Blake Hill Preserves Moves Into Vegetables
That photo from Blake Hill Preserves stopped me dead in my tracks. The Windsor company is well-known for its creatively flavored fruit preserves: raspberry & hibiscus; raspberry, chipotle & cocoa; black currant & wild mint; spicy orange marmalade with chipotle and bourbon.
Now they're doing something new: partnering with local farms -- currently Edgewater Farm in Plainfield -- to pickle this summer's bounty. They're calling the line "The Pickle Pantry." It hasn't showed up yet in their online store. But you can go to their shop in Windsor's Artisan Park to check it out.
