Hooray! Hot sauce day is finally here! After fermenting for 16 weeks (some of them for over a year!) we are finally ready to take these beautiful peppers and make them shine. So exciting... can’t wait to share them with everyone. With thanks to J F Organics for the peppers and master preserver Hae Jung Cho for her expertise in our first of many hot sauce days! Today we’re working on Red Serrano, Green Jalapeño and Habanero with more varieties to follow! My mouth is already on fire 😅 BEST DAY EVER!#openfacefoodshop #putapickleonit #farmersmarket #westadams #healthyeating #midcity #danish #bestsandwiches #hotsauce #spicy #seela ...

Just in time for fall, new Open Face grilled cheese and soup! Danish Havarti and English White Cheddar with charred broccolini, chili aioli on toasted Nathan's sourdough. We added some spicy pickled Calabrian peppers just because 🙂
Today's soup is an heirloom tomato soup made from one ingredient only- Munak Ranch Celebrity tomatoes. These tomatoes were so good we didn't even add salt!
Tomato season is almost over though, so don't miss this classic taste of late summer.

Come enjoy this beautiful fall day at Open Face Food shop! #openfacefoodshop #putapickleonit #farmersmarket #westadams #healthyeating #midcity #danish #bestsandwiches

As our summer canning run draws to a close we thought we would share this with you. It made us smile.

This is how many “Peters Honey“ figs we put in jars for the new menu (and for all of you). That doesn’t include Mission or Osborn figs 🙂
We also did over 400 pounds of peaches of five different varieties from 3 different farms, 300 pounds of plums of four different varieties, 5 hot sauces, 2 tomato sauces and ENDLESS pickles…

We want to thank everyone again for their support. We Will continue to do our best to support our local farmers and friends, and we are really looking forward to being open again starting Saturday, September 26th!

Don’t worry, though. We will still have the beautiful farmers market boxes for you on weekends and we hope to see you all really soon!
