HOME-BASED FRUIT AND VEGETABLE PROCESSING:
A Manual for Field Workers and Trainers
The Manual on Home-based Fruit and Vegetable Processing is composed of
two books. This book is designed to complement Book One, "Principles of
post-harvest handling, storage and processing of fruits and vegetables", by
providing recipes and guidance that will enable you to put into practice the
principles described in Book One. It is advised that you start by reading Book
One before applying the recipes provided here. You can also regularly refer
back to Book One to better understand the purpose of each processing step
described in Book Two.
Each chapter begins by describing the processing outline for a given technique,
and then providing detailed guidance on each step of the process. A colour
code and icons will enable you to follow clearly how the process unfolds.
Detailed recipes for specific fruits or vegetables are then given, enabling you
to put in practice the processing outline.
