Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's something to be said for simpler times, when our way of life was wholesome and healthy. There were less pesticides and growth hormones in our food. We were self-reliant and self-sustaining. It's easy to see why, with food costs on the rise, many people are returning to their roots-and root cellars-and finding solace in simple living. With Back to Basics: Traditional Wisdom, now anyone can:
  • Save excess fresh vegetables and fruits while maintaining texture and nutrition by preserving produce in the freezer
  • Learn different canning methods for easy cooking and cupboard storage
  • Grow fruits and vegetables in a space as small as a windowsill
  • Turn fresh fruit into jams and jellies
  • Utilize space by drying foods and creating cooking ingredients
  • Make chutneys and relishes that will be a hit at every occasion
  • Discover an economical way to preserve foods by creating a cold storage unit
  • Quench thirst with homemade beverages
  • Bring homemade wine, beer, and naturally flavored vodka to the next family gathering
  • Also learn to raise chickens and honeybees, make your own cheese, and more.
This book has easy-to-follow step-by-step illustrated instructions and detailed information about specific fruit and vegetable preparation that will enable anyone to create a truly self-sustainable lifestyle.
