I was Blessed to receive a copy of the The Old Farmer’s Almanac Garden-Fresh Cookbook for review.
Old Farmer’s Almanac
You’ll find chapter after chapter of recipes with gorgeous pictures to accompany them. With nearly 350 recipes to try, I can create a new dish daily for almost a year without repeating one! While there are a ton of vegetarian recipes, you’ll also find plenty of meat, poultry and seafood recipes. Everyone will enjoy this delightful Cookbook! There are literally hundreds of dishes that sing to my heart!
- Fancy Crepes with Berries in Grand Marnier Syrup
- Eggplant Dip
- Hearty Kale, Bean and Zucchini Soup – made with veggie stock
- Cucumbers with Feta Cheese Dressing – So easy to make!
- Marinated Vegetables
- Brussels Sprouts with Sun-Dried Tomatoes – Fabulous! One of my favorite recipes!
Serves – 10
1-½ pounds brussels sprouts
¼ cup oil-packed, sun-dried tomatoes
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tablespoon sugar
dash of hot-pepper sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
2 scallions, thinly sliced
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
Trim off the stem ends of the brussels sprouts and remove any wilted outer leaves. Cook the sprouts in 6 cups of boiling, salted water just until crisp-tender. Drain, then submerge the sprouts in ice water to cool. Drain, then transfer to a large bowl. Cut the tomatoes into thin strips and add them to the brussels sprouts. Toss and set aside. In a glass bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, garlic, sugar, hot-pepper sauce, and salt and pepper. Pour this sauce over the sprouts and tomatoes. Add the scallions and parsley. Stir, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
*Note: To boil brussels sprouts, use 1 cup of water for every cup of sprouts.
- Zucchini Casserole – Remember this when you have a ton of zucchini from the garden this summer!
- Spaghetti Salad – Yum! Perfect for summer get-togethers.
- Chive Mustard
- Pear Bread with Ginger
- Cherry Cheese Pie
- Grape Pie – Easy to make, so unique and so out of this world good!
- Pumpkin Cookies – I adore pumpkin and these are on my list to make!
- and of course no Cookbook would be complete, in my humble opinion without a deeeelicious Chocolate recipe! Chocolate Berry Torte !
If you have a garden, you are gonna love the entire chapter devoted to canning & preserving. There’s even a guide to walk you through if you’re a beginner.
If you want to start a garden, The Old Farmer’s Almanac Garden-Fresh Cookbook will be a valuable resource you’ll turn to again and again! The Beginner’s Vegetable Garden, A Berry Garden and An Edible Flower Garden are chapters jammed with information to help you become a successful gardener.
I love growing herbs, so the chapter entitled A Kitchen Herb Garden was right up my alley! An herb garden can be planted in pots you place on your deck or patio, that’s what I do. All summer long I savor my fresh basil, oregano, sage, chive and thyme. This year I might try my hand at drying my herbs!
The Old Farmer’s Almanac Garden-Fresh Cookbook contains a large reference chapter at the end of the book. There is information about when to plant, how long to keep your foods before tossing, facts about fiber, how to know when produce is ripe (this is one of my faves) and so much more!
