February is almost here and I’m feeling pretty optimistic about 2021. I hope you are too!
I finally got my garden cleaned up, well at least mostly cleaned up. I’m going to be changing the configuration a bit. I took out several old raised planters and will be putting in some new ones. In the meantime everything is covered up until March or April.
I’ve been experimenting with making candy and hope to have something ready for the farmers market season. I’m also trying out some new recipes for jam and a couple of marmalades – I will let you know when they are available!
Keep your spirits up! Sometimes our winters can be a bit grey, but Spring is coming!
Today I delivered jam to Oak Harbor and what a gorgeous drive!! From Anacortes the drive includes crossing Deception Pass Bridge (a marvel of engineering in itself!) which connects our Fidalgo Island to Whidbey Island. It was a reminder of how thankful I am to have landed in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!!
Our Shortbread Cookie Mix is easy to make and delicious with any of our berry jams! Pictured on the right is our Shortbread with Raspberry Jam and just for fun I added about 1/4 cup chocolate chips to the top layer!
Shortbread Cookie mix may be added to your order – just send me an email! They are $6 each. Happy Baking!!
I have a limited number of these cute 5oz jams perfect as a stocking stuffer or added to a Holiday Basket. These 3 pack minis also make a great gift for a teacher, your neighbor, co-worker or add one to a gift package you are mailing to family!
Both are at a special price: 5oz jams, regularly $6 each, are 6 for $30! The mini packs are 3 for $25 (regularly $10each).
It has been an interesting year. I hope you are doing well.
I’ve been doing the Farmers Markets and trying to put together the Nutcracker Holiday Gift Show.
This Saturday is the last Farmers Market for me at Redmond Saturday Market.
The Nutcracker Holiday Gift Show http://www.nutcrackerholidaygiftshow.com opens on November 6th. We’ve got some fantastic Crafters, Artists and Specialty Food Makers and we are following all the COVID rules, so please come on out and BUY LOCAL for your Holiday Gifts this year!
