Folks making fabulous food with our fruit
Here's a shout out to local food folks making scrumptious stuff with our fruit. Visit their websites and establishments to enjoy Smith Orchards fruit on a whole new level!
Spin Cafe (http://www.spincafe.net) 220 North Main Street in Heber City. Winner of many local food awards since they opened in 2007. Great place for lunch or dinner, but you've got to try their gelato and sorbetto! Vince started out making a lovely white peach sorbetto out of our peaches, and now makes yellow peach and pear in season. It's worth the drive just for desert!
Magleby's at Trivani (http://www.maglebys.com) 198 South Main Street in Springville. We feel fortunate to have some of Lenora's prize-winning recipes made with our peaches. The peach cobbler and peach pie are as good as you wish your grandma would have made!
The Paris Bistro (http://www.theparis.net) 1500 South 1500 East, SLC. Eric and Manuel come to the farmer's market each Saturday to purchase local produce for their New American cuisine inspired by Italian, French and Mediterranean food cultures. They make heavenly fruit desserts.
Pioneer Valley (http://www.pioneermarket.com) Orem, UT. Pioneer Valley jams, jellies and syrups are of unparalleled quality. Wayne Parke is a master at bringing out the flavors of fruit in his wonderful concoctions. We love how he captures the tree-ripe flavors of our peaches and apricots in jam and syrup. Our honey apricot barbecue sauce is so wonderful with chicken and pork. Kudos to Wayne for creating a tart cherry topping that is so full of cherries and cherry flavor that Ginny doesn't have to can her own pie filling any more! Pioneer Valley products are shipped all over the country, but you can find them at local grocery stores, and at the SLC Downtown Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Stop by their booth and talk to Wayne and Sherri about their passion for fruit preservation, and try their caramels!
