Genghis Khan Relish

Did you know Genghis Khan invented the hamburger? The Golden Horde of Mongols travelled across two continents wreaking havoc and fun and the riders had little time to dismount to dine. So they packed meat patties under their saddles before riding into battle! Talk about fast food and building up an appetite! The patties were tenderized between the saddle and the horse's backs and eaten raw. Well, what else could we call our best burger relish than after the 'Emperor of Emperors!' Eat slow please.

As for butter versus margarine, I trust cows more than chemists.
Joan Gussow - Assistan Professor of Nutrition, Columbia University.

the Snow Moon

The Harvest Moon has set, the Hunter’s Moon is near, and Winter threatens with a scowl and a chill wind. But the bounty of summer lies secure within Auntie Jane’s jars. Preserving fresh fruit and vegetables at their peak of freshness and ripeness means more vitamins per serving. Crops that go directly from field to processor retain vitamins better than those that are shipped across country and sit for days in produce bins or at home in refrigerators. Because Auntie Jane’s food preserves are packed at the peak of harvest, as the produce is picked, it is also at its nutrient peak and healthful best. Fruits and vegetables especially have the highest nutrient content when they are ripest and what could be better than watching the arrival in February of the Snow Moon while enjoying the warm taste of the delicious flavours of last summer?

The Lie

So Jack knocks on my door. What'dya want? I says. Just wanna grab a little milk, you got some? he says. I go = Nope, fresh out, no got. Zilch, fridge empty. Cows on strike. Jack thinks a bit, he ain't too bright, he goes = You always got milk, why you standin' front a the fridge like that? Jack has this look, he narra's his eyes. I'm spread over the fridge door grippin' tight. He sees the white knuckles and sweat on my brow. What you doin'? he asks. The jig's up. Jack ain't that dumb. He gets an edge in his voice, sorta accusin' like = You got some left, don't you? I go = No way, I tol' you, all gone. Jack grabs my arm, tryin' ta pry it offa th' door. You got some! He shouts. His left eye got it's own wobble now. I shouts back = No! He yellin' louder = You got some a Auntie Jane's Green Hornet dills in there! You tol' me they was all gone! You lied! I says = No Green Hornet dills in there, really. We struggle. Jack fell down. Really.
I only got enough Green Hornet Dills left ta last till March.
Jack's stayin' at his Mom's till his jaw heals. Auntie Jane broke up our friendship.

Auntie Jane's Apple Sauce

Exactly the right mixture of apple, and Auntie Jane uses four varieties in hers! You should have some in your pantry for unexpected guests. (Well even expected) Just whip up some whipping cream, mix with our apple sauce and voila! Apple Cream, a tasty dessert and no one even knows how you did it!Posted by Hello

Green Relish & Bruscetta

We've lost count of the ways one can use these two. How about a French baguette, sliced straight through, with bruschetta piled on? Do the same thing with a little heated Brie cheese and a dab of Auntie Jane's Cranberry Sauce, open a bottle of Montepulciano D'Abruzzo and sit on the floor with your love! Posted by Hello

Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.

Pickled Onions

Eat these in front of children, they love watching you screw up your face. Mmmm. Posted by Hello

Dill Pickles

The dill pickles are sooooo good. We even know one guy who after eating them all, tried to put other pickles in our juice, hoping to retain the flavour that Auntie Jane perfects, alas, it is to no avail and he waits eagerly for the next batch. Posted by Hello

Berry sauces

Our Blueberry and Strawberry sauces are made with ONLY British Columbia blueberries and fresh Fraser Valley strawberries which, everyone knows, are the most flavourful anywhere. (not like those imported strawberries that are all white and woody inside) Of course we have limited production as our strawberry farmers only get one crop. And we don't do that many blueberries because we want the bears to get some too.
