Produce Companion - from Balconies to Backyards

Author(s): Meredith Kirton; Mandy Sinclair


Great produce need never go to waste in this gardening and cookbook that looks back to the classic skills of pickling and preserving. The Produce Companion is a beautifully crafted food and gardening title in two parts - section one concerns producing, growing and storing fruit, vegetables and herbs; while section two covers what to do with the produce in the kitchen.  
The gardening component of the book, written by influential and well-respected horticulturist Meredith Kirton, includes comprehensive notes on cultivation, choice of varieties to extend seasons, methods of harvesting, how to best keep produce and when to pick it. The cooking section, by food writer Mandy Sinclair, contains more than 100 recipes, covering drinks and syrups, sauces and salsas, pickles and chutneys, pastes and pestos, vinegars and salt, jams and jellies, and confit and preserves. 

It's the perfect guide to making the most of your garden bounty!
