Let it Rue: Favorite Holiday Treats from Inside Stonewall Kitchen


Stonewall Kitchen

Cinnamon and nutmeg’s spicy intrigue, melted butter and citrus sparkles, pomegranates that pop with a crimson sweetness – the great thing about the holidays is that there are nearly limitless opportunities to indulge in its gastronomical offerings. Our appreciation of certain holiday tastes and smells comes from the comfort of tradition and crystal-platter-served memories.

This is truly what the holidays are all about for each of us at Stonewall Kitchen. It’s a tradition that lends itself to sharing – we instinctively pass along these treasures to someone else. And, as we grow in our taste for food, new dishes may come into play. Perhaps, (and we’re lucky), it’s where we work, or a spouse’s family, or a friend that lifts the lid on a new dish of intrigue.

Here are some of the offerings we associate with the season.

Melissa, graphic designer and painter of our holiday confections, always adds roasted garlic potatoes and vegetables to her repertoire.

Laurie, e-Commerce Administrator, can’t get enough of our Thai Marinade and loves making the Thai Marinade Shrimp as an appetizer.

Andy, in Production, insists on spicy Corn Relish in his homemade corn chowder – perfect after an afternoon of heavy shopping bag lifting.

Leslie likes Fig & Walnut Butter Bruschetta (crusty bread topped with gorgonzola and Fig & Walnut Butter) – the perfect appetizer for brunch, a holiday lunch, or cocktail party.

Deb, our Benefits Specialist, loves to serve an Old Farmhouse Chutney and cream cheese appetizer.

Jeanne, our Retail Operations Assistant, loves baby back ribs with Maple Chipotle Grille Sauce.

Deb, in Production, prefers anything on the sweeter side, such as our chocolate sauces over strawberries or ice cream or caramel sauce with apples – perfect to keep the kids energized for helping with the decorations.

Cheers to you and baking, cooking, and serving a platter full of memories this holiday season!
