Plant, grow, and harvest the vegetables of a century ago, and serve them up using some of the delightful traditional recipes (with modern twists) in this sumptuous heirloom cookbook and gardening guide. Replete with photographs of tomatoes, squash, carrots, beans, cabbages and many more, reminiscent of an old-time county fair, author Rosalind Creasy takes you on a tour of heirloom gardens from New England to Idaho and back to the Iowa heartland, where, Kent Whealy points out, many heirloom vegetables are native. In "How To Grow an Heirloom Garden," Creasy gives extensive instructions on saving and storing seeds from year to year. The "Resources" section of the book lists numerous sources for heirloom seeds. The "Encyclopedia of Heirloom Vegetables" section offers beets in white, deep red, and purple, as well as potatoes and tomatoes of every hue and shape. Along with the gardening techniques, the many delicious heirloom recipes include: * Heirloom Tomato Platter * Summer Squash and Corn Chowder * Cold Slaw and Hot Slaw * Mess o' Greens * Fried Cucumbers * Succotash * Candied Sweet Potatoes * Turnip Puree * Rhubarb and Strawbuerry Cobbler * And many more!
