Patti Powers and Ralph Legrande have been farming organically for more than 35 years, specializing in heirloom berries, fruits and herbs. They began selling preserves at farmers' markets when they realized it was a way to turn their delicate and perishable berries into something that could be enjoyed year round! Each jar is hand crafted with love and care and is made from 2/3rds organic fruit! These are truly as good or better than it gets!

We use an organic sugar made by evaporating the juice of organically grown sugar cane into crystals. It's less refined than white table sugar and has a lovely sparkle.

Nowadays, most jams - even homemade - are made by adding pectin, a starch that gels the fruit in just a minute, but only with the addition of large amounts of sugar (or a substitute like corn syrup) usually 2/3 sugar to 1/3 fruit. (Since we don't rely on adding pectin to facilitate a quick gel, we can reverse this to 2/3 FRUIT to 1/3 SUGAR!)

Fruits that are allowed to ripen fully in the summer sun sparkle like jewels. Their aroma is intoxicating. Their flavor is more intense and more complex than that of fruits that must travel to a market. It's that perfect flavor of sun-ripened fruit that we try to capture by making our preserves with as little sugar as possible (twice as much fruit as sugar).

We make our preserves the old-fashioned way by cooking the fruit in a wide kettle with just enough sugar to ensure a soft set. Using 2/3 fruit to 1/3 sugar, I stir every kettle of boiling fruit as it cooks down, skimming off the foam created as the juice evaporates and the preserves thicken.

When I feel the resistance in the stirring spoon increase, I begin testing the fruit, coating and tilting the spoon until I know it's ready. When it is, I remove the kettle from the heat, stir a bit more, then ladle the fruit into jars. Ralph boils the lids and covers the jars and cans them in the boiling water bath canner. Each batch makes a dozen jars or less.

Our fruit vinegars - Queen of Hearts Raspberry and Teddy Berry Blackberry - sparkle with the taste of our organic berries infused with Miller's cider vinegar. The honey that helps mellow the acidity is from bees who live right here at Cheshire Garden - thanks to our friends Jodi and Dean of Imagine That Honey. The bees help pollinate all of our fruit flowers and then produce some of the best honey in New Hampshire! We're so grateful to Jodi and Dean and their lady friends and we're so glad that they are happy here as well. (We don't use a lot of honey - just enough to mellow the blend.)

We make our Kitchen Garden Brand Sriracha and Habanero Sriracha from peppers that we grow here at the farm. Our sriracha sauce is an all-natural product made with our own peppers and garlic, organic cane sugar, organic white vinegar and xanthan gum.

Sriracha is a type of hot chili sauce used in Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. It is different from American style sauces in its use of fresh, whole chilies and garlic with minimal use of vinegar. Ours has a bright sweet fruity taste with sharp chili heat and pronounced garlic flavor.

We start by selecting fully ripe peppers from our fields, which we grind with the garlic, sugar and salt and allow to ferment for 4-10 days depending on the ambient temperature. After fermentation, the pepper "mash" is passed through a food mill to remove all of the skins and seeds. Then we cook it with the vinegar and bottle it. Our sriracha sauce is sealed and shelf-stable but should be refrigerated after opening. 8oz

This is simply the most beautiful, and environmentally responsible honey we have ever seen. We have utmost respect for these bee keepers and their practices. They harvest seasonal wildflower honey in the Massachusetts Pioneer Valley and Vermont. Bees from one hundred colonies—managed without using pesticides or antibiotics—gather nectar from basswood and buttonbush, knotweed and clover, goldenrod and aster. Their honey is raw (unpasteurized) and only lightly filtered; it retains enzymes, traces of wax and pollen that figure into its flavor and healthful properties. Crystallization is normal as weather cools.

In Chinese and Tibetan cuisine the mushroom is used most often as a vegetarian replacement for pork, beef, lamb, and venison. The texture is somewhat scallop-like. Once reconstituted it usually seared or simply added to soups and stews where its meaty texture and gamey flavor can best be appreciated. They are considered a gourmet mushroom by many people. They have a seafood-like flavor,somewhat like the taste of shrimp or lobster, but it is not an overwhelming flavor.

Reishi mushrooms are some of the most widely used medicinal mushrooms in the world. Their scientific name is Ganoderma lucidum. In Chinese medicine, reishi mushrooms are known as ling zhi, which means spiritual plant as the Chinese believe the herb is healing for the spirit. The most popular method for consuming them is to drink a tea made from them. The tea can be prepared by simmering the dried mushroom in water for 3 hours. Adding reishis to soup is also a good option. As with tea preparation, it should simmer in your soup for 2-3 hours to really bring out the flavor and earthy aroma. If you decide to use them in a prepared dish, use sparingly and as an accent. It is regarded by many Japanese chefs as a good way to deepen the umami flavor in a dish. 2 oz

This plant is similar to wakame; it is the standard sea vegetable for miso soup. Unlike some wakame, it has not been blanched in boiling water, prior to drying. I harvest only the delicate annual plants, in the upper zones, during the months of May and June. I leave the deeper perennial plants to insure that the annual zone will always regenerate. Alaria is rapid-growing, tenacious, and flexible. It thrives in surf, and it has a very clean smell.
