Made in New York

As many of you know, Andy and I run our business mostly ourselves. We partner with OraBrite on the Waterless Hand Soap, which is where the free sample kits with the silk dental floss and bamboo toothbrushes come from. Click the link below to see some photos of The Waterless Hand Soap filling line.

For large institutional Waterless Hand Soap orders please click the OraBrite link below.

Speaking of sample kits, we have more to give away with every $20.00 or more purchase.

I have more recipes that I will be putting up on the website this week. As you may have noticed, I don't use sugar very often and love to bake pies and pastries, and make pickles.

Next up is blueberry jam and Cantaloupe Custard Pie, topped with fresh blueberries. This time the custard was made out of the actual canteloupe fruit instead of milk.

And it's pickling time. My 1st small batch are bread and butter pickles with hot peppers.

Look for it.


Peaches and plums at Ithaca Farmers Market

Peaches and plums are ripe! I'm so happy to know some talented fruit farmers. We have a couple of fruit trees in our "orchard" and it's definitely a learning curve for us!

I stocked up on apple butter and apple cider vinegar to make pickles with. Our friends at Little Tree Orchards have the best apple cider vinegar. It's almost like an apple cordial. I am growing a variety of pickling cucumbers and only use this vinegar. Since it's so sweet, you guessed it, I feel like there's no need to add sugar.

Andy will be in Booth 6. Visit him til 3 on Saturdays and Sundays.

What's your opinion

We have used 100% water processed essential oils for the life of our company. The Lemongrass essential oil we have been using for the last 17 years is what I call grassy. We are considering replacing it with a more perfume-y Lemongrass essential oil.

For all of you long time lemongrass fans, what's your opinion? It's important to us.
