SALAD DRESSINGS & MARINADES
Cherry "B" Gypsy
The “B” is for balsamic vinegar which we say makes a delicious zesty companion to the juice of cherries. Our second fine vinaigrette is a not-too-sweet combination of flavors perfect for a festive spinach salad, fresh fruit, or a drizzle over a favorite aged cheese. It is THE best for deglazing, sauce reductions, as a marinade. We're very proud!
Our unique mustard is spicy-sweet. We combine hot dry mustard powder with apricots and brown sugar for a result that is excellent on roasted pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, roast beef, baked ham, etc. We make Apricot Mustard the base for a great mustard sauce for pork chops. For anyone who enjoys a good Dijon or spicy mustard, this will become a favorite!
Chipotle Lime Mustard
There comes a time when you just have to have mustard that’s “mean”. This combination of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, hot mustard, lime juice and brown sugar gives us sweet and earthy but is definitely down to business. A little goes a long way on a roast beef sandwich or your favorite grilled hamburger. Mixed with sour cream, onion and chicken stock, Chipotle Lime gives you a magnificently tasty velvet sauce for roasted chicken or vegetables. It is an excellent gift for a cook or any sandwich aficionado.
This is a pretty spread of whole mustard seed, tarragon and a Dijon-like attitude. It is rough in texture but smooth in taste. This mustard is a key ingredient to a wonderful sauce for salmon, lovely homemade vinaigrettes, even a dip for fresh veggies. It’s also great on a ham sandwich. Our Tarragon Mustard is a good cook’s must-have in the pantry.
Our Apple Basil Jelly has the familiarity of a sweet apple jelly but with a crisp aftertaste of fresh garden-grown basil. These two flavors create wonderful possibilities for not only favorite breakfast breads but it is a must-have ingredient for glazes and marinades for chicken and pork. Some folks prefer it with lamb. It is a lovely clear golden jelly we stock ourselves for some of our most often-requested recipes.
They say rosemary is the memory herb, so start remembering old phone numbers with this delicious deep red jelly. The rosemary is the first taste and is smoothly matched and leveled by the tart red cherry. We pour the hot cherry juice over fresh rosemary and let the two flavors fuse. You can’t pile enough of this on a hot, toasted English muffin!
“Ya’ll got this ’bout right,” says one of our friends from Georgia, meaning we nailed this old-fashioned Southern recipe. This is a slow-baked (takes all day!), deeply flavored and thick apple butter that spreads like a dream and takes us back to happy days with Grandma. Stock up on this one as folks tend to eat it out of jar by heaping spoonfulls!
This is something we think is quite delightful. Like our Apple Butter, this is a slow-baked mixture, but with fresh cherries, cinnamon, cloves and the sweet aftertaste of almond. You can make a mean and much-talked-about turnover with this or just put it on the breakfast table and let everyone fend for themselves with toast and biscuits.
