QUAYSIDE PUBLISHING-Voyageur Press: The Farmer's Wife Canning & Preserving Cookbook. The Farmer's Wife was a monthly magazine published in Minnesota between the years 1893 and 1939. In an era long before the internet and high-speed travel connected us all, it aimed to offer a community among hard-working rural women. This nostalgic cookbook brings you recipes for canning and preserving fruits and vegetables from your garden or local farmers market. Each has been updated with current USDA recommendations for safe use in the modern kitchen, and recipes for how to use the tomato sauce, raspberry jam, and other fruits of the harvest that you've canned or preserved are also included. Editor: Lela Nargi. Hardcover, spiral- bound, 224 pages. Published 2009. Imported.
