Just discovered that has published my sorbet recipe. Read the reviews and loved the feed back. My husband and I vacationed in Door County, Wisconsin this year. Got my 2 lb. bucket of pitted  and frozen sour cherries and will make this years batch soon. Also stocked up on wild rice while up there even though there's a new bulk food store in my town that has a good price for it. 

Picking up local food products is our plan for shopping on vacation trips. We bring along a good sized cooler to keep perishables safe for the ride home. We discovered two new artisan cheese shops in Door County this year. One had some "cave cured" cheese. We picked up one that was a cave cured Cardona. Have never heard of  Cardona cheese before. It is a sharp hard cheese. The cave curing imparts a mineral taste to the cheese that I liken to the mineral taste of Spanish wines. So I find pairing this particular cheese with a Tempranillo wine is perfect.

We picked up chopped cherry jam and cherry juice this year along with some locally made wines. Got some Wisconsin maple syrup. The local farm markets sell many varieties of canned local produce. This year we picked up a jar of spicy pickled cabbage. It's sort of like Wisconsin kimchee (sp?).

Saw one farm report while up there that Wisconsin will have a bumper crop of cranberries. Evidently Wisconsin provides 52 % of the cranberry crop in this country on average each year. I'm interested to see if the price is less per pound this year. I'll stock up in my freezer if it is.

My gas grill is no more so not able to grill on my Sunday off. I'm going back to a charcoal kettle type grill.

To all my readers: Have a great Labor Day holiday?

You sound like us - we like to buy local foods while on trips. That cave cured cheese sounds very interesting. I'll have to keep my eyes open for that! I love sour cherries. We had a local farm that would sell those huge tubs of cherries and I always stocked up for pies, etc. Well, the farm just closed up - so now I'm out my cherry supplier. Visiting wineries on our travels is a favorite past-time of mine as well.

The foods sound heavenly! My sister visited that area and really enjoyed it but she didn't say much about the foods. Maybe she brought stuff back and just didn't want to share. LOL!

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
