The Market in Osoyoos – July 27

To morrow at the Osoyoos Market on Main, we will have:

  • Peach Salsa
  • Tequila Jalapeno Jelly
  • Blueberry Garlic Jelly
  • Beer Jelly (Shocktop Apple Crisp)
  • Root Beer Jelly
  • Cherry & Red Wine Jelly
  • Merlot Jelly
  • Peach & Strawberry Jam
  • Nectarine Jam
  • Dilled Cucumber Spears
  • Bread & Butter Pickles
  • Icicle Pickles
  • Sweet Jardiniere

It has been a busy week! What can I say, it’s picking season in the Great White North!

We turned 30 pounds of peaches into Peach Salsa, Peach and Strawberry Jam, Peach and Strawberry Hot Pepper Jelly, a Peach Pie (for our anniversary) and Nectarine Jam.  We took Wednesday off (actually we went shopping for the business) and picked up 27 pounds of cucumbers! We made Dilled Spears – 250 and 500 ml batches (using an old family recipe-cutting the cucumbers into quarters pickles them faster), Bread and Butter Pickles -250 and 500ml batches and Icicle pickles – only 500 mls.


Oh Yes, we also made – 2 Batches of Rootbeer Jelly (Yes, it tastes exactly like root beer), and 3 batches of Blueberry Garlic Jelly.

If we can get another 25 pounds cucumbers and or peaches before the season is over, we will can more. We also want to do more peaches and get some late cherries, and there are Plums and the tomatoes are coming…I wonder what we will bring home tomorrow….?

So much to can and so little time!


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.
