The Seasonal Kitchen Companion
During the time of peas and asparagus, all the way through until pumpkins are piled on your front porch, you can munch your way through all the good things coming to harvest. And not only that – you put some of it back for winter, too. Through freezing, dehydrating, and canning, you can get your fruits and veggies all year round from the summer farmer’s market.
This isn’t one of those books that is a compendium of every single fruit and vegetable that comes to harvest everywhere. You may find that there are foods you absolutely love that got skipped right over.
That’s because this is a real look at what the author’s family actually eats, based on their personal preferences.
The book includes:
- A few fun facts (because who doesn’t need fruit and vegetable trivia)
- How to select the food at the store or market
- How to store it while it’s fresh to make it last the longest
- Some tasty ways to enjoy your fresh produce
- How to freeze it
- How to dehydrate it
- How to can it
There aren’t any exotic ingredients. The recipes are made up of whole foods, cooked simply. If you don’t have a garden, you can find this produce at your local farmer’s market or even your grocery store.
Getting these foods when they are abundant and cheap and preserving them to enjoy year-round helps keep your grocery budget at an all-time low while providing you with an agrarian-style pantry to see you through the hard times.
