The Irish have a saying: Better a cabin full of food than a hungry castle
I couldn’t agree more!
Unfortunately, too many people would be rather lost in the middle of a cabin full of food because most of us are simply not used to dealing with food (and lots of it) in its natural state.
Whether you’re on the farm or in town, you’ll find great classic recipes that you can use today in this cookbook. If you have a fully stocked pantry, you should not need to make a shopping trip just to feed your family!
Organized by food type (grains, vegetables, fruit, meat) and written in a conversational, easy to follow format, this book is packed with almost a thousand easy, frugal, traditional recipes that either help you fill your food storage or help you use what you have stored.
This is a massive, value-loaded book. 318 pages, 8.5×11″ and a whopping two pounds.
This isn’t a cookbook so much as an encyclopedia on homestead cooking written by someone who knows what she’s doing – the author lives deep in the woods, raising four children in an off-grid cabin with solar power, wood heat and no fridge.
My grandfather always said to eat food that remembers where it came from.
But in this era of cans, boxes and bags, it is sometimes hard to know what to do with simple, from-the-farm food.
This book is big.
Over 300 pages, 8.5×11″ pages, and it is packed with almost a thousand recipes.
Many are mine, or ones that I have made my own.
There are lot of plain old classics that have almost been forgotten.
And quite a few come from the hand-written tried-and-true recipe books of my Old Order Mennonite friends.
These are recipes that have stood the test of time.
