đź“ťThe Forager s Harvest Book Synopsis : Rather than cover hundreds of plants in abbreviated accounts like the typical field guide, the author has chosen a smaller selection of species to discuss in exhaustive detail, including only those plants he has eaten fifty times or more. This book contains as many as ten high-quality color photographs of each plant. These have been selected to facilitate identification and depict the plant parts at exactly the stage of growth in which they should be harvested. The accompanying text is accurate and thorough, giving readers of any experience level the confidence to harvest wild plants for food. Botanically, the text is accurate, yet it remains accessible to the layperson by using technical terms only when necessary. This book has many unique features that will appeal to naturalists, hikers, campers, survivalists, homesteaders, gardeners, chefs, Native Americans, and whole food enthusiasts. It contains a calendar of harvest times for wild produce, a step-by-step protocol for positive identification, an illustrated glossary tailored to the needs of foragers, a recommended reading list, plus special sections on conservation, safety, nutrition, harvest techniques, preparation methods, and storage. While this is not a regional guide, it will prove most useful to readers in the eastern US and Canada, the Rocky Mountains, and the Pacific Northwest.

📝Canal House Cooking Volumes Four Through Six Book Synopsis : Volumes four through six in Canal House Cooking’s seasonal recipes series, including mouthwatering dishes for the novice and experienced cook alike Canal House Cooking Volumes Four Through Six is a collection of some of our favorite recipes, the ones we cook for ourselves, our friends, and our families during the summer, fall, and right through the holiday season. They’ll make you want to run straight to the store, market, kitchen, or out to the grill and start cooking. In Farm Markets and Gardens we live in the season by shopping at farmers’ markets and roadside tables, and gathering the very freshest vegetables from our own gardens. Join us as a “salt-and-pepper cook,” making simple yet intensely flavorful dishes such as tomato salad and berry cobbler. In The Good Life we toast the good life and cook lots of big, delicious food. We turn out classic pâtés and terrines; top buckwheat blini with smoked salmon and trout roe; tuck black truffles under the skin of our roasted chicken. We fry apple fritters in the fall and decorate sugar cookies for the holidays. Finally, good cooking relies on good shopping, so in The Grocery Store we buy smoked fish to make a delicious creamy stew. Bunches of fat local asparagus go into our shopping cart—we cook them simply and bathe them in a luscious lemon-butter sauce. We choose hearty escarole and tender young spinach and stock up on bags of frozen peas and fava beans to use in so many ways. We buy succulent rhubarb for an early spring tonic or for an Easter dessert, roasted and spooned over crisp meringues.
