With over 40 entries from 8 different countries around the world, this month’s “Grow Your Own” roundup has a lot to offer! Many of the US entries are about using up foods harvested the previous Summer, but some entries celebrate foods available right now in Winter, such as carrots, kale, or even foraged truffles.
You’ll notice a lot of lemon and tomato entries – two crops people grow a lot of at home. There are also entries featuring some unusual crops, such as hops and kefir. So without further ado, here are this month’s GYO entries, listed by ingredient.

Fantastic roundup. I saw so many droolworthy dishes. How about those foraged truffles!
Thank you, Nate and Annie, for putting Recipe Round-Up together. This is a great collection for the month. I tweeted and blogged, posting your link.
Thanks so much for doing this, Nate and Annie. Some delicious looking stuff out there! I printed out a couple recipes I'm hoping to try 🙂
It's wonderful seeing all those great dishes! So many recipes; so little time! Thanks for hosting and sharing.
Heartfelt thanks Nate & Annie for putting the round-up together – we really appreciate your efforts & it's soooo good to see all the different food from around the world.
Great roundup! SO many wonderful recipes to try and super inspiration. Thanks!
Nate and Annie, you are doing a wonderful job hosting Grow Your Own! I must say I'm pretty envious of all the participants with lemon trees. I'd like to try to grow kaffir lime indoors, but not sure if it would work.
Totally awesome and in many ways mind blogging! Ha, ha. I visited many of the blogs too so I am happy about that as well. Keep it coming. I hope I can participate again in your next one!
amazing round-up! I bookmarked many recipes, thank you all!
