It’s fall, which means I have pumpkins and pickles on my mind. The pumpkins are self-explanatory, but the pickles? Most people think of summer as the prime time to preserve the season’s bounty, but I personally like my summer produce fresh and my fall produce tangy and pickled. But the truth is, you can pickle all year round! It’s an easy way to reduce food waste – in fact, you can even pickle “food waste” itself like watermelon rinds and citrus peels.
The Slow Books curators have hand-picked recommended readings to add to your summer reading list! Below you’ll find a list of books that pair well with the issues that we’re talking about and celebrating each month at Slow Food.
