Regrown: How to Grow Fruit, Herbs and Vegetables from Kitchen Scraps
by Paul Anderton and Robin Daly of Two Dirty Boys
Hardie Grant BOOKS
It's a little-known fact that the roots, stems and skins of plants destined for food waste can actually be used to create a brand new version of the original. The technique is called regrowing, and it's fascinating.
Ranging from fruits and herbs that will sprout in a matter of days, to vegetables that will delight in later seasons, Regrown is an easy-to-follow guide to growing new plants from your kitchen scraps, including everything from carrot tops and mushroom stalks to ginger, avocado and even pineapple. Let Paul and Robin, aka Two Dirty Boys, take you through the process of reusing items to grow plants that are every bit as delicious as their first incarnations, with tips on how to use them in the kitchen, too.
With 20 herb, fruit and vegetable projects and step-by-step illustrations throughout, all you need is a jar and a tapful of water to let nature do its thing.
