Whether you grow your own vegetables, buy shares in a local CSA or have a neighbour with an emerald green thumb, preserving the harvest over the winter can be a challenge. If you don't own so much as a single Mason jar, cold storage can be the answer, and The Complete Root Cellar Book: Building Plans, Uses and 100 Recipes by Steve Maxwell and Jennifer MacKenzie provides everything you need but the lumber. Homeowners, townhouse renters and even apartment dwellers can find a plan to suit their living space. And it doesn't end with the final nail. By the time you put down the hammer, you'll know everything you need about root storage, pest control and even have the essentials on keeping your wine collection happy. To ensure you enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of your labour, MacKenzie, a veteran recipe developer, provides 100 tempting soup, main, dessert and condiment recipes. What makes this book unique: The sheer range of designs and storage ingenuity is impressive. Detailed plans range from a complete do-it-yourself, walk-in root cellar to a less ambitious tune-up of an existing cold room. Got a yard but no basement? Try an old-fashioned root clamp or outdoor cellar pit. For apartment and condo dwellers plans include ways to convert a second refrigerator.-- (10/01/2010)
