Hot Afternoon in the Kitchen!
Farm Market season will be upon us soon!
To start the season, we will be participating at the Slow Food Canada National Conference, at their Salone Del Gusto, or a farmers market.
Slow Food has been active in different regions in Canada for more than 10 years, with a particularly strong presence in Montreal, Ontario and British Columbia. During this time, Slow Food has become one of the most important bi-lingual food organizations in Canada. We were very honoured to be contacted to participate.
We have been working on our Business plan, our HACCP Plan (food production safety plan), looking for a local commercial kitchen, analyzing our recipes (for nutritional labeling) amongst other things. And today we canned!
Blueberry Garlic Jelly, Blueberry Lime Jam and Ba-Da-Bing Cherry Marmalade. I forgot to take pictures. The blueberries were frozen the same say we got them last summer, as were the bing cherries. Last summer the cherries were incredible. Sun and rain at exactly the right time, they were larger than any I’ve ever seen. We pitted them before we roze them and their size made pitting them difficult. I have a feeling there may be some cherry stones left…
I think I will put that on the label. Click here for the Ba-Da-Bing Cherry Marmalade recipe.
You gotta LOVE the smell of Cherries and oranges cooking!
