Sure, if you like delicious food, want to save money, and believe that a stove should do more than cook food.
But isn't it difficult to use?
There are some techniques to learn, and they're described in this book. Take Jane Cooper's warm hand and be guided into the world of woodstove cookery. You'll learn how to buy a stove, new or used, how to set it up, how to fuel it for various uses, how to keep it clean and in peak operating condition.
And how to cook on it?
Yes, a lot about that. And dozens of recipes, with emphasis on cooking best adapted to the kitchen range -- baking bread that tastes as good as it smells, cooking stews that gain goodness in hours on the back of the stove, roasting meats. Mouthwatering dishes that would make even Grandma envious. And you know how Grandma used to cook.
Who is the author, Jane Cooper?
She 's a professional writer with a lot of experience using a wood range. Before writing this she called on wood cookstove cooks across the nation, and they responded with recipes, ideas, warnings, hints. Only then did she sit down -- at the kitchen table, of course -- and write this book that is a source of both knowledge and enjoyment.
