HOLIDAY GUIDE: FIT FOR FOODIES
It’s that time of year, the mad dash to the holidays. But don’t fret, Front Porch Pickings has just what your foodie friends will love! Here are a few gift ideas to choose from:
Camp Craft Cocktail Kits Get fancy and give the gift of great cocktails. I’ve been to enough White Elephant gift exchanges to know that the alcohol-themed gifts are the ones people truly want. Don’t be that person who tries to re-gift a 2018 desk calendar. Be the hero!
Topsy Toffee A perfect holiday twist on the classic southern tradition. Topsy Toffee is a local, fun, fresh product made here in Jacksonville right from Tucker's mom's recipe book.
Townsend's Specialties Apple or Pumpkin Butters: A sweet gift anyone would love. Choose from one of their amazing butters or jams. Not only can you spread the butters over toast, but its a great option for bakers.
Byrds Nest Soap: A truly small scale, locally made, natural soap to our FPP customers. Byrds Nest Soap, owned by Jacksonville resident Jordan Byrd-Ayers, makes a small variety of all-natural soaps – never using synthetic colors, fragrances, or additives.
Congaree & Penn Rice, Grits, and Shrubs: A gourmet foodie’s dream! With Jupiter Rice, Purple Rice Grits, and Shrubs to choose from, your foodie friend will be delighted to be the recipient of this culinary love.
FRONT PORCH PICKINGS Gift Certificate: The fall season is in full bloom and it’s a perfect time to introduce your friends and family to all we have to offer with a gift certificate. In addition to your gift certificate, FPP will send your recipient a coupon to waive their new member fee. That’s an additional $25 value!
Your Holiday Bake-A-Thon Starts with FPP
The inner baker in me always comes out during the holidays. There's nothing better than warm homemade breads, cookies or muffins. And now, you can make it even better by milling your own wheat at home! When you mill your own wheatberries into fresh flour, what you'll get is nutritious whole wheat flour where nothing has been added or removed --- and a taste that doesn't compare!
If you've not milled your own flour before and want to try, the WhisperMill by GrainMaster has been highly recommended by several local folks who've been milling at home for over 10 years. You can also check our AskWardee's video to get your started.
Not to worry if milling your own flour sounds a bit over the top, we have restocked on Daysprings' all-purpose and wheat flours just in time for your holiday cookie bake-a-thon. Family owned and operated by the Bretts, DaySpring Farms is an 87-acre farm, located just outside of Danielsville, GA and is USDA Certified Organic.
Thanks for supporting local,
Amie & the FPP Team
