Let’s face the fact we live in New England and it’s cold more than it’s warm. We discovered the joy of canning and jarring a few years ago when we committed to making absolutely sure we’d have heirloom tomatoes throughout the winter. Sealed inside those containers is a little bit of the elusive summer in every jar. We’ve worked with some farmers and jarred up some delicious goodies such as golden beets + fennel, pumkin + fig chutney, plum jam + fruit mostardas.

Keith and Monika Mann’s cranberry bogs in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts have been certified organic since 2000. They grow their cranberries with natural fish fertilizer, without the use of pesticides and herbicides with NOFA-MASS standards. Currently, the Manns have 27 acres in organic production, growing varieties native to Massachusetts. The Manns use antique wooden equipment that they reconditioned and use for sorting their cranberries by hand. www.orcranics.com
