Out of the Orchard: Recipes for Fresh Fruit from the Sunny Okanagan | Julie Van Rosendaal
2 posts | 1 read
British Columbia's famed Okanagan Valley boasts rich, fertile soil, endless days of summer sun, and a pristine lake fed by pure mountain streams. This magical combination makes it home to some of the most delicious fruit in the world. The BC Tree Fruits cooperative is owned by more than 500 local grower families, and their apples, peaches, pears, cherries, and other fruits are sought out by thousands every season. This beautiful cookbook by Canadian bestselling author Julie Van Rosendaal is a collection of the absolute best, triple-tested recipes for the annual bounty of Okanagan fruit. In addition to classic recipes for pies, cobblers, cakes, and preserves, Van Rosendaal also shares less conventional recipes for fruit in salads, soups, and even main dishes. With photos throughout and primers on the best ways to use different varieties of each type of fruit, this is the Okanagan fruit cookbook for today's locavore.

Apples are the main stars in these recipes from the Okanagan in British Columbia, alongside other orchard fruit (pears, plums, peaches, apricots & cherries). Lovely photos & tempting recipes like Apple Pie Steel-Cut Oats done overnight in a slow cooker. Names for desserts always intrigue me: buckle (a dense coffee cake with crumb topping); pandowdy (like a crisp, only with pastry on top); slump or grunt (cobbler with a more buttery cake topping).

saresmoore I love me some overnight oats! 1mo
Lindy @saresmoore Wholesome comfort food on cold mornings. Is it cold in the Carolinas yet? 1mo
saresmoore @Lindy I‘m sure not, by your standards, but even us folks on the coast have been enjoying some crisp fall breezes and chilly mornings. 1mo
Lindy @saresmoore The weather sounds nice there. We‘ve got snow and -3 C this morning, going down to -14 tonight. Definitely hot porridge weather here. 1mo

Spiced Pear Lassy Mogs from the tagged #cookbook. Soft molasses cookies to use up an overripe pear as I empty fresh food from my house before travelling to Ontario tomorrow.

readordierachel Yum! I will have to track down this recipe. Sounds delicious. 2mo
Lindy @readordierachel It‘s a recipe from Atlantic Canada, I think, even though the cookbook is from the Okanagan area of British Columbia. 2mo
