PublishOhio also publishesAn Ohio AgriGuide,’ a 240-page soft-cover guide on Ohio agricultural products, including wine, with nutritional profiles and 138 nutritionally-dense recipes on everything from asparagus to honey. Though this guide is currently being updated to include information on bison and elk meats, a new selection of recipes, and the latest veggie varieties, such as the super hot Carolina Reaper hot peppers; we’re pushing to get the new edition ready for the holiday season.
