Cider Beans, Wild Greens, and Dandelion Jelly:
Recipes from Southern Appalachia

by Joan E. Aller

Everyone knows the South is famous for its culinary traditions, but even with as many Southern cookbooks as there are today, there's still uncharted territory left to explore. Fortunately, for all foodies and lovers of hearty food that feeds both body and soul, Joan Aller unearths a mother lode of southern Appalachian sustenance for Cider Beans, Wild Greens, and Dandelion Jelly: Recipes from Southern Appalachia.

Filled with more than 100 recipes guaranteed to please everyone from the urban gourmet to the most rugged of mountain men, Aller's cookbook offers a wide range of distinct dishes from this quintessentially American region. Whether you're looking for more familiar fare such as Southern Butter-Crusted Chicken or Old-Fashioned Southern Tea Cakes, or want something more off the beaten path such as Butternut Squash Soup with Sweet Tea and Ginger, German Bierocks, or Burgoo, this cookbook has what you're looking for.

More than just a cookbook, Cider Beans, Wild Greens, and Dandelion Jelly takes you into the heart of southern Appalachia with passages about the history, people, and places of the area. Complete with stunning full-color photography of the unique, beautiful scenery and food the mountains have to offer, this cookbook is ideal for anyone interested in the culture and cooking of one of America's most enchanting locales.
