Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Varley Valley's August 5th Market Report

Jane Varley of Varley Valley shares her August 5th market report:

Blackberry season is coming to an end. Maybe our “war wounds” will finally heal. Between the thorns, mosquitoes, and chiggers Sarah feels like she has been through a battle, if not a full blown war. Elderberry season is now underway and we have been busy picking and juicing the berries. We hope to have some elderberry jelly soon.

I have been thinking about adding some fruit syrups to our product line. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in. The pricing would be similar to our jellies. The syrup could be used to top pancakes, French toast or ice cream. It can also be used in making drinks (such as blackberry margaritas – my brother’s special creation).

This week we have added the following Jams: Low sugar sweet cherry, low sugar blueberry, grapefruit marmalade, and brandied grapefruit marmalade. I know what you are thinking; it is out of season for grapefruit. Last winter, I froze the juice and the peels and have finally gotten around to the tedious chore of slicing the peels into itty bitty strips. If you like orange marmalade, stop by and try some of my grapefruit marmalade.
