Practical Produce

The Practical Produce Cookbooks is a complete produce manual. This is the cookbook every gardener will want on their book shelf. Published in 1997 sales have surged since 2007 for a total of over 55,000 copies sold at this point.

The idea for this cookbook came from customers at the farmer’s market where we sold our produce. After hearing people ask how to use eggplants or kohlrabi several times in one day it seemed like a logical step to put together a cookbook with recipes for all the common vegetables.

The result is a 332 page cookbook/produce manual with 34 categories beginning with asparagus and ending with winter squash. Each vegetable has its own section introduced with an original pen and ink drawing by Elsie on the divider page. Also on the divider page are some helpful planting and harvesting tips.

The sections are subdivided into recipes for soups, salads, sandwiches, main dishes, baked goods and desserts, ending with a canning and freezing guide. Included in the back of the book is a fruit canning and freezing guide.

The Practical Produce Cookbook has everything you need to successfully plant, pick, prepare and preserve your vegetables; this is truly a remarkable volume-the gardener’s cookbook of choice.

Like all of our cookbooks the Practical Produce Cookbook has a flexible spiral binding which allows the pages to be open and lie flat on
your counter while being used.
