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 rather be in the middle of a cabin full of food because most of us are not used to dealing with food (and lots of it) in its natural state.
This book is organized by food type (grains, vegetables, fruit, meat) and written in a conversational, easy to follow format. It’s packed with almost 1000 easy, frugal, traditional recipes that will help you make the best use of what you have in the pantry already!
This is a massive, value-loaded book with over 300 pages of recipes.
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.
My book contains over 1000 of my own recipes, or ones that I have adapted and used over the years to make 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.
FOOD DOESN’T HAVE TO BE FANCY
You don’t need another book telling you how to make exotic ingredients into meals. This is real, down home cooking at its best. Save money by making your own ketchup, barbecue sauce, tomato soup and more from fresh tomatoes.
I’ll show you how to put up the garden bounty to quickly use it all winter. Learn to keep up with the egg and milk abundance when you have small livestock.
Here is what my friend Esther says about the cookbook. (Esther, an author, homesteader and vlogger, is the daughter of the late and great Carla Emery, author of The Encyclopedia of Country Living!)
Ham and Apple Dinner Pie
Scalloped Ham and Potatoes
Bacon Potato Soup
Spaghetti and Meatballs
