About this title:


In STOCKING UP you will find the traditional methods of home preservation that were used before insecticides and food additives were household words combined with the safety and efficiency of modern developments in home food storage. In this book you will find complete, step-by-step instructions for preserving everything--from fruits and vegetables, to dairy products, to nuts and grains, to meats--naturally, without chemicals (like sulfur) and without overrefined ingredients (like sugar). STOCKING UP takes you right from the beginning. It helps you choose the fruits and vegetables best suited for the method of storage you have in mind and tells you how to harvest and prepare your plant foods and how to dress your animals for maximum taste, food value, and keeping qualities. It teaches you how to build your own smokehouse and food dryer, how to convert your basement into a root cellar, and how to turn your garage into a temporary butchering room. All in all, STOCKING UP will help you find the satisfaction, and security, that comes from knowing that you have control over the food that you eat ever step of the way, from garden to pantry. Features of the book include: 1) separate sections on each food category; 2) pages of charts and timetables; 3) many helpful photos and how-to-drawings; 4) dozens of recipes; 5) architectural plans for storage areas; and 6) simple storage ideas for organic gardeners and farmers across the country.
