It may be raining and cold out, but we’re thinking about summer and stone fruit. The crews have been out in the orchards pruning the nectarine and peach trees, and we’re making great progress. It does my heart good to see it. Speaking of hearts, Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away! If you’re looking for something sweet to give your loved ones, look no further. Here are my top 5 picks for Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate never goes out of style. Chef Becky’s Classic, Chili and Orange dark chocolate truffles, made with olive oil to draw out the rich flavors, are in a class by themselves.
This rich dark chocolate cake with a layer of handmade marmalade is a great way to say Happy Valentine’s Day to a group – it serves 6-10 people.
Sweet and juicy, they’re perfect for eating out of hand and make a nutritious gift.
#4. Cherry Galette
Served warm with ice cream, this light and flaky pastry made with Frog Hollow Farm-grown cherries is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!
Blood Orange & Strawberry marmalade, Nectarine-Plum conserve and Plum-Strawberry conserve. These three preserves are the color of love… with bold flavors to match.
