FEATURED PRODUCTS

White Asparagus

White asparagus is actually the same plant as green asparagus.  A special growing technique that prevents exposure to sunlight causes their white color.  The result is a sweeter and tenderer asparagus.  Peel all types of asparagus before cooking for optimum texture.  White asparagus can be steamed, sautéed, grilled, pickled, or blanched and chilled for salads.  Serve with shaved hard cheeses, hollandaise sauce, and cured meats.

Mama Lil’s Pickled Peppers

Mama Lil’s peppers are marinated, pickled Hungarian goathorn peppers that are hand harvested and hand made from a family recipe.  Traditionally these peppers in oil are served with bread or cheese, but they are a fantastic addition to sandwiches, pizza, pasta, eggs, salads, and roasted vegetables or potatoes.  You can also use Mama Lil’s to sauté or marinate chicken, fish, or steak.
