Date with a Pig

Date with a Pig
No photo yet, I apologize. They’re eaten that fast—

Apple-smoked Bacon– 1 package
Medjool dates– about 30
Savory Sauce

What to do
Cut dates in 1/2, discard seeds.
Cut bacon in thirds, so you have about 3″ strips to work with.
Wrap bacon around date halves.
Secure with metal or bamboo pick.

In a convection oven;
Bake at 340* for about 10 minutes a side.
Regular oven; bake at 350* for about 12 minutes a side.
Drain off bacon grease & save 1 T. for “Savory Sauce”.

Habanero Balsamic Sauce-
In a saucepan;
4 parts Ojai Habanero Jelly
1 part Balsamic Vinegar
Reduce for about 45 minutes over low heat.

Easily alter Habanero Balsamic Sauce to this
Savory Sauce

In a saucepan over low heat;
Warm 1 1/2 cups Habanero Balsamic Sauce
with 5-ounces Chévre
Add 1 T. bacon grease + any date bits left over.
Heat through. Stir & serve.
bet you can’t eat just one

Taste of Ojai

[frame]Taste of Ojai 2014[/frame] This event just keeps getting better!
A big shout-out to Charee Edwards for coordinating the event, & to the Ojai Rotary Club!
As always the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa Resort hosted Taste of Ojai -2014.
The Indian-Summer conditions were spectacular, as October often presents in our little Nest-
The music was great & the ever-smooth Alquimia Organic Tequila divine!
People danced, laughed, & enjoyed tasty items from; Surf Brewery, Bliss Frozen Yogurt, Suzanne’s Cuisine, Feast Bistro,
& of course the Jelly Gals were serving up Ojai Habanero Apricot Jam over Cheese Cake!
Mark your calendars for Taste of Ojai 2015- it’s well worth attending!

Herbs de Humboldt











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!
