Jo Ann Gardner and her husband, Jigs, have been farming for nearly four decades, specializing in fruit, dairy, and herb products. Jo Ann herself makes and sells 75 cases of jams, jellies, and preserves a year. She also writes for a variety of North American gardening magazines. Jo Ann knows her subject well-and this breezy, delightful reissue of her classic text is a testament to the continued relevance of her years of gardening knowledge. In this updated and full color edition of "The Old-Fashioned Fruit Garden", Jo Ann takes you back to the basics. Hers is a clear, concise horticultural and culinary reference book that concentrates on the small fruits, with a glance at tree fruits and wild fruits, too. It offers environmentally sound directions for growing and harvesting, as well as simple guidelines for canning and preserving. Moreover it contains a treasure trove of 175 nutritious preserving, baking, and cooking recipes - unusual marmalades, for example, are coupled with English muffins. From gooseberries and elderberries to classic strawberries and rhubarb - Jo Ann has got it covered. Whether an old hand or a novice, you'll find "The Old-Fashioned Fruit Garden" enlightening and informative, not to mention enjoyable.
