Grandma's Ways For Modern Ways

Overview

This book is not about looking back with regret to former, apparently simpler times. It is about learning and using those skills that made it possible for people to live a self-sufficient, low-impact and highly satisfying life over the last hundred or so years and applying them to the complex times we find ourselves in today.

Overview

This book is not about looking back with regret to former, apparently simpler times. It is about learning and using those skills that made it possible for people to live a self-sufficient, low-impact and highly satisfying life over the last hundred or so years and applying them to the complex times we find ourselves in today.

Grandma's Ways represents a store of knowledge that we have mostly forgotten. With a little modification for these busy modern times, techniques for preserving food, keeping hens and bees, growing vegetables and fruit, making your own cosmetics and a host of other things will bring us not only closer to the products we enjoy, but closer to benefiting from the work we do for ourselves.

There's nothing more satisfying than cooking wholesome food from scratch at home, baking your own bread, growing your own vegetables, foraging in the wild and even making your own household cleaning products. Not only will you be living a more sustainable life in terms of the environment, you'll save money, too.

Meet the Author

Paul and Diana Peacock practise self-sufficiency in Manchester. They believe strongly that the way we live is changing towards making more of our own food, and even some of the goods we use from day to day. Paul has written extensively for the gardening press, edits the Home Farmer Magazine with Diana, and has written fifteen books on gardening, self-sufficiency, beekeeping, wild food, and butchering. Diana has over thirty years experience of caring for a family of five, often on a tight budget, and is the author of two books on home baking and jam and preserves.
