PESTO
VEGETABALL’S FARM

Claremont, New Hampshire

Darlene Ball makes this fragrant, flavorful pesto with fresh basil (sourced locally in season), Parmesan and Romano cheeses, pine nuts, garlic, and a secret ingredient: butter. It tastes so incredible we can’t help but wonder why we didn’t think of that before. Her pesto adds robust flavor to pasta, homemade pizza, scrambled eggs, toasted panini, and even soup. We’ll even own up to eating it straight out of the container.

Suggested Retail Price: $6.50 per 7-ounce container

Where to Find It: Select co-op and specialty food stores throughout New Hampshire and Vermont, including Roy’s in Peterborough, NH.

Made with local fresh blueberries and pure maple syrup, their Balsamic Blueberry & Maple Dressing is a standout, lending a unique, sweet, and fruity tang to salads, poultry, and seafood.

Suggested Retail Price: $10 per 8.5-ounce bottle

    We recently picked up some containers of this pesto which Darlene had donated to the 2015 NHPTV auction. As a treat, she gave us a container.

    WOW!

    This is incredible! The Parmesan cheese, the garlic, and the olive oil came through as a wonderfully savory treat.

    A week later, with her pesto gone, we bought some Pesto from a local health food store. Blah! After looking at the ingredients, it was lacking the pine nuts (almonds instead), they used sunflower oil instead of olive oil, as well as other differences.

    We can’t wait ’til next year and we go back and pick up her NEXT donation!!!!
