Overview

It is one thing to produce tomatoes or pumpkins—or any other fruit or vegetable for the table, as they come into season, but it becomes another when you realise that most crops in the garden arrive in gluts with no more to be had for another, unless you do something about it. This book is about how to make the best use of your highly nutritious, home-grown produce. The first part begins in the garden, showing you how to achieve a more continuous crop as well as how to extend your harvest. Then Bob steps into the kitchen to show you the best way to preserve and cook your crop by bottling, drying, jamming, smoking as well as how best to store it. He uses his intimate and comprehensive knowledge of each crop to advise you on how best to treat them—make fruit leathers, which are great for kids; freeze your own apple juice so you can have it every day of the year; experiment with making liqueurs and wines; preserve nuts in chocolate and many many more ingenious ideas.
