Lemon Apple Chicken Recipe

This week we are featuring our Lemon Apple Jam which has the warm flavours of our locally rescued apples paired with fresh lemons.  To help you to "think beyond the bread box" we are offering you a couple of recipes - a muffin and a main course. We are selling at the Downtown Farmer's Market in city hall every Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm.  We can now be found at the Castledowns Farmer's Market which is on Wednesday afternoons from 4 to 8 pm.  Drop by if you are in the area and see what we are sampling that day.  For the first 2 weeks in January you will find the Lemon Apple Jam and as usual there will be a couple other items to taste.  We have over 100 different items as we do not bring them with us each week, thus you will find something different every time you drop by.  IF you have a specific request, please call or e-mail and we will try to have your request ready at the market of your choice for you.

Our business phone number is 780-244-0129  and you can contact us at  info@fruitsofsherbrooke.ca
