Hopefully, you are signed up for my spiffy newsletter and just received the August edition, full of news about preserving, marmalade sales, and when I'll be at the market. If not, let me give you the August dates when you can find me at the Walloomsac Market: Tuesday 8/9, Saturday 8/13, and Tuesday 8/16. Then, I won't be back until Saturday, September 3rd.
My time off is due to cruising in the Caribbean with my husband's family. I know, you're thinking that I have a tough life! But really, the time off will re-energize me and therefore benefit you in terms of inspired pastries when I return! I have lots of ideas for candy for this fall: fruit jellies, caramels, chocolates, and all sorts of things that just don't do well in the heat and humidity of July and August. I am loving summer produce right now (have you tasted the local corn?!?), but in the far, far reaches of my mind, there are visions of squash and pumpkins. Come visit in the next two weeks, or I'll see you in September!
