Irish Shortbread Cookies
Menu Group: Food
Section: Baked Goods
Category: Cookies

Vendor: Beehive Bakery

Traditional shortbread cookies of Ireland which my Irish granny made slightly more coarse and chewy than the shortbread from across the Irish Sea in Scotland. Lots of butter and a tad less sugar than the Scots use. I bake with King Arthur flours and put honey in recipes as much as possible instead of lots of sugar.
often it's our own honey until we run out and take more off the hives mid summer.

White Beauty Slicer
Menu Group: Plants and Seeds
Section: Vegetable Starts
Category: Tomatoes - Slicing

Vendor: Whitehill Farm

(74-I) In 1927, according to Isbell's Seed Company, this was the best white tomato variety they had ever grown. The variety apparently goes back to 1850. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces heavy yields of 6-8 oz., slightly-flattened, round, oblate tomatoes with creamy white on inside and outside. Fruit has a luscious sweetness with enough acid balance to keep taste from being wimpy like many others of this color.
