     Enjoy the pumpkin since this is the fall season.  Then when you are finished looking at it, you can use it for soup or a pie.  I always think that the round pumpkins tend to be more watery then the long neck ones.  So I use them in soups.

  Our cider is unpasteurized and natural.  it is very flavorful, but it will turn!  So keep it in the refrigerator.  It should be good for a week at least.  Here is my annual lesson on turned cider.  If the cider does turn and you do not like it with a little zip to it.  Just boil it on the stove. Let it boil for a few minutes, then either drink it warm or put it in the refrigerator until use.  Turned cider is good (if it is not too snappy).  I do know one man up here that waits until the jugs are so rounded that they will not sit up anymore  (meaning - they are so fermented)  before he will drink the cider and he claims that it is good for you!  If you are afraid to drink unpasteurized cider - you can just use my boiling technique as soon as you get the jug - then you would be pasteurizing it yourself!



Enjoy the fresh fruit, especially apples and pears during this season.  We have a lot of apples on the online store.  If you were planning to buy them are the store anyway, check out the items on our store.  You can order anytime throughout the week and we will deliver your items with your share.  We will keep a running total of the amount due and send you an email at the end of the seven weeks.  if you pick up at a stand, you can pay when you pick up.  www.orchardcountryproduce.com


Have a great week!
