“I first learned the beauty and value of fresh vegetables from the women I loved the most. My mom and my grandmothers set a fine example of putting up by the bushel. Our screened porch was often the best place to learn what was in season.” –Author Rebecca Lang

Perhaps more than anywhere else, the South celebrates our local growers and their produce offerings. We trek to farmers’ markets for the freshest greens, turn to our gardens for year-round harvests, and even pin awards on the best-of-the-best at state fairs. It’s only fitting that vegetables are the stars of our plates.

In The Southern Vegetable Book, Rebecca Lang combines years of gardening wisdom with the innate Southern ability to create full-bodied flavor with simple, classic ingredients.  From plump, ripe tomatoes to crisp peas and even ramps (and 27 others!) – this book is chock full of recipes that pay homage to classic Southern dishes. The Southern Vegetable Book is available on April 5, 2016 from

    I would have to say collard greens. Sauteed with some bacon… that’s good eating!

    Oh my goodness…do I have to pick just one? I love them all. Guess I will say Baby Lima Beans. I like them because they are just good…especially with some pepper relish on them with creamed corn, fried okra and fresh sliced tomatoes on the plate too. Yummy!! Now I am hungry.

    Okra! The heart of summer always means Okra for me, picking in the morning with gloves daddy’s old work shirts for protection, and gobbling them by the rotated pound at dinner! Thank goodness they’re so prolific!

    Crowder peas, especially with some great chow chow. When friends from the “North” visited many years ago, their first response was, “Those are cow feed.” After tasting them, they grabbed a cereal bowl and filled it up.
