Trust me on this one.
On a recent trip, my oldest daughter (Emily) and youngest daughter (Stephany) —– the daughter in the middle (Brittany) had to work, poor baby —– did, indeed, hit the homemade candy hard. We also had a cup of their great coffee and grabbed a few fresh food items. A few of these foods were canned tomatoes and fresh butter. As I used (and enjoyed immensely) the butter and tomatoes, I made a mental note to be CERTAIN to stock up on these items before Thanksgiving and then again at Christmas.
I served the tomatoes with breakfast (eggs, bacon, and biscuits) and a couple of times at supper. I can’t tell you how amazing they are with cornbread.
There are also tons of jams, jellies, preserves, pickles, and so much more I want to have on hand for the holidays as well.
If you live even remotely near Trunnell’s, I’d strongly suggest giving your holiday cooking and dining this delicious edge. You’ll also find tons of great Christmas gift ideas in addition to Kentucky food – which we all know can’t be beat. Their pies, loaves of bread, and other baked goods will make you swoon.
If you don’t live near Owensboro, find a similar local farmer’s market in your area. It’s a wonderful thing to support farmers and local businesses – so you actually get fresh, wonderful, wholesome food while you’re doing a super cool thing.
That’s what we call a winner winner.
