What is 225 years old yet always of the moment? The Old Farmer’s Almanac! America’s oldest continuously published periodical, beloved by generations for being “useful, with a pleasant degree of humor,” celebrates its unique history with a special edition and more readers than ever before! As the nation’s iconic calendar, the 2017 edition will predict and mark notable events; glance back and look forward, with historic perspectives on food, people, and businesses; salute legendary customs and folklore; hail celestial events; explore, forage, and cultivate the natural world; forecast traditionally 80 percent–accurate weather; inspire giggles and perhaps romance; and more—too much more to mention—all in the inimitably useful and humorous way it has done since 1792.
For years, readers of The Old Farmer’s Almanac have indicated that their favorite recipes are those of family and friends. Now, in appreciation and for its 225th anniversary in 2017, the Almanac has gathered 196 recipes of its fans and friends in its newest cookbook—The Old Farmer’s Almanac Readers’ Best Recipes and the Stories Behind Them. These are home cooks’ best-loved, most-requested recipes—the dishes they serve at family gatherings and potlucks, the ones that have been passed down for generations, or the ones that must be made for special occasions—with often heartwarming, occasionally amusing, and always personal tales and anecdotes of the recipes’ origin. Classic Almanac time- and money-saving tips make this a collection that cooks and readers will treasure.
