Author, Getty Stewart, has filled this easy-to-read book with more than 150 tested recipes, preserving techniques, harvesting and storing information. Getty loves fruit - growing it, picking it, preserving it and, of course, eating it!  In 2010, she founded Fruit Share - a local organization that harvests and shares surplus fruit. The movement demonstrated that there is a renewed interest in local, home grown fruit, but that few people know what to do with it. Pairing her skills as a Professional Home Economist with her long time passion for fruit, she wrote Prairie Fruit Cookbook to serve as an easy to understand guide for anyone interested in making use of and enjoying local fruit.
