The coronavirus pandemic has put life on hold for many Americans. That means staying in, visiting the grocery less frequently and trying to maintain your sanity. The lack of social interaction and a desire to return to things as usual may leave you feeling frustrated or discouraged. Although we wish we had a crystal ball that looked into the future, there’s no good estimate on a timeline. Even scientists and epidemiologists have mixed opinions.
While it might be tempting to curl up in a ball and take a long nap, there are other ways you can stay positive during this time of crisis. One of the easiest ways? Stock up your pantry. As you’ve probably already realized, many local grocery stores now feature empty shelves. Some places are even setting limits on the amount of food you can buy. Not us.
Our online store, the Country Spoon, is well-stocked and home to dozens of delicious canned goods to tide you over during the long weeks (and perhaps months) ahead. Let’s take a closer look at some of our most popular items. We’re confident you’ll find something both you and your family can enjoy.
Cherry Jam. Our delicious cherry jam is made using Montmorency cherries grown right here on our high altitude farm. The unique growing conditions, including a dry climate and cool mountain breeze, ensure our tart cherries are sweeter than their cousins grown elsewhere. Our cherry jam pairs well with toast, peanut butter or as a dessert topping. Who knows? You might even find yourself spooning a scoop (or two) come snack time.
Apricot Jam. Not into cherries? No problem. Our apricot jam is equally delicious. The apricots we use are grown right here in the state of Utah. They’re sweet, flavorful and tangy. Spread it on your favorite toast or mix it into a chutney or marinade. There’s nothing our apricot jam can’t do.
Dried cherries. In addition to jams and jellies, we also produce dried cherries. We have plenty of options to choose from. Whether you’re a fan of our classic dried tart cherry bites or you have a sweet tooth, we’ve got you covered. We offer yogurt-covered cherries, chocolate-covered cherries and even dried sweet cherries. Like our jams, these dried bites of deliciousness compliment cereals and granola, yogurt and baked goods like breads and muffins.
