Recently the 60th annual Specialty Foods “Summer Fancy Food Show” took place in
New York City.
The Cypress Grove Chevre Group selected Ojai Jalapeño Jelly to pair with their classic
“Herbs de Humboldt“!
“The fresh taste of a hand-mixed blend of Herbs de Provence balance simply, yet perfectly.
All the herbal flavors you love dried at the peak of the season. Clever in name, classic in taste”
Thank you Cypress Grovers!

The American Heart Association presents “Heart Beach Ball,” an event to raise funds for research and initiatives preventing heart disease. The American Heart Association is committed to helping our children live stronger, healthier lives with education, research and public policies that effect where they live, learn and play.
New information in the areas of congenital heart defects, heart transplants in children, cholesterol levels in teens and diabetes rates in children as well as adolescents
are just a few areas we are currently investigating.
For the second year we are continuing our fight against youth obesity, a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke, in Santa Barbara County.
The Healthy Futures Program seeks to empower students and their families to make healthier lifestyle choices by providing them with an understanding
of heart disease, nutrition education and encouraging them to be more physically active.

Meat ♥’r I AM NOT, but my girlfriend Virginia keeps saying “move over mint jelly”
when she thinks of serving her favorite Jelly with Lamb-
Ojai Jalapeño Jelly that is!
Make lamb the way you ♥ it. Then try my new concoction for an eyebrow-raising sauce for your Easter meal-
It’s sure to stir conversation-
Move Over Mint Jelly Sauce
One 11-ounce jar of Ojai Jalapeño Jelly
about 20 fresh mint leaves
1 t. lemon zest
1/2 fresh lemon juice
Whisk all ingredients in Cuisinart or blender. Scrape down sides, then pulse a few times.
Pour mixture into individual ramekins. Warm @ lowest oven setting, atop your
Sunday “BEST” China.
Garnish each dinner plate with a sprig of rosemary & mint leaf.
If you have any left over, refrigerate. It will last about 3 days.
This sauce is quite tasty on Indian food too- Fresh & delicious!
