Overview

Fruits and vegetables are some of the most expensive ingredients of any regular menu in your home. However, with the right re- sources and planning, you can take advantage of an age-old method of storage that will allow you to buy fruits and vegetables when they are least expensive or to grow your own and store them for future use.

This book will walk anyone through the process of building and using a root cellar to store their fruits and vegetables for later use, through the cold winter months when even the most basic items can cost an arm and a leg. Before even starting your root cellar, you will learn the basics of choosing the right crops and planting them at the right time or buying them in advance for your root cellar. You will learn how to know which crops and which specific vegetables and fruits are good to keep and which ones should be left alone. This book will cover how and when to bring in the harvest and how to prepare for storage effectively. You will learn the basics of spoilage and what to expect from your foods, and you will discover what you should expect each winter for multiple- month storage.

You will also benefit from interviews with the top experts in the field of storage and root cellaring and farmers who have been storing vegetables for years. You will learn how to start your own underground garden and what various types of cellars exist — trenches, closets, and hideaways. Discover how to start planning your root cellar, how to use your basement if you so desire, and how to start excavating and preparing an outside, isolated root cellar for the first harvest. No matter your situation or your crops, you can benefit from this book and its take on the world of root cellaring and long-term fruit and vegetable storage.

    If you grow your own produce at home and you want to store food

    If you grow your own produce at home and you want to store food and save
    money during the winter months, a root cellar is an essential part of
    long-term food security. Root cellars are perfect for maintaining the
    right temperature and humidity to preserve the nutrient value of your
    fresh food. If you don’t have a root cellar and you’re not sure how to
    start building one, Julie Fryer’s book has all the information you will
    need from breaking ground to food storage. Even though you think you may
    not have room, Fryer explains that every home can have a root cellar of
    some form. The book starts out with the essential information that is
    vital for anyone considering a root cellar, such as temperature,
    humidity, ventilation and pest control. Next, it discusses various
    design options and which materials you will need. These sections are
    very helpful for readers who have little or no D.I.Y experience. This
    guide has a wealth of step-by-step instructions to help you keep your
    root cellar running smoothly, from when and how to harvest to produce
    storage charts. Fryer trumps with ten superb root cellar designs ranging
    from a floor mounted chest root cellar to an 8 foot diameter round
    culvert. The designs are well thought out and have easy to follow
    plans. The recipes from the root cellar are a nice touch at the end. If
    you are serious about safe food storage and you want to create your own
    root cellar, this is the only book you will need to successfully do so.
