Elements of the Table: Scrumptious Wooodsgift Farms Memory Foods

I may be jumping ahead of myself here, the table isn't yet set but I am already bringing up the food! But I am just so excited about this that I can't wait to post about it later. For years our family has been going to a local festival and every year our main mission has been to obtain curds and jellies from one vendor, Woodsgift Farms, which we would then stockpile for the rest of the year.

Not only do they taste AMAZING but the couple from Tennessee who make them are just the sweetest, nicest, godly folk you could imagine. Just as good-old fashioned "good people" as the product they sale. When my little brother Josh had torn his ACL (I can't remember if this was his first or second one) and was consequently suitably less than his usual happy self, these lovely people prayed for his quick recovery.

This year, we were thrilled to find out that we would be able to carry it in our shop! Let me tell you as I picked out our first order I was smiling like a little kid at Christmas! We are now pleased to be able to offer this product to our customers. While they make some traditional jams and jellies like strawberry, raspberry and blackberry, they also make what they refer to as "Memory Foods" that your great-grandmother might have made like Honeysuckle, Rose Hip, and my personal favorite of the Dandelion jelly which we currently carry. These are just a few of the delicately delicious floral jellies which they offer and we hope to carry. They also make simply divine Lemon and Lime curds (the lemon slightly edges out the lime as the family favorite and we could all sit down and eat it with a spoon...a healthy treat which I love is take the lemon and mix it with some plain yogurt, DELICIOUS!) and fruit butters. For breakfast, snack or tea, no table is complete without these delicacies. Take a look for yourself. We can always ship!
