What's in the Fruitstand

In the fruit stand we now have:

  • Persimmons--Hachiya, Maru, Hyakume (vodka-treated), and small quantities of Hoshigaki (dried)
  • Asian Pear--Okusankichi
  • European Pear--Comice
  • Apples--Fuji, Mutsu, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith
  • Pomegranates--white and red varieties
  • Plums--Casselman
  • Quince
  • Jujube
  • Vegetables--winter squash, zucchini, tomatoes, tomatillos, chiles (both sweet and hot), garlic, onions, potatoes, Swiss chard and basil
  • Pumpkins--in the fruit stand and in our pumpkin patch
Chris found a really easy and delicious recipe for quince candy on a blog in which she was also surprised to find Otow Orchard mentioned. She made some and has samples in the fruitstand. Here's the link:
