Whether as a way to manage challenging economic times or retain a garden's bounty, root cellars are making a big comeback. This book takes a fresh look at the art, science and romance of building and stocking a root cellar. There are detailed illustrated construction guides for making four different kinds of root cellars that are functional and attractive. These include never-before-seen models for apartment and condo dwellers and home owners without a basement. The Root Cellar Book provides technical information on using photovoltaics (solar cells) and other energy technologies to enhance a root cellar's performance and ecological sustainability. It also includes must-know information on how to choose, store and manage a supply of fruits, vegetables, nuts and preserves. The book features 100 recipes that call for stored produce, many of which also make use of the root cellar's specific environment, such as sauerkraut and barrel-fermented dill pickles. These classic dishes, many with new twists, include: Classic leek and potato soup Golden puffed potato puddings Maple pecan crumble apple pie Classic carrot cake Spiced pear butter Three-onion relish Root cellars are the best natural way to store food, and this book is the most complete and up-to-date reference available on this time-honored tradition.

He recommended a book from Steve Maxwell (builder extraordinaire). We have a house in the West end of Toronto and have the room, so we thought, why not - though we later found out that we could build one in a condo!It was our Spring project and we were thrilled with the results! Steve's book was easy to understand, there were loads of plans, illustrations, instructions - and even recipes that we could use after storing foods in the root cellar! And, let me tell you - these recipe are divine! Our family favourites are Beet and Sweet Potato Fries with Three-Pepper Mayo, Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup with Sunflower Ravioli, and Chocolate Citrus Trifle.This is the best thing we've done for ourselves and out kids - I highly recommend this book... 13 of 13 people found the following review helpful Save money and eat healthy all year round, June 22, 2010 By Emily Canibano "skyyogastudio" (Naperville, IL) This review is from: The Complete Root Cellar Book: Building Plans, Uses and 100 Recipes (Paperback) I received a review copy of this book and loved it. Although I do not have the room or basement to construct a root cellar - there were directions for outside root cellars, townhouse and condo root cellars and even warm climate cellars.The diagrams and instructions were detailed and easy to follow.Even better were the recipes: salads, vinegarettes and even cakes. 100 recipes in total make this a wonderful book to own even if you don't want a root cellar. There were even vegan friendly recipes.I loved this book and love sharing it with others. 12 of 12 people found the following review helpful A step in the right direction, April 8, 2011 By countrygirl78 This review is from: The Complete Root Cellar Book: Building Plans, Uses and 100 Recipes (Paperback) I have been an organic gardener since I was 15. My parents never had a root cellar so I learned how to can. I have read all the Dick Raymond books I can get my hands on and he talks at length about having a well constructed root cellar. This book takes the root cellar into the 21st century and takes the reader step by step through the process of making a room under your house, into the side of a hill or inside the refrigerator section of a truck into a place to store the fruits and vegetables in. As the country gets farther from her roots into a grocery store full of irradiated, sprayed, hormone laded food, we need to get back to growing and storing our own food.
