  Pears in a lite spiced syrup. Organicly grown right here in the Blockade Runner Orchard and canned in our inspected commercial kitchen. These delicious pears are canned in a light syrup of their own juices, brown sugar, fresh lemon juice and just a splash of Bedford Co.'s finest 100 proof. (Just for flavor mind you.) A very fine unique flavor that's great all by itself or as a condiment. If you are clever it can be used in a host of desserts as well as mixed drinks to boot.

MULLBERRY SYRUP


  Mullberries are in my opinion the most delicious berry of all and the most under utilized. You seldom hear of anyone using them today even though they grow everywhere especially here in the South. I assure you that was not always the case. When I was a child I remember some of the older folks pointing out mullberry trees to me and remarking that when they were children that they helped their mother or grandmother gather berries from that very tree. It was often the youngsters job to climb the tree and shake the branches releasing a "rain storm" of the dark sweet treats. If you saw a very large single tree standing alone in the middle of an otherwise plowed field it was probably a mullberry that the farmer had spared in order to harvest the fruit.

  This year we gathered about 20 gallons of mullberries from our wild mullberry trees so we could make a batch of my favorite, mullberry syrup. I prefer syrup over jelly or jam as it is the most versitile. Pour it over pancakes or icecream. Spoon it onto biscuits or into your coffee. During the holidays it makes a wonderful cordual.

  Now if you have never enjoyed mullberries before then you are in for a real treat. Similar in many ways to wild blackberries but sweeter and much less tart. The seeds are tiny and almost impossible to remove even if you wanted to. Surprisingly the seeds are not hard as you would find in many berries. In texture they are very similar to toasted flax seeds.
  The Eastern cultures attribute many health benifits to this delicous berry as well. But for me it's all about the taste.

RUBBERIZED CLOTH (GUM BLANKET)


  I don't know why it's taken me so long to offer this item for sale other than I've just never thought of it until now. Rubberized cloth was commercially available in the north just as oil cloth was in the south. Anyone who desired a yard of two of either could have just went to the local general store and bought it. The applications for this material were and are endless.
  We are selling the rubberized material in the same size as a gum blanket, 46 inches by 72 inches. I can see a lot of folks using it for just that. What about using it as a waterproof tarp to cover - well just about anything. You don't have to leave it as is, sew several together or cut it up and make what ever you want. It is cloth and sews easily on a home machine. Just paint your seams for a water tight seal. Make a rain slicker or hat. How about a cannon / limber cover? There are some great books out on pre-war rubber products if you need more ideas.

NEW GREY WOOL BLANKET


  Over the past few years the price of just about everything has gone up and up. When ever I can find anything reenactors can use and save a few bucks on I "jump on it". We recently found a small amount of high quality 80 / 20 grey wool blankets that are awesome. I bought them all, I just wish there had been more. Buy now because when they are gone I doubt you will ever find another for this price, only $39.95! They are the same color grey as you normally see in blankets, they are brand new, they measure 80 x 67 inches and weigh 4 lbs. That is a lot of blanket for the price so don't miss out.

CEDAR FILLED SASHET



  After we offered several variations of cedar chips to be used as moth repellent we recieved several suggestions from you. I think it would be wise to take your advice, so we did. Here's what you ask for. A small sashet (approx. 5x5") filled with cedar shavings. Just put one of these in the pocket of your jacket or pants when you store them away. You will never find a moth hole in your clothes again. What could be easier than that.
  For those of you who don't clean your uniform between events, well - you'll be doing us all a favor. Cedar has a pleasant aroma as opposed to your current flavor which makes us think your impression is that of a week old road killed possum smuggler.
  You can just toss one or two of these in any chest or drawer to give all it contains that pleasant aroma as well.
