An Ashmead’s Kernel apple strokes the taste buds with its honey spice with a dash of lemon flavor. Nuanced salty sweet with myriad undertones  flood large slices of mahogany Black Krim tomatoes from Russia. Consumers seek these tasty and colorful treats in the autumn at apple orchards and frequent farmers’ markets where they search for fruits and vegetables with more flavor, color and complexity than those in a grocery store.  Author Doreen Howard captures the rich flavors of eighteen heirloom edibles in Heirloom, Vegetables, Herbs, and Fruits. This artistically photographed book highlights the splendor of heirloom edibles, their heritage, their flavor, their benefits, and their numerous varieties.   Planting, growing, harvesting,and seed-saving information are also included. This book is also written to inform and inspire gardeners to preserve the pure, rich flavor of the past for the benefit of future generations.   

 

 

Synopsis:

How long has it been since you’ve really tasted good food, since you’ve eaten any vegetables or fruits that even have flavor?
 
From tasteless tomatoes bred to withstand shipping to apples that have crunch but nothing else, we’ve had to eat what was available to us.
 
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Everyone—not just foodies—is demanding a return to flavor. Whether you grow your own or shop the farmers’ markets, you will be amazed at how flavorful heirlooms are.
 
You have a choice. Heirloom Flavor takes you into the delicious world of heirlooms, where you can savor the rich flavor of the past.

Synopsis:

Heirloom vegetables, herbs, and fruits are back in favor as gardeners and food lovers seek more nutritious and flavorful edibles. The unusual varieties of heirloom seeds still available today produce edibles that provide a mouthful of flavor unlike anything ever experienced from hybrid varieties. Heirloom Flavor features eighteen types of heirloom edibles and is enriched with beautiful full-color photographs, interesting stories, and fascinating history. Includes recipes and cooking tips, how-to-grow tips, and how-to-select at Farmer's Markets. A "must have" for foodies and cooks.
