About Marian K. Towne

MARIAN K. TOWNE was born in South Dakota during the Great Depression. In her Mennonite farm family, wasting food was anathema. Wherever she has lived in the Midwest, she and her family have purchased locally grown fresh produce, gardened, and cooked. She is also the author of Bread of Life, Diaries and Memories of a Dakota Family, 1936-1945 and The Onliest One Alive: Surviving Jonestown, Guyana.show more

Back cover copy

A Midwest Gardener's Cookbook, the product of 50 years of cookery according to seasonal principles, offers recipes using 94 locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs (including wild crops such as mulberries, pawpaws, and violets) at the peak of their flavor and freshness. Take this book with you as you stroll through the local farmer's market, or consult it after bringing in the harvest from your own garden. If it's spring and the mint is up, what could be more delicious than a Yogurt-Mint Marinade for shish kebab, or a dish of Minted Citrus Carrots? For the summer, you'll find unusual and tasty recipes for everything from blueberries to zucchini. In autumn, make Towne's easy and inexpensive Apple Coffee Cake, or stir up a batch of her Mennonite-style Apple Butter. In the section for winter, you'll find ideas for kale, leeks, and other winter vegetables, hints for growing herbs indoors, and much more.show more
