We are absolutely thrilled that we are welcoming back artist couple Amy and Tracy Anderson. They both do completely different artistry - Amy is the master of the sewing machine and Tracy is an incredible blown glass artist. I can't wait to see what they've come up with for this years sale.
When they deliver there items, be sure to keep an eye on facebook and instagram for some photos. You won't be disappointed!
How many Handcrafted Hoedown for the Holidays have you been a part of?
I think this is the fourth year we've participated. What is your favorite thing about this craft sale?
We'll, obviously it's visiting the orchard, petting the kittens, and eating apple cider donuts. What kind of gifts do you look for when you go shopping for the holiday's?
I'm a big fan of the fingerless mittens made from old sweaters...hoping to find a couple more pairs this year. And it's always fun to see everyone's creativity. Please share your favorite holiday recipe:
Every year I make the Cream Caramels from my mother's old Betty Crocker cookbook #ad. *I only heat mine to 245 degrees so they're chewier and less like hard candy. I use a 9" square pan so they are thinner and I cut them into 100 little logs that I wrap in waxed paper. Heavenly.
Bring slowly to a boil, stirring constantly ...
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 cup cream
Then stir in gradually ...
1 more cup cream
Stir frequently as mixture begins to thicken ... constantly as it darkens. Cook to 254 degrees (a little dropped into cold water forms a hard ball). Pour into buttered 7" square pan with 1/2 cup broken nuts scattered over the bottom. When cold, cut into squares.
