Orchard: Growing and Cooking Fruit from Your Garden

Jane McMorland Hunter and Chris Kelly

Step inside to discover a revealing tale of the secrets of the fruits of the orchards, and how one may cultivate such produce in the home, whether you own a large garden or simply a balcony.  The orchard and its importance in our lives will take on new depths of meaning through this classic.

Recipes are included for all the berries discussed, with the book broken down into chapters concerning each of the orchard fruits. A peregrination is taken into history, with the fruit’s place in literature and wider culture discussed, before returning to the present to discuss the function of the fruit and how it may be used to achieve the most delicious of results.

From apples and pears to the more unfamiliar world of quinces, medlars and mulberries - fruits that have as of late become obscure to the point of almost being forgotten - any horticulturalist will value this edition on one of the most endearing and traditional of nature’s produce.

Continue on through the book to discover how you may grow your own fruit trees, with invaluable tips and insight from two authors who have given this subject the care and attention it deserves.
