Vermont Fresh: A Fruit and Vegetable Handbook- Produced by Salvation Farms, Sterling College and the Vermont Foodbank. The goal of this handbook is to give you more information on the produce grown in our state. There is information on the nutritional value, storage, preparing produce for cooking and even some simple recipes. It is a large document and takes a little while to download but is well worth the wait!



From Asparagus to Zucchini: A Guide to Cooking Farm-Fresh Seasonal Produce

3rd edition now available! – From Asparagus to Zucchini is an indispensable, nationally renowned resource for people who want to make the most of local and seasonal produce. From Asparagus to Zucchini was originally created in 1996 by the Madison Area CSA Coalition to help our CSA members make the most of the wide variety of produce they received from their farms each week. 17,000 copies later this book has become an indispensable tool for CSA members, farmers, market enthusiasts, and gardeners across the U.S. and beyond.

The main section of the updated third edition of the book features 53 different vegetable and herb sections. Each section includes nutritional, historical, and storage information as well as cooking tips and specific recipes – over 420 original recipes in all. The best part is that lesser known vegetables have more recipes, not less! The A-Z Food Book is much more than a conventional cookbook. It includes essays that adress the “larger picture” of sustainable agriculture by describing how food choices fit into our economy, environment, and communities as well as information about home food preservation and helping kids appreciate (and even eat!) vegetables. An extensive resource section and recipe index round out this unique resource!
