Instructions
Sauce:
  1. Melt butter and whisk in onion powder and seasoned salt. Set aside and make sandwiches.
Sandwich:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice rolls in half horizontally so you have a top and bottom half, not tearing rolls apart. Place bottom half of rolls on a baking sheet. Spread the bottom layer of rolls with about half a jar of Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread, then layer the shaved ham, add a layer of sliced cheese, then the shaved turkey and another layer of sliced cheese.
  2. Spread yellow mustard lightly on the cut side of the bun tops, then place it on top of the meat and cheese and bottom bun.
  3. Use a silicone brush and brush the sauce on the assembled sandwiches.
  4. Wrap with foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes to lightly brown the buns.
  5. Optional: Sprinkle with finely minced parsley and serve with apple slices.
  6. Make ahead directions: Assemble sandwiches but do not sauce them. Place sandwiches back in original Kings Hawaiian tray and bag, store in refrigerator or cooler until needed. When ready to serve, simply make the sauce then brush sandwiches with it and follow above baking directions. Sandwiches may need to bake a little longer with the foil on depending on how cold they are.

Decatur is greater! We spent the past two weekends in Decatur, GA and had such a fun time spreading our mountain grown goodness to the Atlanta area.

The AJC Decatur Book Festival is a two day event on the historic downtown square in Decatur, GA.  Celebrating its 11th year, this is the largest independent book festival in the United States.  The festival is family friendly, diverse and well organized, with authors from around the world.

Our booth was part of the Georgia Grown pavilion and we enjoyed catching up with AmericasMart alums from Oliver Farm and Pecan Ridge Plantation, as well as Natalie from Chinese Southern Belle and Georgia Grown Executive Chef Holly Chute.

Rusty Bowers from Pine Street Market was nearby under the Big Green Egg tent with several Eggs fired up and was assisted by friends from the Big Green Egg Culinary Center.

They kept the Eggs going all weekend with Springer Mountain Farms Chicken, Pine Street Market Bacon, okra, peaches and some other things that smelled heavenly. The Culinary Stage hosted a few of my favorite cookbook authors but spread duty called so I missed Marissa McClellan but caught a few minutes of Peter ReinhartEarth Fare from Emory Point was there with a delicious assortment of cheese as well.

We stayed busy fixing samples and talking with people, so I don’t have many pictures to share with you, nor do I have a report on the other authors and events that were there. I would definitely recommend you attend next year based on our experience there though.

The weekend following the Book Festival, we participated in the Locals Pop Up Market in The Cook’s Warehouse in Decatur. This foodie paradise has every kitchen item you could ever want, and we joked with each other that it was important not to spend more then we sold that day.  If you’ve never shopped The Cook’s Warehouse, put them on your To Do List, and  your Santa List! With three locations and cooking classes, its a culinary destination.

Decatur, we love you and thank you for a great couple of weekends. We look forward to coming back soon and sharing more of our mountain goodness with you.

 

Unicoi Preserves is now two years old!

We celebrated our second anniversary last Saturday at Habersham Winery’s 24th Annual WineFest. It’s a fun event and this year there were 20 different Georgia wineries pouring their wines, as well as live music, great food and vendors.

Reflecting back on the two years we’ve been spreading Unicoi Preserves, I can’t help but think of my friends who have talked about their children going through The Terrible Two’s.

A difficult time for parents, toddlers often become frustrated and have temper tantrums. Toddlers feel overwhelmed learning vocabulary and independence. However, The Two’s are also a fun time, with more interaction, activity and personalities developing. Things that may help the frustrated toddler include outside playtime, naps and snacks.

Good advice for toddlers and jelly makers alike.

Every day is a new adventure for us and we are excited to start our second year with a new website, blog and infinite possibilities.
