In conjunction with our “Power of the Peach” promotion, we are thrilled to introduce a new canning and preserving line from the Kilner® Jar Co. In the late 1840’s John Kilner started manufacturing the first canning jars in Dewsbury, England. For nearly a 100 years the Kilner® family owned and operated the company. By the late 1930’s competitive activity forced the bankruptcy of the Kilner® Jar Co. The good news for us is that even though the design of the jars have changed over the years the guiding principle that John Kilner built the business on has remained the same – the preservation of food without artificial preservatives.
Today, there are really two styles of Kilner® jars: the Cliptop, which has a glass lid and rubber seal and closed using a metal clip; and the preserve jar, which features a 2-part lid, a metal screw band, and a metal vacuum seal disc, along with a selection of critical preserving accessories.

Why Are Our Peaches So Sweet?
Let us introduce you to the refractometer! Say what?! The refractometer measures the sugar level in soft fruits and can tell you whether the peach you are about to bite into is at its prime eating, or if you need to wait on it. This saves you from biting into an off-putting, flavorless fruit only to leave you disappointed. Neat, huh? A drop of fruit juice on a refractometer lens is all that is needed to measure plant sugars and acid ratios - also known as brix levels. Higher brix levels usually equate to a much more flavorful, aromatic, sweeter, and juicier piece of fruit.
Brix levels are a… Read More
It’s summer, temperatures are rising so what better way to cool yourself down than with an ice cold beverage and fresh sushi roll made with fresh peaches. Really, peaches with sushi? Remarkably, peaches and other soft fruit go very well with sushi when combined with quality ingredients.
We start with a sheet of nori (dried seaweed) and cover it with our own special sushi rice that was blended with our very own vinegar. Next, we lay fresh cooked shrimp tempura on top of a couple of avocado slices and cucumber. Lastly, we cover the roll with fresh peach salsa. The end result is a sushi roll that is complete in all sushi flavors: sweet with a little spice, crispy, and creamy. Available now during the four week span when the peaches are at their best and will be at a special price starting July 16, 2014. Stop by and check out the Bristol Farms Sushi Chefs as they create the new Power of the Peach Roll and other unique Bristol Farms sushi Read More
Our Power of the Peach promotion is still going strong! This year's fruit is amazingly sweet and delicious. With varietals like the Summer Flame, Elegant Lady, and Zee Lady peaches, each is unique to their own appearance and flavors. We are currently celebrating the weeks of available Zee Lady Peaches. The Zee Lady variety of yellow peach is "the classic" fruit you remember from when you were a kid. Pick one off of Grandma's tree where the aromas and flavors of summer are forever embedded in your memory. Its flavor is perfectly peach and one of the best varieties grown by Summeripe. This is the perfect peach for cobbler, pie, or a tart. Or, perfectly enjoyed in a very simple dessert recipe like the Peach and Almond Crisp recipe provided by our partners, Summeripe. How have you been enjoying peaches this summer? Tell us! On their own, grilled, in a pie?
