    Home-Grown Harvest
    ISBN: 9781788791212
    Publication date: 01/10/2019

    More than 150 recipes for making the most of your home-grown fruit and vegetables—from warming soups and bakes to vibrant summer salads and tangy preserves.

    There is nothing as satisfying as growing your own produce—home-grown fruit and vegetables, picked and used at the height of freshness, are more tasty and nutritious than any grocery store offerings. Not only that, but they also cut down on food miles and can be a far more budget-friendly way to eat. Home-grown Harvest is a celebration of the bounty you can grow in your garden, backyard, or even windowbox. Cultivating your own fruit and vegetables does not have to mean eating the same dishes days in a row to use up produce. Instead, this book will show you how to use creatively what you grow in an array of exciting combinations. Simply organized, the book makes each vegetable or fruit the star of its own chapter, providing a wealth of different recipes to use up any gluts you may have (from the backyard or a trip to the farmers’ market). From fresh dishes such as Triple Tomato Risotto with Basil or Strawberry Tiramisu, to preserves and chutneys, which can be stored for future use, each recipe is selected because it is rich in fresh produce. With handy cross-reference lists for making dishes using variety of fresh ingredients, tips and hints for preparing vegetables, and beautiful photographs throughout, Home-grown Harvest is an invaluable guide to cooking seasonally and eating very well indeed.

  • It Starts with Fruit
    It Starts with Fruit
    ISBN: 9781452173580
    Publication date: 01/05/2020

    Jam-making gets a bad rap for being highly technical, complicated, messy, hot, and sticky. Most jam cookbooks are perceived as pretty, but too hard. This book challenges that assumption. It Starts With Fruit is an approachable preserving book from a great NorCal brand with a charming, encouraging name: Happy Girl Kitchen. Cofounder/author Jordan Champagne learned how to make jam while working on a farm, trying to use up fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. A freethinker who follows her own path and questions the status quo, she also challenged traditional preservation methods, developing techniques that are less complicated, fun rather than stressful, and more flavourful, with less sugar than many traditional methods. In this book are 5 master 'workshops' (jam, marmalade, drinks, pie fillings, and sauces & butters) and 70+ recipes for various fruit preserves, juices, syrups, shrubs, butters, fillings, chutneys, and dried and candied fruits, plus recipes for baked goods like thumbprint cookies, pocket tarts, and fruit cobbler. This package presents revolutionary techniques with a soft touch, but it’s not a myth-busting book; rather, it’s a technique-forward, beautiful, personality-driven preserving book.

  • Lemons and Limes More Than 65 Bright and Zesty Ways to Enjoy Cooking with Citrus
    Lemons and Limes More Than 65 Bright and Zesty Ways to Enjoy Cooking with Citrus
    ISBN: 9781849758062
    Publication date: 01/06/2017

    A glorious selection of dishes that all celebrate the unique sharp and aromatic burst of lemons and limes. From fresh seafood and chicken to luxurious pasta and rice dishes, and even desserts – there is nothing like these citrus fruits to make your food sing.

    A squeeze of lemon can bring a dull sauce or lacklustre soup to life as its tartness cuts through and brings out flavour in a subtler (and healthier) way than salt. Smaller, sharper but more intensely fragrant than lemons, limes work with exotic, spicy flavours. Some dishes call for the sharp, clear lift of lemon, at other times the richer fragrance of lime is more appropriate. They are both perfect as an antidote to the heat of fresh chilli or pungent garlic, the best friend of herbs and olive oil, roasting meat and freshly grilled seafood. Their brightness is also perfect in sweet, buttery desserts. Try Small Bites such as Lemon, Mushroom and Tarragon Arancini or Salmon and Kaffir Lime Fishcakes. Make the most delicious Soups and Salads with a Summer Grain Salad or Pork Dumplings in Lime-leaf Broth. Fish and Seafood offers delights like Grilled Lemon Seabass with Roasted Red Pepper and Basil Butter. Meat and Poultry is full of hearty yet summery dishes like Spiced Roasted Chicken with Chickpeas, Carrots and Preserved Lemon. In Vegetables and Sides find Oven Baked Lemon Fennel or Lime and Chilli Sweet Potatoes. In the Sweets and Drinks chapter try a Gin and Tonic Cake or a Mint and Lime Granita. Lastly, in the Sauces and Preserves section learn how to make your own Preserved Lemons and Limes, Hollandaise Sauce and Lime Pickle. Essays also investigate the history and culture of lemons and limes, their health benefits, and how to grow your own.
