Our Kitchen Is Stocked

 We are stocking our kitchen for the season ahead...if you have never tried our jams, pancake mixes, chutney, and sauces you are missing out! They are fantastic for recipes and easy simple gifts...
 Wrapped up in one of these cute pumpkin tea towels these products make a sweet gift for a friend...we always try to tie one of the recipes in the bow. Recently arrived is the Maple Bacon Aioli and Champagne Mustard great for sandwiches, Pumpkin Butter, Black Raspberry Jam, Apple Cider Jam, Maple Bacon Onion Jam (great for Pork Chops and meat dishes), the great Farmhouse Chutney (makes the best cheese ball ever! recipe below) and the new Mexican Chocolate Sauce (ask about the recipe for Chocolate Sundae with Sopaipillas and Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate!). We also have in the large Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle mixes perfect for Saturday mornings...
