I love buying local produce on our road trips. We scored big time this past weekend. We found cherries, black raspberries and blueberries. The guy that sold them to us had purple fingers. You can't get them much fresher than that! Some goat milk fudge for my husband.
Local honey and beeswax.
And look at the way they were selling dill!
Broccoli, carrots, garlic and green onions.
Cabbage, tomatoes and zucchini. My garden is less than stellar this year so I am very happy to be able to buy all of this locally.
Corn on the cob. I am going to freeze a bunch of corn this year to use at Thanksgiving.
I get so excited to transform all of this into delicious meals.
The best thing about heading north is stopping at the wonderful smoke shops that are everywhere. I stocked up on sausages, Amish butter and smoked cheese. And I bought smoked beef sticks and jerky for my kids.
Smoked Provolone and Longhorn is so good in salads and for snacking. I'll show you what I made with all of this over the next few days.
