16110_picking_apples_520New! Chester Maine’s North Stonington Applesauce.
With its fields and farmlands, miles of stone walls and old apple trees, Chester Maine Road in North Stonington is both picturesque & representative of this town’s rich agricultural history. We thank its residents for allowing us to harvest bushels of this season’s bounty of apples—sweet, tart and grown the way nature intended. We have savored the season by slow cooking in small batches. The resultant applesauce is simply delicious – enhanced with unique ingredients like North Stonington grown quince, locally produced maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla bean and organic cane sugar.  All proceeds benefit the library. While supplies last……Wreaths up next, beginning December 1st.
