Product Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

What a beautiful day it is today in New England. The birds are chirping loudly, everything is green and full, and as I sit here on the deck overlooking Narragansett Bay, I can smell the thyme in my herb box with each gust of wind. It's definitely starting to look like summer...

We've been working hard and we're excited to offer you a number of new products and deals. Don't forget the free recipe at the bottom of this newsletter!

New Products & Great Deals
  • New! Organic Wild Blueberry Jam - Nothing but pure blueberries, some sugar, and a little bit of elbow grease (in the form of stirring) went into this batch of scrumptious blueberry jam. The jam still contains small whole berries but is spreadable enough to slather onto your morning toast or a PB&J sandwich on whole wheat bread for a light lunch. Yes, it's a bit expensive, but it's worth the price! It's also cheaper, by ounce, than one of the leading gourmet jam companies in the New England area (you know...the one in Maine).
  • New! Toffee Ice Cream Topping - We've taken our classic Old-Fashioned English Toffee and chopped it down into a course, crunchy treat that will go great on a big scoop of ice cream or just about any decadent dessert. Sold in 4oz bags, it's a bargain at $2.99! Add a bag onto your next order. You won't regret it!
  • New! 100% Cotton Eco-Friendly Wash Cloths - Our new cotton hand-crocheted face cloths are made of 100% USA-grown cotton, from well-managed sources. The yarn we use bears the seal of the Forest Steward Council. Whether you use them in the bathroom or to wash the dishes, you'll be doing your part to help the planet and buying hand-made.
  • Cotton Hanging Kitchen Hand Towels - Our cotton hanging hand towels are selling great! Not only are they handy, but they're a great visual accent to your kitchen and they're earth friendly. I have one in my kitchen and I've already cut my paper towel usage by a third. We're working on a few more styles that will be available soon, so check back often. These will be more neutral-colored.
  • Special Toffee Discount! - We're offering a special deal just for our newsletter subscribers, their family and friends. From now until Tuesday, May 25th at 5pm Eastern, order a bag of toffee and mention "Toffee Deal" in the comment field when you place the order. We'll refund $4 to you when we process the order so you pay just $8 for your bag of toffee! That's 33% off our regular price!

Free Recipe - Toffee Crunch Chocolate Trifle

1 previously made unfrosted chocolate cake (store bought or made from a boxed mix)
1 package of chocolate pudding or mousse, prepared
1 4-oz bag JM Creative Toffee Ice Cream Topping
2 small containers of non-dairy whipped topping (Cool-Whip or similar product)

1) Prepare pudding or mousse according to the package directions. Cover with plastic wrap, letting the wrap completely touch the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming. Place in the refrigerator to chill and set.
2) Defrost frozen whipped topping according to package directions. Stir well.
3) If you don't have a trifle dish, use a large see-through glass mixing bowl or any other suitable bowl (it may not be as decorative, but it'll taste the same.
4) Break or cut the chocolate cake into approximately 1/2-inch chunks.
5) Spoon pudding into the bottom of the trifle dish. Spread to cover it by at least 1/2-inch.
6) Sprinkle a thick layer of cake chunks on top of the pudding.
7) Spread a thick layer of whipped topping on top of the cake.
8) Sprinkle toffee topping on top of the whipped topping in an even layer.
9) Repeat from step 5 until the dish is full or you run out of ingredients. The last layer should be whipped topping sprinkled lightly with toffee as a decorative touch.
