Green Giving: Give Food! Part 3

The Green Giving series continues today with more ideas on how to give food instead of “stuff” this holiday season.

I give same things to folks every year for holidays. This year is no different. My holiday gifts consist of:

  • Homemade strawberry jam made with Arkansas strawberries
  • Homemade blackberry jam made with Arkansas blackberries
  • Homemade peach butter made with Arkansas peaches
  • Homemade apple butter made with Arkansas Black apples
  • Local honey or sorghum
  • War Eagle Mill cornmeal (upon request from family members)
  • Homemade candied pecans made with Arkansas pecans

Nothing says “I love you” like homemade goodies. In return, Eddy’s family always gives us fresh shrimp from South Carolina where they live. We enjoy the shrimp throughout the year, throwing them into gumbo, pasta, omlets, and on top of pizzas.

Not much of a cook? Don’t worry. Several Arkansas farmers offer jams, jellies, honey, and sorghum for sale, including:

War Eagle Mill and the House of Webster also offer jams, jellies, and preserves, so check them out!

This concludes the Green Giving series. The world is full of “stuff.” We can all do our part to keep “stuff” out of landfill, support local economy, and see our loved ones happy. Let’s give green this holiday season!

Look What Came in the Mail….

Arkansas mustard from House of Webster! Located in Rogers, Arkansas, House of Webster has been making jams, jellies, and salsas since 1934. The company makes mustard as well, and when I discovered that, I jumped the ship from Annie’s Naturals (from California) to mustard closer to home. House of Webster sells six 4.75-oz. jars for $21.95, and the six jars must be of the same kind. The company sells several different kinds of mustard including Honey Mustard, Champagne, Bavarian, and Stone Ground. I bought Stone Ground, and since I won’t be able to use up 6 jars of mustard anytime soon, I’m giving one away to the first person who gives me a shoutout. Wanna a jar of Arkansas mustard? Leave a comment!

AR Mustard at Pickles Gap

After the foray, we stopped by Pickles Gap Village in Conway to buy some homemade fudge. Guess what else we found…Arkansas mustard. The House of Webster in Rogers makes several different kinds of mustard, including Honey, Champagne, Stone Ground, and Bavarian. We plan to use it next time we get hold of salami and baguette. Yum!
