Introducing our next big idea... Submit your favorite recipe here
The Maurer Meals Fruit Cookbook is coming together nicely, with an anticipated Fall 2013 sale date. With the help of many friends and good cooks over the past nine months, we’ve accumulated lots of great recipes and ideas for the book, but we’re asking for your help one more time as we try to balance out our offerings. We received many great apple and berry recipes, but some fruits are under-represented--pears, peaches, grapes, cherries, plums, and some lesser used varieties, like elderberries, chokecherries and kiwis. If you have a recipe using one of these fruits, please submit above. If you know of other great cooks who might like to contribute, please pass this appeal along to them.
Thanks for your continued help—and look for the Maurer fruit cookbook in the fall!
Maurer Meals Cookbook Series - Celebrating Maine Fare, but we need your help.This cookbook is intended to showcase locally grown foods and expand the fundraising base of Maurer Meals by sharing recipes from good cooks who use locally grown foods. Many people may not be aware that Maine has peaches, kiwis, and sweet potatoes, in addition to maple syrup, lobster and blueberries, so we’ll include some information about the history, cultivation and availability of these foods in our region.
We also want to celebrate the connections that good food can help create—the spirit of community at pot lucks, the strength of family and friends gathering around a table to share a meal, the gift of food as the “fruits” of our labors. So, we’ll include stories about the foods from our contributors.
We invite you to participate in this first phase of the project—dedicated to Maine fruits-- by submitting a recipe or two that are favorites in your family. Please submit your recipe(s) here. THANK YOU!
