Maple Baked Pears

Drip, drip, drip….we can almost hear the maple sap collecting in pails in sugarbushes across Vermont and our Weekly Sale from March 16th – 22nd celebrates sugaring season with a handful of ingredients well suited to a hearty maple-themed breakfast! You’ll find local, organic, dark robust maple syrup quarts from Shaker Maple Farm; organic Bartlett pears; Quaker Hill Granola; local, organic Rogers Farmstead Creamery yogurt; local coffee from Bud’s Beans; and Niman Ranch ham steaks that are just begging for a maple glaze. This recipe pulls together many of those ingredients into a Vermont breakfast spread that also doubles as a decadent dessert when you swap out the yogurt with a scoop of local ice cream!

Baked Honey Pecan Pears

Looking for a simple and elegant hors d’oeuvre to serve at your New Year’s Eve celebration? We think you’ll love these Baked Honey Pecan Pears! The recipe features a handful of ingredients from our December 26th – 31st Weekly Sale, including an amazing local cheese that is the product of a collaboration between the organic dairy farmers at Scholten Family Farms in Weybridge and Jasper Hill Farm in the Northeast Kingdom. Roasting the pears for a few minutes helps to soften them and bring out their natural sweetness and the entire recipe takes around 10 minutes from start to finish!
