Liberry Literature

June 23rd, 2008

Some of my fondest summer memories are wrapped in the berry harvest—strawberries and raspberries—direct from the garden.

While easily consumed with a sprinkle of sugar (and we gorged on them!), there are endless other berry applications suitably-detailed in texts from the cookbook collection. Check out a few today—fresh-prep or preserved!
