A Review of the Homesteader's Kitchen: Recipes from Farm to Table by Robin Burnside

Cooking with locally grown food is becoming more popular and more important as people realize the need to support the local economy and environment by making good choices that are both economically sound and wholesomely healthy.

For quite awhile me, the older woman across the street, and the old guy at the end of the road who used to have a huge farm were the only ones who had a garden on my street. This year almost every house on my road has a small garden, a few have really good sized gardens.

More and more people are returning to the old ways and growing their own food and going DIY when it comes to making and fixing things.

It makes eco-sense to grow your own food. For the price of a couple packs of seeds and some physical labor you can end up with a harvest worth hundreds of dollars.

But what do you do with all that farm fresh goodness?

Cook it.

And The Homesteader's Kitchen: Recipes from Farm to Table has a wonderfully tasty assortment of recipes to help you do just that.

There's a little bit of everything in this deliciously delightful recipe book- from breakfast to dinner then on to dessert- even beverages.

With food you've grown on your own plot or in a pot the taste is so much better. Not to mention the minerals, enzymes, etc. that have been destroyed before the consumer gets them.
