Shifting Gears September 7, 2010

Posted by Saara in Admin, Offerings, Shoulder Season.

Well, that was fun! Summer is over according to the calendar, but hopefully we’ll get some warm days as we adjust to the new season of school and harvest.

We had a great last day of the summer season in both the Cafe and the Candy Shop despite the rain. Thanks to everyone that came out and paid us a visit. It was especially nice to hear from customers who has been touring the West coast and sampling chowders. They voted The C Shop clam chowder #1 along the Washington and Oregon coasts!

Even though the Cafe portion is closed, The C Shop Candy Shop is open! This week we’ll be open daily from noon to 6pm this week and Thursday-Monday thereafter. We have a few loaves of bread that we froze from yesterday’s bake and there will be cookies and cinnamon rolls available regularly. There’s even some of that clam chowder left so feel free to ask for it to go in cups, pints or quarts.

Bread, cookies, cinnamon rolls and our other regular offerings are also available by special order. Please allow us a couple of days to fill your order, but feel free to request a dozen oatmeal raisin cookies or loaves of bread for your special event or your freezer. More details available in the shop or give us a call.

With it slowing down in the shop, we hope to have more time for doing all those things that we meant to do during the season, but couldn’t find the time. There’ll be more blogging for starters. I want to show you some of our wonderful antique equipment and how we use it. Our special candies that we make also deserve to be featured. We’ve been playing with seafoam lately. Come give it a try! The cooler weather also means that we get to work chocolate again. Fun!

A little less fun, but very satisfying is the ongoing remodeling that will also be continuing. First on the list: a new roof!

CU at The C Shop!

Saara, is it possible that the candy shop makes pecan rolls? I have been looking for some with penuche filling – I would love to buy some if you make them – thanks so much! Barb (from RFC days)

Sorry for the delay, Barb! Just trying to get back into the swing of things after vacation. Am checking on the pecan rolls for you. πŸ˜€

In the summertime, we make pecan rolls with a divinity center, and we sell some that we purchase with a nougat center that is similar to penuche butnot as much brown sugar taste. I haven’t mastered the art of penuche yet. I tried my mom’s recipe once. It was always good when she made it, but mine
was really grainy and I haven’t tried it since. Pat

So there you go. The pecan rolls with divinity center are quite yummy, of course. πŸ˜€
