NNGA Centennial Cookbook: Our Nut Recipes

NNGA Centennial Cookbook

This cookbook represents the collective knowledge of NNGA's CAP (Complimentary Alternative Program) group and of long time nut growers. Each, no doubt, has had many years of experience preparing meals, desserts, salads, snacks and soups which incorporate nuts. 229 recipes, which list nuts as an ingredient, are in this cookbook. These recipes are divided into the following groups: appetizers and soups, breads, main dishes, vegetables, salads, cakes and frostings, candies and snacks, cookies and squares, pies, and desserts. As a bonus the CAP group has included a squirrel section consisting of 26 recipes ranging from Cajun Squirrel to Squirrel Stew.

The reader will also find a list of nutritional values for chestnuts, macadamia nuts, walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts and peanuts. The cook will find a useful tables of ingredient substitutes, a table of weights and measures, and a table of equivalents which, for example, will tell the cook that 15 graham crackers are equal to 1 cup of fine crumbs.

Those who grow nuts or purchase nuts because they love them will find some very creative recipes in this book.

Nut Tree Culture Book

There are over 400 pages divided into 16 chapters. Each chapter was written by an expert in nut growing.

In the words of Dennis Fulbright, editor of this, NNGA's third handbook, "Volume 1 covers the history as well as the "how to's" of nut tree culture, that is, how to plant, graft, fertilize, process, and cultivate nut trees. It also covers the granddaddy of the commercial nut industry, America's nut: the pecan. The well-loved hazelnut and the species that make up the widespread hickory forests of North America are well covered with photos and descriptions. Learn about the chestnut, the newest nut to attempt to go commercial. An excellent chapter covers ginkgos, pine nuts, beeches, and acorns, including their history, biogeography, ecology, and commercial applications. Volume 1 is all this and more plus references".

"In addition to covering nut trees used to promote wildlife diversity there is also a comprehensive chapter devoted to growth and flowering including issues of alternate bearing and fruit drop."
