It is hard to believe that October is already here and Halloween is around the corner. They say time flies when you’re having fun – and that is certainly true for our friends at Steve & Dan’s Fresh BC Fruit who just finished another busy summer market season. Now that the hustle and bustle has slowed, you can still find them year-round at Bountiful Farmers’ Market and at Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market. Their delicious fruit will keep your tummy full of nutrients throughout the colder months. And to keep you nice and cozy, you have to try their DIY apple cider kit and other fall harvest favorites! Simply mix one of their delicious apple juices with the included spice pack from Square 1 Coffee and heat it up to your liking over the stove. Delish! These kits also make the perfect Christmas gift (and no, it’s not too early to start Christmas shopping).
Here are some of our other favourite ways to eat their fruit, other than the obvious choice of enjoying it as-is:
- Make a jam!
- Create apple nachos by slicing thin pieces of apple and drizzling with peanut butter, honey, and chocolate chips.
- Mix berries into your favourite salad dressing.
- Add fruit to your oatmeal.
- Blend fresh or frozen berries into a smoothie.
Steve & Dan’s team would like to thank everyone for their support over the past year, and acknowledge their success wouldn’t be possible without all of you. They look forward to continuing to provide fresh fruit to their amazing customers all year long. And we are so grateful they have markets available with their great fruit including the many fall harvest favorites .
