  • 15 Herbs for Tea Booklet

    "Growing your own herbal teas can be just as therapeutic as drinking them. The tea garden is a sensory delight, producing colors, aromas, and flavors to enjoy throughout the seasons. The plants are easy to grow and you don't need a large area -- even a few small containers will do. By drying the tea herbs and then blending and packaging them in your own unique way, you can share the bounty of your garden with appreciative friends and family. 

    In this booklet, you'll find everything you need to know about growing and using tea herbs, from information on planting and maintaining your herb bed to how to harvest, dry, and blend the herbs. In case you don't have the time and energy to grow your own tea herbs, you'll find a list of sources for buying them in bulk. Best of all, you'll learn how to brew a delicious cup of tea!"

    "There's something so elemental about a good bread. And if it's a bread you've made yourself, you also feel a lovely sense of gratification. Here you'll find basic breads -- white, whole wheat, and so on -- and also some variations and specialty breads. But first, you'll find a description of the key ingredients used in breadmaking and a section on bread-making techniques. At the very end, you'll find a few sources for grains, flours, mills, and all sorts of other things that'll come in handy for the breadmaking cook."

  • Caring for Woodenware

    So many of the good things in life take some extra care. A garden, a special meal, tea time...they all take a bit of extra time and attention out of your day. But if you do them, and do them with a bit of extra love as well, you will be greatly rewarded. The same goes for woodenware--it is a workhorse in the kitchen, constantly at the ready to do battle with thick stews, or to carefully coax beaten egg whites into a batter. But if we take a bit of extra time to take extra care with the woodenware, it shines so beautifully! A well-oiled, well-seasoned wooden spoon feels so nice in the hand, and keeping your woodenware in prime condition will help it last for decades.

  • Eggs and Chickens Booklet

    "When was the last time you tasted a really fresh egg? One with a high yolk that was a deep, dark yellow, bordering on pink, and a white that stayed together in a plump circle instead of running all over the frying pan? If your answer is, 'I guess I never have,' you aren't alone. When author John Vivian and his wife first made their move from city to country, he says 'I really believed that the lighter colored the yolk, the fresher the egg. It wasn't until our pullets began laying that I learned the facts and that the yolk color is dependent on the pigments in the feed.' "

  • Making Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Booklet

    From the introduction: "Ice cream and its various relatives, including ice milk, sherbet, sorbet, ice, and frozen yogurt, are America's favorite dessert -- likewise, more of these threats are consumed in this country than anywhere else in the world. Today, ice cream knows no social boundaries, but early in its recorded history, it was a food of royalty. 

    What made ice cream readily accessible, however, was the invention of the ice cream churn, complete with dasher, hand crank, two tubs, ice, and salt, by a woman named Nancy Johnson in 1846. By 1851 ice cream was produced commercially. Ice cream sodas became an American mainstay after the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1879. That ubiquitous treat, the ice cream cone, came on the scene in 1904 at the St. Louis Exposition."

  • Making Maple Syrup Booklet

    "This bulletin will tell you how to make syrup on the three simplest levels. The first level is for people who intend to tap only a couple of trees, to make only a couple quarts of syrup, and to spend no more than $20 on equipment. The second level is for people who may have a dozen trees to tap, who may make five or even ten gallons of syrup, and who will put $300-$450 into equipment. The third level is for people who want to be small commercial producers. If you're one of these, you will get the smallest size of a true evaporator, make anywhere from 60 to 200 taps, and produce from fifteen to fifty gallons of syrup each spring. And you will make an initial investment of at least $1750, unless you can buy used equipment from another small producer who is quitting." Note: These dollar figures, and all others in the book, apply to 1988-89.

  • Tasha Tudor's Welsh Breakfast Tea

    Tasha Tudor's favorite blend of Welsh Breakfast tea makes the perfect gift for yourself or any tea drinker. This tea made an appearance every day at Tasha's tea table, and is beloved not only by the Tudor family, but generations of fans.

    In the 1990's, the venerable tea company, Mark T Wendell, presented Tasha with several blends to choose from in selecting one to be her signature tea. Once selected, she drank no other kind of tea.

    Mark T Wendell Co., tells us that "The family run tea estates in China and India that grow the tea adhere to the strictest of practices and guidelines and do not use any type of pesticides when growing and cultivating their teas. The teas then undergo thorough testing before export and again upon entry to the US before it is delivered to Mark T Wendell."

    (Storage Note: We suggest keeping your tea in a well-sealed or airtight container when you receive it. The tin should do just fine. For longer storage, seal it airtight and keep in a dry, dark place)
