Book Nook: The Pocket Pawpaw Cookbook by Sara Bir


This is pawpaw season. Right now. Here in southern Ohio these delicious native fruits are ready to eat. The season doesn't last long and the fruit does not travel well. If you find a ripe wild pawpaw as you are walking along in the woods you'll probably want to eat it right there at the spot where you found it. Or, you can take some pawpaws home and try out some of Sara Bir's pawpaw recipes.

Sara Bir returned to the program to talk about her Pocket Pawpaw Cookbook. I always love talking to Sara. She has such a zest and her enthusiasm for her subjects is downright contagious.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
