Ever spend time browsing at your local farmer's market? There are all kinds of garden-fresh fruits and vegetables. Sometimes it can be overwhelming and you might wonder what you can make with such a variety of produce.
Fresh from the Farmstand will give you plenty of ideas for using those fresh garden items! Inside you'll find 6 sections of recipes. Here is a small sampling:
- Freshly Gathered Breakfasts
Peach Oatmeal Pancakes, and Whole-Grain Berry Coffee Cake look delightful!
- Market - Basket Soups and Breads
Country Chicken and Corn Soup, and Garden Minestrone are hearty comfort foods.
- Garden - Fresh Sides and Salads
Dilled New Potato Salad, and Sweet Dill Refrigerator Pickles look fun to try.
- Farmstand Feasts
Hearty Vegetable Pot Pie, and Pasta Primavera Even Kids Like - are a great way to include fresh produce in the family's diet.
- Summer's Best Appetizers
Lemon Iced Tea, and Island Chiller are cool and sweet drink ideas.
- Berry Best Desserts
Royal Strawberry Shortcake, and Refreshing Raspberry Cake sound like wonderful afternoon treats.
Each recipe in this collection is sent in by a Gooseberry Patch reader. This creates a fun variety of great cooking ideas. The book is packed with little quotes, ideas and pretty drawings to encourage the home cook.
One of my favorite recipes in this book is on page 204. It is for "Never-Fail Pie Crust" and makes 12 single crusts! It looks easy to follow and is carefully explained. I can just imagine making homemade chicken pot pies, apple pies and lemon meringue pies with this recipe.
