Root to Bloom: A Modern Guide to Whole Plant Use
by Mat Pember & Jocelyn Cross

 

Root to Bloom equips readers with the knowledge and tools to grow, eat, and celebrate every edible part of the plant. The book explores the lesser-used parts of a plant that are often snubbed in favor of the produce we've come to expect. It includes a comprehensive rundown of 35 edible plants (from cilantro to onion to yams), covering extra components of edibility, including flowers, roots, and weeds. It educates people about ideal growing conditions, the nutrition level of the parts, as well as how to prepare/preserve them for eating, complete with recipes (such as Japanese pickled sweet ginger, Pickled nasturtium pods, and Broccoli leaf coleslaw). It includes six breakout chapters on key related topics: Medicinal; Herbicides; Skin care; Weeds/foraging; The orchard; and Preserving flowers.
