A good resource for anyone planning to store part of their harvest in a cellar or building a new cellar.more
This is a truly comprehensive reference on root cellaring: selection of storage vegetables, planting strategies, storage techniques, construction information on various styles of root cellars, descriptions of actual root cellars, and recipes to use with storage vegetables. The book is well-organized and thorough, with good illustrations and photos, as well as nice reference tables. I felt the descriptions of actual root cellars dragged and wasn't excited by many of the recipes they suggested (in particular use of nonseasonable ingredients that can't be stored in a root cellar) but I think this is probably the best root cellar bible out there. I plan to buy this one for myself.more
An immensely useful book for anyone intending to build and stock a root cellar. Age-old technology like root cellaring does not lose efficacy with time, so don't let the age of this book fool you.more
