  • what you need to do to grow your own for the family table, whether you have a garden or a window box
  • how to keep seasonal produce all year round
  • options for keeping bees and hens and the joys and responsibilities that entails
  • marking the highlights of the year with delicious recipes for family and friends
Throughout Sara includes her tried and tested recipes for specialty breads, marmalade and preserves, cordials, sausages, cheese, fermenting foods, cider, wine and liqueurs, beeswax products, soaps and balms.
