HeathGlen Farms

HeathGlen Farms SyrupsWith an emphasis on shopping local during Coronavirus, I want to call out one of the makers I first met at the St. Paul Farmers Market. Dorothy Stainbrook farms her 23 acres organic berry farm in Forest Lake and turned those lovely juicy organic berries into jams, jellies, chutneys, and beverage syrups that she markets as HeathGlen Farm & Kitchen. In 2016 her blueberry pomegranate jelly won a Good Food Award, and in 2015 her ginger lime beverage syrup was a finalist in that same competition. Try her strawberry lime syrup in your favorite sparkling wine or champagne, or her ginger lime syrup with gin and ginger beer for a “Minnesota Mule.” You can find HeathGlen Farms syrups on the shelves sSurdyks Liquor, Golden Fig and other specialty food stores or on the HeathGlen website.
