Harvest

Harvest *****
by Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolis

This is a beautiful, hard covered, full-color book. The book is divided into three sections by harvest time: early, mid, and late. Each plant has a picture and description on one page and the next page has a project or recipe. 

I never knew that lilacs were edible. There is a recipe for making lilac perfume that you can wear or cook with. And I didn't know bachelor buttons were edible. There is a recipe for making a beautiful butter with petals mixed in. I think those will be my first two recipes to try out.

The garden behind this book is in California so some of the plants won't grow well up here in Idaho. But, I'm looking forward to trying some new plants that will do well up here.

This book would also make a great gift for a gardener or cook.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
