Everywhere I travel there are "roadside stands" selling fruits and vegetables - I LOVE this time of year (mostly because we no longer take the time to plant a garden)...Instead we relish in the fact that we can go on most any "country road" and find someone who - for a small fee- wants to share their bounty!
Some of the roadside vendors travel to Lancaster County and purchase delightful goodies at the auctions where the Amish, Mennonites and good farmers take their "extras" to be purchased by outsiders! You will see many license plates from New York and other states (I agree Jersey girls...your TOMATOES are the BEST!!)
We have this wonderful booklet written by Jim Long of Long Creek Herb Farm that will help you make the best "Salsa's" and use all the extras your garden is gifting you right now. There are so many delicious recipes to try. The booklet costs $5.95 and will give you ideas for using fruits and veggies galore. What cool gifts a jar of "unique homemade salsa" will be!!
I am off to the Philadelphia Gift Show in a few minutes....hoping to find lots of new treasures for the store...we like to think we are "unique" too!!
