Here is a very simple, yet delicious appetizer for your holiday meals. Start with thin, not shaved, ham. Spread a thin layer of softened cream cheese over the entire slice of ham. Then add a very thin coat of either our Raspberry Jalapeno, or Strawberry Jalapeno Jam. Roll the ham up. Chill in the refrigerator until the cheese firms back up. Slice into rounds and arrange on a plate for a yummy appetizer. They can even be cut into 1/3rds for larger sticks. Enjoy! The jam is still available at Jefferies Orchard thru the weekend. You can always call us direct at 217 827 5765.

Monte Cristo! Another great way to use our Raspberry Jalapeno Jam! My brother and sister n law gave us this great idea. They used Sourdough bread to make 3 slices of French toast, layered with fresh turkey, ham, Swiss cheese, Provolone cheese, Mayo, and our Raspberry Jalapeno Jam. It is dusted with powdered sugar. Dip it in the jam to add a little heat as you eat! Enjoy! We have lots of this jam in inventory!

Delicious appetizer using our Jalapeno Jams. Gives a nice "sweet heat".
Such an easy appetizer for your holiday get together. They can be made a few days in advance which is even better.
Our Cherry Jam is available at Jefferies Orchard!
Here is another tasty way to use our jam!
Raspberry Jalapeno is so versatile! Share some of your favorites with us as well.
Yummy!
Just in time for Independence Day, here's the recipe Molly and Liz made for Illinois Farmer Today

The Alliance Burger: Red, White and Beef
Featuring stawberry chipotle bbq sauce, white cheddar, and local beef!

All of the ingredients came from area farms and represent the policy victories and issues that the Alliance members have been organizing around!

Strawberry jam from Natural Artistry- a Springfield cottage food vendor. This year Alliance members worked to pass the Home-to-Market Act to support cottage food farmers and bakers and make their products more available to YOU. Huzzah!

Beef from Fifty Four Farms-- livestock processing bottlenecks have been a huge issue for small farms across the state. We were lucky to get our hands on local beef, but many farms are still struggling to book dates with processors. A group of Alliance farmers is exploring policy solutions that will help alleviate the bottlenecks.

Flour from Janie's Farm Organics --one of the few on-farm mills in the state. Once upon a time grain mills abounded across Illinois, but consolidation in the industry has meant the loss of local food infrastructure and the outsourcing of our food production. Farms like Janie's Mill are paving the way for the comeback.

Cheddar from Ropp Jersey Cheese-- another example of a farm leading the way on local food with their on-farm dairy processing. Wisconsin cheese curds have nothing on Ropp.

Lettuce from Mueller Family Farm- produce and flower farmers out of Illini Bluffs. Small produce farms face amazing hurdles in providing their communities with fresh food. Many state and federal programs, like crop insurance, are geared towards supporting commodity production and not set up to support small, diversified farms-- but against the odds they're making it work!

Happy 4th!

Ran into Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton shopping our Market after this week's legislative session. Her campaign highlights family farms like the ones selling today! She bought a sunflower and was talking to our Farmers Market Advisory Board member Marty Kerns of Natural Artistry when we saw her. Great to see you Lt Gov!
