A Gift of Local Goodies

One of my favorite holiday gifts that we received was this gift basket from the hub's brother and his girlfriend. The basket contained some delicious goodies made locally in the Upstate New York.  How wonderful that they support local food businesses! In the basket was artisanal goat cheese from Coach Farm of Hudson Valley, Orange Blossom Honey from Raindrop Farms in Cazenovia, NY, Hot Wasabi Cheese from Yancey Fancy of Corfu, NY, Coffee from JB Peel in Red Hook, NY, Tea from Harney & Sons in Millerton, NY, and Three Philosphers Beer crafted by Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown, NY.  Everything was just delicious.  I especially loved the Hot Wasabi cheese, because I love spicy horseradish.  It is amazingly good stuff. 


  1. That hot wasabi cheese sounds delicious! What a great gift!

  2. What a great assortment for a wonderful gift!

  3. I think they picked an excellent gift for ya'll.

  4. It's so cool how new learning is built on older learning, and how once you learn something, it can come up again other times. I have been using some recipes from my cookbook collection, and a few weeks ago, made wasabi salmon patties. I don't know if I'd heard of wasabi before that. In fact, I asked a co-worker, who is a vegetarian, if he knew what is was, and what aisle to get some at the store. Since then, I've heard about wasabi a few other places, including a blog post showing photos of it growing. I think that was fer, whose blog is My Little Garden, or something like that.

    Anyway, that cheese does sound good, as does the other stuff in your basket. I like those snuggies, too. I have to wear sweatshirts in our house, and still use blankets a lot. I don't wear what I have that may be a snuggie because I'm afraid of tripping in it.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
