This Week’s Bounty: Willoughby Cheese, another Bacon, Sweet Peppers, Tomatillos, Rutabaga and MacIntosh Apples

Fresh from our Farmers and Producers

We’re excited to introduce a couple of new items!

  • Willoughby Cheese from the Cellars at Jasper Hill. This is a limited edition that has been washed in the spent lees (the yeast remaining after fermentation) from Shacksbury Cider. This cheese’s thin washed rind imparts a lightly pungent and savory base to the ripe cream flavors of it’s interior. Enjoy at room temperature with Spelt Crackers, a Baguette and Apples.
  • Bacon from VT 99 Meats, as you can never have too much Bacon! The collaboration between the Cellars at Jasper Hill and Pete’s Greens is making a thickly sliced bacon. A few simple ingredients; pork belly, salt, maple syrup, and celery juice powder, are combined to create a truly delicious treat. The flavor of maple syrup shines through for a more sweet than savory bacon experience.
