Not Dabbling In Normal

Summer Reading
June 10, 2009 by thebackforty

It’s getting closer to the first day of summer…it’s time for weeding, chores, long days, those projects that couldn’t be done in other months…and yes, everyone’s busy!

Despite the pace, somehow our house is still draped with a rotating detritus of books some would call surface clutter, but what we find enjoyable about anytime we can catch time for a good read.  Some of them have been deliberate purchases, and many others are snagged from the library, often requested in inter-library loans after doing fun searches on different subjects.

Here are a few that are being enjoyed by us at the moment. [&hellip]

2.  Preserving Food Without Freezing or Canning:  Traditional Techniques Using Salt, Oil, Sugar, Alcohol, Venegar, Drying, Cold Storage, and Lactic Fermentation (by the Gardeners & Farmers of Terre Vivante)

I’d seen mention of this book in a lot of blogs and other sites, with many people weighing in with pros and cons of what by some is considered potentially “iffy” types of food preservation.  However, I value the collective wisdom of folks whose methods have been passed down by their past generations, or who’ve found ways to sustain themselves with foods preserved in traditional ways unfamiliar to me.  For those uncomfortable with any of the methods, it’s still an interesting read, and for others like myself who love to search out further alternatives, it’s a great book.

Some sample chapter titles:

Preservation Without Nutrient Loss

Preserving in the Ground or in a Root Cellar

Preserving by Drying

Preserving by Lactic Fermentation

Preserving With Salt

Preserving in Alcohol
