Publisher Comments:

Come Home to the Country Kitchen!

"...a treasure trove of folksy tips, homey recipes, and guides for forgotten chores like making butter and sour cream, alongside recipes for salsas and chutneys. Inside is something for everyone." (Susan Herrmann Loomis, Author of Farmhouse Cookbook and Proprietor of On Rue Tatin Cooking School)

"...full of intriguing, country recipes from our past (consider making you own goat cheese) and easy-to-read charts, as well as the satisfying rural cuisine that we have come to respect and love. I am eager to try Hibiscus Tea, Johnny Appleseed Cake, Crispy Fried Squash Blossoms, and the Zucchini Parmesan Jalapeno Flatbread. A great book for either a beginning or advanced cook." (Marcia Adams, Author of More Recipes From Quilt Country and Producer of PBS's Marcia Adams' Kitchen)

Recipes include Mimi's Sunday Pot Roast, Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes, Daddy's Banana Pudding, Perfect Grilled Vegetables, Peach Cobbler Ring, Aunt Ina's Relish, and hundreds more!

Martha also shares techniques for such things as making cheese, preserving food, pulling taffy, baking bread, and making pies and ice cream.

Virginia Campbell, September 18, 2011 (view all comments by Virginia Campbell)
If you are searching for a book to give a novice cook, or for a new addition to a seasoned cook's collection, "500 Treasured Country Recipes" will delight them both! While the book is written in a warm, down-to-earth style that feels like home, it is much, much more than a "country" cookbook. It is really a hefty, charmingly illustrated, all-inclusive volume of cookery, crafts, housekeeping, gardening, and useful advice. Written by Martha Storey and friends (an impressive roster of talent featured as contributors at the book's end), this expansive resource of recipes and more offers tempting treats to please every palate. On the savory side, you'll find dishes like "Zucchini with Mozzarella and Parmesan", which begins with bacon, onions and garlic sizzling in the skillet. "Southwestern Cranberry Sauce" blends the flavors of fresh cranberries and jalapeno peppers, and refines them with sugar and seasonings. "Onion & Mushroom Gravy" made with rich pan drippings, onions, mushrooms and seasoned stock may cause you to forgo a formal meal and stand at the stove dipping chunks of bread into the gravy pan. The desserts are delicious, decadent, and downright divine. Try to resist "Soul Satisfying Rice Pudding", "Baked Bananas in Maple Rum Sauce", or "Blueberries Romanoff". I won't even try to resist--I surrender! You'll also find detailed, illustrated instructions for making butter, cheese, beer, wine, and even soda pop. If you're a crafter, you'll really enjoy the sections featuring handcrafts, holidays, and homemade gifts. I don't have enough words or review space to detail all that this wonderful book has to offer. I will just say that it is indeed a "treasure", and you will reach for it time and time again.
