I have just joined the Rural Women New Zealand. Rural Women New Zealand is a charitable, membership-based organisation which supports people in rural communities through opportunities, advocacy and connections. Members are diverse, but all share rural interests that connect and energise each other. It is the leading representative body promoting and advocating on rural health, education, land and social issues; and provides information, support, practical learning and leadership opportunities. Find out more on their website.
On our website we are selling a fantastic recipe book created by Rural Women NZ - A Good Harvest - Recipes From The Gardens Of Rural Women New Zealand. Kiwis love fresh fruit and vegetables, whether it’s growing a few herbs, buying produce from farmers’ markets and roadside stalls, or tending a large vege garden or orchard. But how can we make the most of this seasonal bounty?
In A Good Harvest, Rural Women New Zealand members have gathered over 300 tried-and-true recipes for seasonal produce, as well as handy tips for preserving food. These are recipes that really work, often passed down through the generations or jotted in hand-written notebooks. There are also helpful growing tips for each vegetable or fruit, to ensure a bumper crop.
From delicious jams, preserves, chutneys and pickles, to cakes, sauces and more, A Good Harvest is the perfect recipe collection for the cooks and gardeners of today - people who like to know what’s in the food they eat and where it has come from.
