Friday is Pie Day October 17

Wow, it is already the middle of October! Summer is finally over. We are pretty much done with peach, except for a few hand pies, and nectarines are long gone. Rhubarb is dwindling fast, but we still have Triple Berry. That means it is time for our fall and winter pies to come out. Pies like Apple, Pear, Pecan, Pumpkin and Sweet Potato. Speaking of Sweet Potato, we will be sampling our Sweet Potato Pie for the first of our holiday pie tasting events this Saturday, October 18 from noon to three (or until we run out).

Hey! Did you know we have a new savory pie? That is right, we’ve been working on a Pulled Pork Pie for you. It is made with pork from Devil’s Gulch Ranch, caramelized onions and our own bourbon barbecue sauce. And if you haven’t tried our Veggie Empanada, that’s new, too!

If you happen to be west of here, stop by  our booth at the Occidental Farmers Market for some savory and sweet pies on Friday from four to dusk. This market runs through October. Halloween is the last day.

It’s Pawpaw season

Hey Everybody, Happy Friday!

What is this funny fruit that looks like a small mango and has a row of seeds in the middle? It is soft and custardy and you can eat it with a spoon. It is fragrant and smells and tastes kind of like a banana crossed with a mango. It is a pawpaw! The pawpaw is the largest edible fruit native to North America. According to the Kentucky State University Cooperative Extension Program, “Pawpaws grow wild over a wide range of latitude, from the Gulf Coastal plain to southern Michigan”. You don’t see it offered commercially because it doesn’t store or ship well. So why am I talking about it? We have grown some here in Petaluma! We don’t have enough to make a bunch of pie with, but we do have enough to offer a few tastes to curious people.

If you are interested in trying this unusual fruit, please fill out this form and we will try to accommodate you.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the year 5775! Shana tovah u’metukah, Everybody! It is Rosh Hashanah and we wish you “a good and sweet new year.” If we baked bread we would make you some Challah, but it looks like you’ll have to settle for delicious sweet pies or some nice fruit.

Pomegranates, apples and honey are also great foods to eat for Rosh Hashanah

We still have summer fruits, but we are getting word that peaches and nectarines will end earlier this year and our rhubarb is in short supply. As September marches on, we will see our fruit pie selection dwindle and we will see more pumpkin, sweet potato, apple, quince, figs and pear! We are a little early for meyer lemon, though. For the moment, we still have plenty of delicious summer fruit! Hopefully we can stretch the rhubarb so everyone can get some.
