Rock Creek Farm Market – July 16th!

Canada Day at the Farm Market!It has been a hectic month!

In June I spent 2 weeks in Fort McMurray AB with a co-worker installing ticketing software at the Oil Baron’s Arena. It was mostly work, but we did get a chance to go to the Oil Sands Discovery Centre and we drove past the Suncor plant north of Ft McMurray. I had a week between trips and we cooked like mad for a week and managed to can 86 jars. Blueberry Garlic Jelly, Pepper Jam, Baked Beans, Margarita Jelly, Pina Colada Jam, Strawberry Daquari Jam, Strawberry Balsamic and Pepper Jam, Bean Salad and a few other tasty treats, all before Friday July 1st.  We had an exceptional day. We took Saturday off to do some much needed shopping as I was heading to Vancouver for 3 upgrades July 4-8th. July 3rd was a travel day, but I went to Greenwood with Dave and helped him set up for the Sunday Market. Dave did well, we only had a few jars left.

On my way home from Vancouver, I stopped at some lower mainland markets and picked up some gooseberries and peppers. I got home after midnight on the 8th and there was not enough to go to the Market, so we took the weekend off.

This week we have been back in production.

  • Gooseberry Jam
  • Pepper Jelly (with some fresh picked red Jalapenos, red and yellow peppers, garlic and multiplier onions
  • Margarita Jelly
  • Minted Cherry Jam
  • Chili Cherry Jelly (yes! Fresh Chilis too!)

On the burners to come are:

  • Blueberry Garlic Jelly
  • Raspberry White Wine Jelly
  • 8 Bean Salad
  • Bread and Butter Jalapenos
  • Strawberry Banana Jam or Strawberry Jalapeno Barbeque Sauce

I’ll update you on Friday!



About badkowalik

Prepared by hand and cooked in small batches – our preserves are cooked slowly. There is an average of 1.5 pounds of fruit in every 8 oz jar. Not only can you taste the difference – you can see the difference. Beautiful natural color and unmatched textures – that can only be achieved by the patience and experience of the Confiseur (the maker). There is alchemy to what we do. Like fine wines, each season has it’s own specific style. We create preserves with exceptional taste. Capturing these flavors is the craft of our business. Beary Good Stuff is a collection of seasonal, sustainable, artisinally made preserves. The collection is made (in limited quantities) from local fruits using traditional cooking methods. We use the freshest ingredients we can get. The small batch production insures a taste and texture that is unmatched in the commercial market today. The collection includes preserved fruits & vegetables – marmalades, jams, fruit butters & salsas, pickles and gift collections that reflect the bounty of the season and spirit of feasting. Although not necessary yet, we have received a letter from the BC Heath Authority. We submitted a package detailing how and where we made our products, what each recipe contains and how we prepare it. This letter is displayed in our tent at the Farm Market. We have our BC MarketSafe and FoodSafe certifications.
