Now you can add Roslyn's Locs & More in Dville to your list of places to find our small 4oz jars of jams, chow-chow and pickles. Perfect size to select, sample & serve!
After 2 straight HOT weekends & 3 days of market selling, we're slowing it down and will resume outdoor markets in Sept. Online ordering and local purchases are still available. We had a great time, saw lots of returning customers and met new ones. These next 2 mos. will give us lots of time to make more product for the scheduled fall & winter markets and shows. Shout outs to the 2 day West Wall Street Outdoor Vendor Event at Friendship West and Duncan Switch Street Mkt. sponsored by the Duncanville Chamber of Commerce.
We'll be at Duncan Switch this Sat. June 19th from 9 until 3 on Main St. in Duncanville, TX. We'll have many of your favorites. We will not be at the market in July and August. However, you can continue to order online OR purchase items at The Market Gourmet Food Store on Houston St in downtown Cedar Hill.
We finally got some peaches and more are coming. First batch came from the Peach Truck. Hopefully the next batch will be from a local peach orchard out of Waxahachie. The orchard lost 16 of its 24 trees during the snowy weather in Feb. This season, there will probably be fewer peaches for everyone. So order some Providence Preserves Peach Jam, Peach Habanero Jam and/or some Berry Peachy Jam while we still have some. You can also find these jams at the Market Gourmet Store in quaint downtown Cedar Hill Texas.
Who said you couldn't eat fruits and vegetables at the same time? You can now! Try out Tomato Pear Chutney on goat cheese & a bagette OR on baked or grilled meats OR on white fish OR mix some with rice for added flavor. You won't be disappointed.
INGREDIENTS: tomatoes, pears (of course), onion, raisins, bell pepper and lots of spices! Forgot to mention, it does have a kick!
So you say you're a true Southerner but you've never heard of Watermelon Rind Pickles or Squash Pickles or Bread & Butter Pickles or Cinnamon Cucumber Rings??? Mom, grandma, auntie or some of the sweet little old ladies at the church would make them every summer. Your job as a kid would have been to help gather the fruits or veggies and wash them. Then, the (sweet little old) ladies did the rest of the work.
Well, I am now that sweet little "old" lady.
Get to know me!
After several visits to the commercial kitchen, we're back at making preserves. So far, we've made Strawberry Jam, Berry-Peachy Jam, Mild & Hot Chow-Chow, Dilly Beans, Tomato Pear Chutney, Squash Pickles and Watermelon Rind Pickles. You can find many of these products at The Market store on Houston Street in Cedar Hill. You can also find our jams with the From the Dirt Farm at Dallas Farmers Market. We will still be selling directly to you at various events and markets throughout the season.
The preserve-making season is upon us (me). We will be in the commercial kitchen this coming Monday. (But first, let us fill the orders already placed). We're ready to start making our first batches of Jams, Chow-Chow and Pickles As the season progresses, more preserves will be made. We hope to share some pics & a video or two with you real soon.
We'll keep preserving those memories
Berry-picking and berry-breaking days are here.
I believe there is something very special about making
