Delicious Christmas Gift
I always say the best gifts are edible, so I was delighted to receive this basket from Over the Hill Orchards for Christmas. The basket includes jelly, toppings and chocolates made with Saskatchewan-grown cherries, blueberries and saskatoons. I'll write more about each item as we open and enjoy it.
Over the Hill Orchards is a venture of Dean and Sylvia Kreutzer, who live near Lumsden. Their primary fruit crop is the sour cherry developed at the University of Saskatchewan, which they sell under the trademark of Prairie Cherry. I love their packaging and think it's a great "ambassador" for the new wave of professional food processing in Saskatchewan.
Valentine's Day is fast approaching so why not give a "bottle of red" to your special someone. Check out the range of products on the orchard website.
"Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens" celebrates the colourful people and recipes that populated our province. It follows my first book "Prairie Feast: A Writer's Journey Home for Dinner." Saskatchewan tastes great -- I wrote the book on it!!
