Ken & I will be at the Farmers Branch Farmers Market every Saturday this month except the 15th. Come out and visit us. The first buyer will receive a FREE sample size jar of Strawberry Jam. Anyone who buys 3 or more pints or half pints will get one FREE 4oz. jar of preserves. This holds true for the month of September. We are looking forward to seeing our returning customers and meeting new ones at the Grove, 5-8pm. Come out and hear some great music, eat some delicious food & meet some amazing artisans.
Remember earlier this month I blogged about entering my Chow-Chow in the Texas State Fair Creative Arts Contest?
Well it won First Place!!! Just got the confirmation letter today.
I am too excited! No money comes with this recognition but, my name & recipe will be included in next year's cookbook.
Once again Cousin Z from Camden NC was right!
We will not be vendors at any local farmers markets the month of August. Hope to return first Sat in Sept. However if you are in need of some product, please contact us via this website or on our facebook.page.
sThis weekend, we will enter our Chow-Chow recipe for the Texas State Fair. Last year the Watermelon Rind Pickles won 2nd Place. Personally, I think the Chow-Chow is amazing but; will the judges think that? The recipe has been taste-tested at various farmers market. We are submitting the recipe that got the most votes. We will see how this goes this time.
The first person to acknowledge this post via online or by phone will receive a free half-pint jar of either Hot or Mild Chow-Chow. Complimentary shipping & handling (if needed).

We will be taking lots of jars to Farmers Branch tomorrow. Including Plum Jam & Tomato Pear Chutney. My goal is to sale half of the jars we take. We will be taking 52 jars. I promise to be honest & tell you how many we actually sell. Knowing the accountability involved here will make us work twice as hard. Daughter may join us for a little while to help with sales. Until tomorrow...
Its tomorrow, Sunday, 8/5/18. We sold 20 jars.
