The beautiful orchard bloom in the spring has translated to a bounteous crop of fruit this summer and we are happy to say that the plums are ready! These are the small, almost cherry size variety that are just full of sweet, juicy, deliciousness. We are also happy to say that we now have pork chops, spare ribs and country style ribs back in stock. Pork pairs wonderfully with fruit of any kind and is particularly good with plums. Check out the recipe for Plum Maple Sauce at the end of this post. This year we also have our own raspberries available in the store.
If you are having trouble deciding what meat to buy try our Sampler of the Month. This July it consists of:
2lbs Ground Beef
3lb Sausage of your choice (breakfast, sweet Italian, hot or ground pork)
1lb Beef Kabobs
1lb Sirloin Steak
1/2 Chicken (min 2.25lbs)
This is all packaged in a reusable High Meadow Farm shopping bag for a cost of $75.00. If you would like a sampler please email Jassy at email@example.com.
Maple Plum Sauce makes a good side dish for chicken, ground pork or breakfast sausage patties too.
1lb High Meadow Farm Plums, pitted and quartered
1 cup High Meadow Farm Maple Syrup
1 cup red wine
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
Bring the plums, syrup, wine and mustard to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until reduced by one-third, about 1 hour 15 minutes.
