We are onto our second challenge within the Dark Days Challenge. Valentine’s Day Sweets. The objective is to try to use ingredients as local as possible to make some sweet treats leading up to Valentine’s Day.
Sweet… right! Well, I have mentioned this before, but because this is a challenge to make something sweet, it is worth mentioning again. Sweets are just not high on my list of things to make. Now it has been said and it out of the way.
So, what do I do when I am challenged to make something sweet? For this, I definitely needed to think outside the box. Even if I did decided on a sweet treat, I would be challenged again. Flour – nope, haven’t found it locally yet. Sugar – nope, haven’t found it locally yet. Organic; no problem. Local; problem.
The big reveal…
- Sweet Potatoes – Boggy Creek Farms – 76 miles
- Butter – used cream from milk – Strykly Dairy – 100 miles
- Honey – Round Rock Honey – 91 miles
All Local. All Sweet.
