- Testimonial: “I am a member of Weight Watchers. At yesterday’s meeting, another member mentioned that she had discovered your salad dressings. At Weight Watchers we turn our food into a certain number of points. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I certainly got excited to hear that 1 portion (2 tablespoons) of your salad dressing is ZERO points! So I decided to try it…that afternoon I bought the blue cheese flavor. I must admit that when I saw the zeros all over the nutrition label - 0 calories, 0 fat - I automatically assumed it might also be “0” in flavor. Boy was I (happy to be) wrong! It is delicious! I am assuming that your other flavors are too, so I intend to try them as well. These will now be my permanent salad dressings!”

- TESTIMONIAL: We opened our first jar of Fruit Spread this morning and it is delicious. Even though my husband does not have diabetes like I do, I have been trying to get him to eat the “sugar free” products that I do. Even he commented on how good your Fruit Spread is. Thank you so very much for developing these quality products.” Nell M.

Peppermint Pig (and his friends)
- Are you familiar with the tale of the peppermint pig? While the pig is honored in Victorian holiday tradition as a symbol of good health, happiness, and prosperity, these special “Peppermint Pigs” are made in Saratoga Springs, NY and, as their website tells us, now represent so much more. They represent an old-fashioned Christmas. There’s also Pigsy Dust, a Pig Puddle, and cracked pig (small bitesized pieces). Besides their famous pigs, Saratoga Sweets is also known for their delicious chocolates. Yummmm….

Elf Michelle’s Winning Pie Recipe
- Elf Michelle won the pie contest through Finger Lakes Wine Country! Below you’ll find her winning combo!
APPLE PIE-EYED Crust -
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes 1/2 cup chilled lard, cut into 1/2 inch cubes 5 tablespoons (or more) ice water
Filling - 2/3 cup Thompson seedless raisins 1 cup Finger Lakes Distilling Maplejack Liqueur 9 NYS Cortland apples, peeled, cored & sliced thin 1/2 cup sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon 3 tablespoons butter
Preparation - Place raisins in a shallow, non metallic container and cover with Maplejack liqueur. Cover and let sit for at least 1 day but preferrably 3 days. Uncover occasionally to stir and add more liqueur as needed so that the raisins are always completely immersed. When you are ready to make the pie, drain the raisins, reserving the liqueur.
Crust - Mix flour, sugar and salt in food processor. Add butter and lard, blend with pulse button until mixture resembles coarse meal. Transfer mixture to medium bowl. Add 5 tablespoons ice water and mix with fork until dough begins to clump together, adding more water by teaspoonfuls if dry. Gather dough together. Divide dough in half; flatten each half into disk. Wrap each disk in plastic and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Soften slightly at room temperature before rolling out.
Mix sugar & cinnamon together in a small bowl. Line bottom of pie dish with one crust, making sure it overhangs the pie dish enough to crimp together with the top crust. Arrange apple slices in the crust making sure to cover the entire bottom without any gaps, then continue until the crust is half full. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar around the entire top of the apples. Sprinkle half of the raisins on top of apples evenly. Repeat for a second layer to the top of the crust. Dot butter around the top of the apples.then top with second crust. Crimp crust edges together & pinch in a wave pattern. Tear off thin strips of aluminum foil and fold over the crimped crust. Place pie on a baking tray and position rack in center of the oven. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then turn the oven down to 375 and bake a further 35 - 40 minutes or until apples are soft and crust is golden. Cool for 45 minutes and serve warm with vanilla ice cream with remaining maplejack liqueur drizzled over ice cream.
