Out of the Orchard

BC’s Okanagan Valley boasts rich, fertile soil, endless days of summer sun, and a pristine lake fed by pure mountain streams. This magical combination makes it home to some of the most delicious fruit in the world. The BC Tree Fruits cooperative is owned by more than 500 local grower families, and their apples, peaches, pears, cherries, and other fruits are sought out by thousands every season.

This beautiful cookbook by bestselling author Julie Van Rosendaal is a collection of the absolute best, triple-tested recipes for your annual bounty of Okanagan fruit. In addition to classic recipes for pies, cobblers, cakes, and preserves, Van Rosendaal also shares less conventional recipes for fruit in salads, soups, and even main dishes. With photos throughout and primers on the best ways to use different varieties of each type of fruit, this is the Okanagan fruit cookbook for today’s locavore.
