January 2016 – a new year. Here’s the picture. New. Change. Bright. Good. Positive. See it? That’s it. It is happening as we speak.
Scissortail Provisions is excited. We continue to work with Ben Buie to provide Potbellies with our Ben’s Bread and Butter Jalapeneos. He has graciously brought even more of our products into his newest ventures – Toast and Franklin’s on Main Street Broken Arrow. Check out (and buy) the paintings on the walls while you are there – Scissortail Provisions!
Then there is the enthusiastic crew at Blue Moon Cafe on Peoria Tulsa. When Al tries our krauts you can see the inventive ideas exploding around a new special. Now he can feature a kraut we designed especially for his shop (and we even sell it at market).
We have a new boss in town. She has just come in from a six year stint of ultra food experiences in NYC with a side of Asheville, NC thrown in for good measure (and a sweet touch of Alabama). Expect to see a few changes.
We hope to see you in the picture.
Clear, dark, quiet night – waiting for the dawn for the crowds and activity of market. Hoping
- for empty boxes to take to the recycling bins
- for familiar faces collecting provisions for their pantries
- for bright, tiny faces delighting in handmade stickers
- for new faces trying new bites
- for old friends branching into new tastes
- for warm hands and feet
- for goodness, joy and health for us all.
What a lucky day to have off from the farmers market! Twenty-four degrees at six AM this morning just seems daunting for standing outside on pavement. Would the pickles be frozen? Surely the sauces would be almost solid. Tastings would be pretty complicated. So – hurray for a day off!!
Meanwhile, the kitchen is busy with some spectacular new fermentations that should be ready for our winter market next weekend (Saturday, 8 November) at 41st and Peoria in the parking lot east of Whole Foods beginning at 8:30 until 11. There will be beautiful new fruit vinegars that could be the perfect hostess gift for the upcoming holidays.
We will be digging out the heavy winter gear and looking forward to seeing the regulars and making new friends. To our fans and followers – thanks for your blessings, you give us hope.♥
