Prairie Fruit Cookbook: The Essential Guide for Picking, Preserving and Preparing Fruit
Make the most of prairie fruits!
Home Economist, Getty Stewart, has filled her easy-to read book with more than 130 tested recipes, basic preserving techniques, harvesting and storing information, and ideas for engaging kids in experiencing and identifying local fruit.
Getty’s love of fruit began as a small girl in Germany where her family would pick and preserve the harvest every year.
When they moved to a farm in Manitoba, they continued the tradition.
In 2010, Getty founded Fruit Share, a local organization that harvests and shares surplus fruit growing in backyards throughout the city.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Fruit Share.
