Root Cellaring: Natural Cold Storage of Fruits & Vegetables
by Mike Bubel. Root cellaring uses the earth's naturally cool, stable temperature to store perishable fruits and vegetables. Before the modern conveniences of refrigeration, this is how perishable produce was stored when it was no longer in season. This book has 4.8 out of 5 stars by 77 customer reviewers, and isn’t just for those with built-in root cellars in their old farmhouses. The book has information on how even apartment dwellers can makeshift some sort of cold storage. ($2.51 through the end of the month)
