That's over 400 pages of a wide range of recipes, enough to delight the heart of any recipe collector, especially recipes like buttermilk syrup, Instant Oatmeal Packets, homemade pop tarts, chokecherry syrup, Ezekiel 4:9 (sprouted grain) bread, crock pot baked custard, cream cheese chicken with broccoli, beef bologna, citrus vinegar cleaner, and borax-free dishwasher detergent.

What I really appreciate about this cookbook, is that it includes the kind of information that homesteaders and do-it-yourselfers are looking for: how to make nut butters (with tips for specific kinds of nuts), cheese making, candle making, a soaking and sprouting chart, slow cooker basics, soaking and cooking dried beans, gluten-free eating, a thorough list of gluten-free flours, grains, and meals plus their best uses, and more. It also includes wonderfully unusual recipes such as canned sausage, canned milk, wheat-free chickpea pasta, ghee (clarified butter), deodorant, toothpaste, chocolate body scrub, and homemade sunscreen.
