About the Book

Specialties from the Southern Garden by Patricia B. Mitchell contains both old-timey and up-to-date recipes for bounty from the garden. “Cabbage Boiled with Bacon” is one of the “historical” recipes in Specialties from the Southern Garden. The endnote for this recipe attributes it to Housekeeping in Old Virginia, written in 1879. Instructions in the recipe remind the cook to “examine [the cabbage] for insects.” More modern recipes in Specialties from the Southern Garden skip such advice.

You'll enjoy “Mama's Reassuring Rice and Asparagus Casserole,” “Miss Congeniality Cauliflower Salad,” “Tennessee Beauty Broccoli Bake,” “Taste of Texas Coleslaw,” and “Southern Lady's Creamed Spinach.” A whole passel of other delicious recipes complete Specialties from the Southern Garden.
