Cider Beans, Wild Greens, and Dandelion Jelly: Recipes From Southern Appalachia by Joan Aller
There are many cookbooks about Southern cooking, but precious few celebrate the southern Appalachian food that has sustained mountain folk past and present.
Featuring more than 150 recipes for down-home, soul-satisfying dishes, "Cider Beans, Wild Greens, and Dandelion Jelly" is more than just a cookbook. Complete with passages on the history, places, and people of southern Appalachia, along with lush full-color photography of the food and scenery of the southern Appalachian Mountains, "Cider Beans, Wild Greens, and Dandelion Jelly" serves as both a cookbook and a guided tour of the local lore, traditions, and culture of this uniquely American region.
