Johnny Appleseed would love our new relishes!

Our American line keeps growing – we’ve just released two Heirloom Relishes showcasing heirloom tomatoes, an heirloom beet and an heirloom apple! We’re super excited about these, especially the Heirloom Relish Burpee Golden Beet & Wealthy Apple. Not only does it taste absolutely awesome (our favorite is to serve it on Smoking Goose Smoked Elk Terrine), but we are so happy to be able to finally showcase an heirloom apple. 200 years ago, there were 7,000 apple varieties grown in the US, and today we are down to less than a hundred – most of which are barely surviving in some specialty orchard, but are not commercialized on a significant scale.

BLOG – We love the Slow Food Ark of Taste!

Slow Food has always been very important to us here at Scrumptious Pantry. I have been a Slow Food member for over 15 years, and the education I received from Slow Food about clean, good & fair food was one of the things that inspired me to start Scrumptious Pantry.

When we embarked on our mission to showcase more American heirloom products, the Slow Food Ark of Taste was our favorite read, and it still is. On it, Slow Food has compiled a list of varieties and food products that have cultural value and are at the brink of extinction. With listings from all of the Slow Food member states internationally, it is a fascinating read.

We showcase this amazing flavor in our curds and you can, too. In an elegant holiday dessert that is not only delicious, but easy to prepare: a trifle.
