We still have some great gift ideas: small items for stocking stuffers, gift baskets (choose ours or make your own), gift certificates, jars of beets, peaches or smoked eggs (see sale below). We’re a great spot for the ‘hard-to-buy-for-person’.
Merry Christmas to All!
We hope you are touched this Christmas by the miraculous birth of Christ.
Due to the holiday rush and energy required, my brain has shut down when it comes to funny sayings. Sorry! However, I’m sure you can think of one that ties beets, eggs and peaches together. Our final sale of the year includes those three things. Save $1 off a quart of peaches, pickled beets, and any of the following eggs: smoked, jalapeno, smoked pickled, pickled beet. Save 50¢ on a pint of pickled baby beets.

Every year for Christmas we have soup, homemade croissants sandwiches and ice cream balls for dinner. It’s been a traditional for as long as I can remember and I always look forward to it. Grandma always made the croissants and the clam chowder. Here is her recipe.
2 cans (6 oz. each) minced clams
1 c. finely diced celery
1 c. chopped onions
2 c. shredded potatoes, raw
1 c. bacon, cut & fried
1/2 to 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. flour
4 c. half and half or milk
1-1 1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. sugar
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. celery salt
Drain juice from clams and pour over vegetables in medium saucepan. Add enough water to barely cover. Simmer over medium heat until potatoes are tender. In meantime, melt butter. Add flour and cook a few minutes. Add half and half/milk and stir constantly while cooking until smooth and thick, using a wire whip to blend. Add undrained vegetables and calms and heat through. Add seasonings. Just before serving, add cheese and bacon. You may place in a crockpot to keep at serving temperature. Serves 6 to 8.
