Preserving Goodness from the Farm
Abundance Preserved Foods are created from the fruits, vegetables and herbs grown at the Wallace Farm using organic practices. Our chefs developed each recipe and blend, and use them often in the farm-to-table meals served at both historic sites. Try these tasty recommendations at home:
Apple Butter – Delicious on toast, makes a great spread for a ham & cheddar cheese sandwich, or serve with blue cheese & crackers
Whiskey Apple Butter – Spread on sourdough bread, accompany a cheese platter, or apply a thin layer on a pork loin halfway through cooking for the perfect amount of spice and sweetness
Apple Sage Seasoning – Sprinkle on popcorn, roasted vegetables, grilled chicken, salmon or pork chops. For Apple Pork Burgers: Mix 4 Tbsp. with one pound ground pork, portion into 4 patties, cook through. Top with a spoonful of Whiskey Apple Butter and goat or blue cheese
Garlic Smoked Salt – Tasty on eggs, add a little on top of a grilled steak or salmon, or serve with a crudité platter
Rosemary Orange Salt – Sprinkle on top of a grilled chicken breast, mix with yogurt for a dip, or sprinkle on raw radishes or kohlrabi
Basil Salt – Sprinkle on fish or the inside of a grilled cheese sandwich, rim the edge of a cocktail glass
Hot Chile Salt – Sprinkle on veggies before roasting, or rim the edge of a margarita glass
Hot Chile Sugar – Sprinkle on fresh fruit like melon and pineapple or finish candies like caramels, fudge and toffee before cooling
Lavender Sugar – Mix in lemonade, sprinkle on scones or sugar cookies before baking or after frosting
