Oh yes, turtle loves, it's here.
Caramel apple season is upon us, and BOY does it look tasty!
We are heading into our sister shop's truly crazy season, and we couldn't be happier about it. To get ourselves warmed up, Amy and I did a pop up shop at Far From the Tree Cider. If you've not been, go. These folks make a seriously gorgeous product, and the place has a very cool vibe.
I made a truffle out of one of their September tipples, "Jam Session" -- milk chocolate ganache enrobed in dark. The cider has a hard time competing with the chocolate, so while it doesn't exactly taste like cider, it's super tasty. There's a little smoky note in the cider, and that seems to come through in the truffle, but that's about it. Totally fun and tasty experiment. I've been having one for dessert after lunch all week, and I am not mad about it.
October in the Salem shop means all sorts of extended hours starting Thursdays through the weekend. Check our Facebook page for updates throughout the month. Also, this October, we are participating in the Haunted Bizarre Bazaar, so folks can visit us in the great outdoors as well as in our little jewel box of a shop on 318 Derby St.
