Her secret is that by taking the time to create beautiful, super-flavorful base ingredients ahead of time--such as homemade sauces, preserves, pickles, and cured meats--you can easily create fast but luscious meals later using these components. InHome Cooked, Fernald teaches readers her methods and heritage skills to help them become more intuitive, natural home cooks who don't need to rely on recipes.
