The answer to the perennial problem of an overabundance of wonderful fruit and vegetables, this book helps make the most of any garden glut. Whether it's courgettes, beans, apples, or blackcurrants, most gardeners will recognize the sinking feeling when you have had such a good harvest that you can't face picking, cooking, or eating any more. Even if you haven't grown them yourself it is easy to end up with too many fruits or vegetables after a visit to the local pick-your-own farm or a country hedgerow. The book includes more than 250 recipes for using fresh produce in new and exciting ways and explains how to pickle, preserve, dry, bottle, or juice your surplus fruits and vegetables so they can be enjoyed throughout the year. Recipes for every occasion and every type of meal are featured, from pizza to pates, casseroles to cakes.""
