The Complete Root Cellar BookDisclosure: ItsJustMyLifeCA received products for this review. All opinions, however, are honest and my own.
Creating a root cellar may seem like a simple concept and easy to do. This year we are planning on growing our own vegetables in the garden and I want to make sure I preserve the fruits of our labour properly so that we can have the benefit of them in the winter.
This book takes you from building a root cellar to filling it full of the bounty of the season. It is a wonderful resource for those wanting to know how to make a root cellar and product to go in it.
The Complete Root Cellar Book
Building Plans, Uses and 100 Recipes
by Steve Maxwell and Jennifer MacKenzie, Paperback,
The Root Cellar Book provides technical information on using photovoltaics (solar cells) and other energy technologies to enhance a root cellar's performance and ecological sustainability. It also includes must-know information on how to choose, store and manage a supply of fruits, vegetables, nuts and preserves.
The book features 100 recipes that call for stored produce, many of which also make use of the root cellar's specific environment, such as sauerkraut and barrel-fermented dill pickles. These classic dishes, many with new twists, include:
Classic leek and potato soup
Golden puffed potato puddings
Maple pecan crumble apple pie
Classic carrot cake
Spiced pear butter
Root cellars are the best natural way to store food, and this book is the most complete and up-to-date reference available on this time-honored tradition
