KISS Your Old Drinks Goodbye!

This all natural, flavor-infused simple syrup (also known as “KISS”) began as the quintessential solution to coffeehouse syrups loaded with artificial ingredients and bars lacking fresh mint for their Mojitos.

Founder Susan Martinson developed the recipe in her Richmond, VA home. It came about as a shortcut she took while making a Mojito, the popular and refreshing summer cocktail made with fresh mint, lime juice, rum, and dissolved sugar. Rather than muddling the mint leaves, she simply tossed them into a pot of boiling simple syrup and let them steep. To her delight, this step extracted the unmistakable flavor, aroma and color of the leaves, and inspired her to make it available commercially so that anyone could make high-end cocktails at home with minimal effort.

Keep It Simple Syrup is available in five varieties: Spearmint, Lemon Zest, Cinnamon, Ginger, and Sugar Cane.

 

Whitley’s Peanut Factory

Whitley's "Home-Cooked" peanuts have a wonderful, crunchy freshness and distinctive flavor because their peanuts are still made the old-fashioned way-hand cooked, slowly roasted to perfection.  They choose only the highest quality, super extra-large Virginia peanuts which are hand selected for their size and freshness. Each batch is individually cooked with proven, traditional recipes to ensure the crisp, fresh flavor and unique taste for which their peanuts are famous.

Gypsy Hill Foods

Gypsy Hill Foods are hand blended and hand packaged from their recipes. They use many herbs that they grow or that farmers throughout Virginia grow for them. Visit them in the Virginia’s Finest Pavilion.

Do the Jerky-ey!

Lynda and Marcia are fans of the old Western movies – John Wayne, Clint Eastwood (Marcia just calls them The Duke and Clint, of course). In their opinion you can’t really call yourself a true cow”person” (wanna-be) unless you’ve eaten jerky and tried riding a horse.
So they decided to figure it out on their own. They decided that it was very important to create a jerky that was as natural as could be and as healthy as possible. They spared no expense in using the leanest cuts, the lowest fat in the ground meats, and only the necessary amount of preservatives in anything they do. They decided that everything should be homemade in their own kitchen. This was a very time consuming adventure, and as they went along experimenting, they shared their discoveries with their neighbors, friends, and work associates. After awhile, they found ourselves filling request orders. Seems as though they had finally discovered the jerky that matched their image of the old West. And people liked it! Hence, “Do The Jerk-ey!” was born.
