Grain harvesting can be done in small spaces. With Homegrown Whole Grains, you'll learn how to grow, harvest and cook nine nutritious whole grains. From wheat and rice to heirloom grains, this book covers everything you need for a successful grain harvest.
All you need to start grain harvesting is to convert part of your yard into a field of grain. After the harvest you can enjoy nutritious whole grains, using them whole in delicious recipes or milling them into flour for artisan breads and other baked goods. Barley, quinoa, millet, buckwheat and oats are among the grains you’ll learn to take from yard to plate.
Author Sara Pitzer started this book 30 years ago, when she wrote Wholegrains for the original folks of the back-to-the-land movement. Today, she writes about grain harvesting with a different attitude, one that helps modern homesteaders grow their own food at a smaller, more manageable scale.
For the gardener who is eager to grow more than a variety of vegetables, this grain harvesting book will become a dear resource. Each of the nine grains featured in Homegrown Whole Grains has a different flavor and use. By harvesting them at home, you'll be able to make such varied foods as whole grain pasta, as well as add variety to homegrown food.
About the Author: Sara Pitzer has learned and written about grains in Pennsylvania's Amish country, California, the American Southeast, Thailand and Peru. She is the author of more than a dozen cookbooks and travel guides.

Biodynamic gardening is about respect for nature, sustainability and spiritual ecology-but most of all it is about flavorsome, nutritious and real food; This biodynamic cookbook by Wendy E Cook, has all the recipes to prove it.
The Biodynamic Food and Cookbook is a source rich in information, beautifully illustrated and packed with healthy yet tasty recipes.
Biodynamic gardening and cooking is a movement that is supported by top chefs, expert viniculturists and numerous celebrities. Even Prince Charles has introduced its methods at his Gloucestershire farm. Yet biodynamic agriculture had humble beginnings, and is based on the approach of caring for the environment.
In 1924, a small group gathered to hear the philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner give a series of lectures. At a time when industrial farming and mass production were on the rise, Steiner spoke of the qualitative aspects of food and outlined an agricultural method founded on a holistic perception of nature. Today, more than ever, biodynamic farming and cooking goes beyond organic labels to embrace a real connection with the land.
Illustrated with hundreds of full-color photographs, The Biodynamic Food and Cookbook explains the principles behind biodynamics and places it in the context of food and cooking throughout the ages. This cookbook has a Mediterranean base, and includes recipe sections on bread, sauces, salads, desserts and drinks.
Wendy Cook takes us on a journey through the four seasons, presenting over 150 delicious recipes based on many years of working with biodynamic nutrition. She studies the ethics of food, the foundations of a balanced diet, and conjures up the color and vibrancy of Mallorca, the Spanish island that has contributed so much to her personal approach.

Author Sharon Astyk tackles all the nuts and bolts of preserving foods, and provides tips on how to bulk buy and preserve food inexpensively. Independence Days is packed with valuable secrets to home food preservation, including canning and dehydrating techniques, root cellaring, season extension, and a host of broader issues. In addition, it focuses on how to enjoy a delicious, high-quality diet at home year-round, how to preserve food on a community scale, and how to reduce reliance on industrial agriculture by creating self-sufficient and vibrant local economies.
In just a few decades, America's approach to food has changed radically from the self-sufficiency of our grandparents to the convenience foods of mega-supermarkets. The recent economic crisis has seen millions of North Americans move from being middle class to poor, and from poor to hungry. At the same time, the trend toward self-sufficiency, whole foods health and eating locally is shifting from being a pricey fringe activity to an essential element of getting by. But how can you eat locally, not just when the farmers markets are bountiful, but all year-round? Who really knows anymore how to eat outside of the supermarket, and who really knows how to eat a balanced diet based on easily stored and home preserved foods?
