40 years ago, coffee was nothing more than a caffeine delivery vehicle. It didn’t really matter how it tasted, it just had to slap you awake in the morning and prop you up through a long afternoon. Nowadays, things have changed. Coffee is now about pleasure. It’s that special moment when your hand is warmed by the cup, you savor the aroma, and then you take a sip. That sip is the culmination of hard work, passion, and years of practice. Which means, that sip has to be perfect. That sip, is the LoneStar difference. Located in the heart of Chico, Texas, LoneStar Roasters crafts and sells wonderfully roasted coffee beans to the market. Among these are Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, Ethiopian Sidamo, Costa Rica La Pastoria, Hawaiian Hazelnut, and theirs truly, Texas Pecan. Taste the LoneStar difference. Change your day the LoneStar way.
Using “Water Bath Techniques,” Olde Tyme Canning is known for producing pickles and pickled canned goods at the local farmers markets in Wise County, Texas. They also have jelly, jams and preserves available including Strawberry, Strawberry jalapeño, Mango jalapeño, Blueberry Cinnamon, Ginger Pear and Mixed Berry Spice. This year they have started offering “Canning classes” using the USDA material to help share the “Olde Tyme way of preserving food.” This is a dying art that generations of people have lost learning from their parents, being replaced by fast food and convenient less healthy options. In addition, Olde Tyme Canning also offer “organic pickles” and other items.
