Slow Foodie before it was hip!

Wikipedia states the definition of slow food is an alternative to fast food, it strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem while promoting local businesses...I guess I have always been a "slow food" person before the definition became hip, but honestly it is "fast food" in my world, I just spend time preparing while items are in season and stocking my shelves.  My new love that I will be stocking my shelves with is mostardos, a savory jam prepared for meats and sandwiches. Then when I want a "fast food" sandwich I just reach to the shelves for something delicious that has preserved the farm fresh seasonal flavors.  Pictured is our new cranberry orange mostardo served on flatbread with turkey, Boursin garlic and herb cheese spread and spinach from the greenhouses.  Granted the cranberries had to be bought this year (being planted this May), but the fantastic orange flavor is from our favorite citrus farm see more just like us on Facebook or to find out where to find our products, what is available from the farm or just receive seasonal recipes email and ask to be added to our digital newsletter at
