Since 2004 Blue Hill Farm at Stone Barns in the Pocantico Hills has been on a mission to raise awareness about the effect of food choices on our everyday lives. Now the gastronomic purveyors behind New York Mouth are helping make some of the natural flavors of the gorgeous food prepared in Dan Barber's award-winning kitchen available at home.
Jars of apple butter, Hudson Valley honey and plum elderberry, quince and cherry jam make the flavors of Blue Hill ripe for the picking. The intensely rich apple butter comprises just apples, apple cider and brown sugar. The jams are made with the best seasonal ingredients carefully chosen by the Blue Hill chefs, and the Hudson Valley honey is a raw, unpasteurized wild flower variety with a deep color. All of these jars would beautifully compliment a brunch spread or cheese plate set on one of J.K. Adams' North American Maple cow-shaped cutting boards.
Shoppers can also get their hands on Blue Hill pickles, made with Kirby cucumbers and grown by Cherry Lane Farms in Bridgeton, NJ. The New York Mouth team describes the brine as an "incredibly complex" flavor that will "change on your tongue".
New York Mouth is careful to select hand-crafted healthful food products made with local ingredients by independent companies in and around New York. The new partnership with Blue Hills fits in perfectly with their philosophy on food and sustainability initiatives. "We are sort of like an indie music store for food—indie food," says New York Mouth's Craig Kanarick.
With a deep respect for Blue Hill's love of locally sourced ingredients and high-quality foods, New York Mouth is proud to be the only place for people to buy the new jam flavors and apple butter outside the Blue Hill at Stone Barns on-site store.
