Featured Producer: Sunchowder’s Emporia!

Sunchowder’s Emporia is based in Longwood, Florida. All of our jams and fruit butters are processed in small batches, never using corn syrup, pectin, preservatives or colors. These fruit and vegetable jams take longer to process than many store-bought jams as commercial pectin is not added to form the gel. All the fruits and vegetables are cut and processed by hand using only fresh, quality ingredients, locally sourced whenever possible. She uses French methods of jam making, such as allowing fruit to macerate overnight to coaxe out the luscious flavors of berries, stone fruits and vegetables. The preseves have a pure, smooth texture and are deliciously different from the average jam. It is the hopr that Sunchowder’s Emporia jams, spreads, chutneys and pickles will become pantry staples and wonderful time savers in your kitchen as they make fabulous glazes, dips and appetizers for mealtimes. They can be added to quick breads and cookies for unique baked goods.

Items available from Sunchoweder’s:

Budda Pickles

Cowboy Candy

Jalapeno, Apricot and Wildflower Honey Jam

Raspberry Pepper Jam

And more!

BEEF
The Sell Farm has listed only ground beef, stew beef, and cubed steak which are all in one pound packages. We will have steaks and roasts to add by Tue evening. We will pick up our new beef product on Tue, Feb. 5, late, and need time to record weights before we can calculate and post prices.
So, if you are interested in purchasing beef steaks or roasts check back on Wed. morning and we should have these items listed. I’ll tell you that our beef sales have been wonderful this year — this might be the first and last retail beef for sale for the rest of the year– now is the time to stock up – the beef lasts well over one year in a freezer. Thanks for your support!

James Family Farm’s Wally Bees’ Honey and more

In addition to their breads, cookies, preserves and relishes and vegetables in season, the James’ Farm will sell Wally Bees’ honey as they did last year. They will deliver Wally Bees’ Honey this year because Wally has hives on the James’ Farm – therefore it truly is local honey. Look up their honey and order from James.
