over 11 years, helping them to start up and grow their businesses. She has worked with producers of every variety of food, everything from fudge, sausages and bread to beer and cream liquors. As one of her clients said, she is like a big sister – the person you turn to when you need advice, help and encouragement!
