Happy Easter!

Happy April!  Month of April Fools Day, Easter and Administrative Professionals Day!  Have you ordered your Double Smoked Ham for Easter yet?

 The Hog Sale Has been EXTENDED!! Did you miss out on our Hog Sale?  We have decided to extend it through the end of April!  Order your Whole or Half Hog for $2.35/lb.  Please call (608) 526-3112  to order!

Have you stopped in for an ice cream cone yet?  We are proud to serve Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream! We’d love to hear your favorite!  Just a reminder…we do stop serving ice cream 10 minutes prior to closing.  Not in the mood for ice cream? (What?!!)  We also carry an assortment of Fudge an Nuts from the D&D Candy Factory.

Do you have a cute picture enjoying a cone with us?  We’d love you to share it on our Facebook page!

What wine pairs well with my Easter Dinner?

Not sure what wine to pair with your Holmen Locker Double Smoked Ham?

We suggest  Elmaro Vineyard’s Edelweiss or Elmaro Rosa…which we happen to have in stock!

Edelweiss: Semi-Sweet white wine with mild, fruity labrusca flavors. The Edelweiss grapes were harvested in three different vineyards in Vernon Country, Wisconsin.

Elmaro Rosa: Sweet Red Wine with notes of Concord grape, sassafras and plum.

How do I cook my Double Smoked Ham?

Double Smoked Ham is a holiday favorite. Here are easy cooking instructions: put the ham in a roaster; pour a can of 7-UP over the ham; cover the ham; then bake 10 minutes per pound of ham at 325-degrees. This ham is a fully cooked product, so all you need to do is heat it thoroughly. During the last 15 minutes of baking time, put honey, orange marmalade and brown sugar on top of the ham and let it melt in to the ham.

The Wine Bar will be Closed Friday, April 14th.  It will be open April 21st and 28th  from 4-7:30pm

Mark your calendars! Friday, May 12th join us for a free Wine Tasting from 6-7pm. We will be sampling Pali Wines from California.

RECIPE CONTEST

Since September is our Ground Beef Sale, submit your favorite recipes using Ground Beef to our Facebook page by September 30th for a chance to win 5 pounds of 85% Lean Ground Beef!  There are no limits to the number of entries BUT we are looking for casseroles, meatloaf or soup recipes.  (You know…good Fall comfort food!)

Thank you to everyone who entered our August recipe contest!  Lisa Wolters was our winner with this recipe for Potato Soup
1 garlic clove, minced
1 sm. sweet onion chopped (optional)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 qt. fresh “green” beans, snapped in to 2″ pieces (pole, bush, green, purple, dragon, rattlesnake beans etc. or any combo of fresh “green” beans)
5 med. red potatoes, scrubbed and cut in to 2″ cubes
1 lb. bacon ends, cut in to 1″ pieces
Water
2 cups chicken stock (optional, may use only water)
2-3 cups milk or half and half cream
Black pepper to taste
Salt to taste

Saute garlic and onions in olive oil in a lg. dutch oven or stock pot. Add bacon ends and saute slightly. Remove from heat. When slightly cooled (enough to prevent bacon grease from splattering when adding water) add potatoes and just enough water to cover. Simmer potatoes for (about 8mn). Add green beans with just enough water or chicken stock to cover. Simmer until potatoes and beans are softened. Add milk or half and half and simmer just until heated through. ( I tend to add more milk to the recipe. If I have half and half or cream I add less). The bacon ends (and chicken stock if added) lend salt to the taste so be sure to only add salt if necessary. Best served hot with a bit of fresh ground black pepper on each bowl and a crusty sourdough bread for dipping in to the soup. Versions of this recipe have been a late summer staple in our family for many generations.
