Christmas Offerings 2014

As the days become shorter and the temperatures drop, the time has come to look forward to the comforts of Christmas and all the wonderful food that time of year brings. My offerings for this year include both sweet and savoury condiments and shortbreads. 

The shortbreads are made from the finest ingredients; Balderson 12 year cheddar, 70% dark chocolate, organic flour and sweet butter. Each package is a minimum of 100gm, ten to twelve cookies. 

As always most of the fruit and vegetables come from my organic garden.
This year’s offerings include Wild Grape and Crabapple jellies. These contain nothing but fruit juice and sugar (no commercial pectin). The marmalades highlight citrus fruits available for only a few weeks each year. The savoury condiments include a spicy ketchup made from my heirloom tomatoes, cayenne and jalapeno peppers. The Bread and Butter Pickles are made with my cucumbers and onions. The Sweet Zucchini Relish is a favourite of Cote du Bouef, the artisanal butcher  and provisions shop on Ossington Avenue, which I supply with vegetables and condiments through Cooper Road CSA. The Smokey Peach Barbecue sauce contains organically grown peaches from a farm in Uxbridge and has hints of smoked paprika. The pickles and relish come in 250 ml jars and everything else is in 125 ml jars.

You can order by email whenever and as often as you like. Let me know when you prefer me to deliver it and how many gift bags you would like. 

Each item is $5. 

I will also be at the CSI (Centre for Social Innovation) Holiday Pop-Up Market at 720 Bathurst on Thursday Dec. 11
