Christmas favourites and ideas from local farmers and shops
Elevate your appetizers, desserts and even Christmas breakfast by choosing to shop local! We have many local Vernon and Okanagan vendors close by who sell products that complement our haskap products. Here are some festive and local food ideas starting with an appetizer platter, quick and delicious dessert and a holiday season gingerbread pancake recipe for Christmas morning!
Artisanal appetizer platter
There are so many great local shops, markets and farms that have everything you need for a full course Christmas meal. As part of an appetizer platter, haskap sauce pairs really well with goat cheeses like Happy Days Goat Dairy Cheese , local brie or quality cheeses from The Wedge Cheesery. Add a selection of local crackers from Okanagan Rawsome or thin slices of Cheddar Paprika Loaf or French Baguette from Vernon’s Hot Bread Shoppe.
This is a small selection of the many Vernon and Thompson Okanagan farms and local shops but the idea is to look for holiday foods produced as close to home as possible and the small shops featuring those farms and producers.
To complete the platter, add a few crisp apples from Curlew Orchard, a few nuts from Rancho Vignola, olives from The Mediterranean Market and you’ve got a feast of treats sourced locally from farms and small local shops! Top your starter off with a holiday season Vanilla Plum cider from BX Press Cidery or try one of the many berry and fruit liqueurs from Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery and you’re in for a treat!
Festive and delicious dessert
For a quick and delicious dessert our flavourful and tangy haskap syrup is incredible on many of Sweet Hoopla’s ice creams. For the Christmas season try their Chocolate Hazelnut, Eggnog or Baileys ice cream!
Pair Haskap Berry Sauce with your favourite Ice Cream for a delicious dessert!
