Preserving the Harvest: Extras Order

Preserving the harvest

Rumtopf, or drunken fruit, made with local apples, pears, blueberries, strawberries, hardy kiwis + rum and sugar

Preserving produce from the harvest for winter is more than just sauce and jam.

Fresh fruit can be added to alcohol to create a delicious drunken fruit drink to serve over the holidays.  Fresh fruit or herbs can also be added to vinegar to create tasty infusions to add to vinaigrettes, sauces or even to make cocktails.

Pickled vegetables make great stores over winter. Chutneys are a great way to save fruit.

The farmers are offering cases of certain items  to help you try a new recipe!

Tomatoes, apples, stone fruit from Hepworth Farms, NY
Hardy Kiwi berries from Kiwi Berry Organics, PA
Local Honey and Maple syrup from Lancaster Farm fresh, PA
