Reintroduction of our Blog

Well hello again! If you have wondered where I have been, I had to take some time off in order to concentrate on the many other hats I wear as a small business owner! So I am glad to get an opportunity to write to you all again :)

Let me take a moment to reintroduce us to our new readers.

We are so grateful you chose to follow along with us out of ALL the choices out there!!! We are honored for you to be a part of our story. I tell you time sure gets away quickly doesn't it? As a small family owned business it definitely flies by!

We are Martin and Crystal, the owners of Troutt Old Time General Store and Market! We have been opened for over 9 years. Goodness what a ride it has been! There have been mountain tops and valleys, but through it all the Lord has been ever faithful!

To all our newcomers, we hope you feel welcomed and encouraged through our store, our Blogs and social media! There will be A LOT for you all to see and experience through the year! Stop by soon and often!

Since we last wrote to you, we have been super busy in our kitchen canning the delicious Summer produce! It would be very difficult for us to choose a favorite from our stash. LOL We really enjoy eating them all! Here are a few samples of some of our newer selections.

Our very popular Perfect Pizza Sauce is "perfect" for homemade pizzas. Try one of our pizza crust mixes and for extra seasoning, grab one of our in-house pizza seasoning blend packs. YUM!

These Sweet Curry Spiced Pickles are perfect to eat straight from the jar or add to your homemade chicken/tuna salads. They will definitely not last long before you eat them all!

What says Summertime more than a fresh peach pie? Our Peach Pie Jam will have your mouth watering for sure. Add this delicious jam to your toast, bagels, or grab one of our packages of authentic English crumpets!

We have our BIG Summer Open House coming up starting on Thursday, July 11th and going through Saturday, July 13th. What a tasty time to stop in to the store! We will have many samples, new selections and more! We look forward to seeing everyone!

Well it is time for this week's Blog recipe!

If you enjoy the recipes we share, be sure to let us know!

If you are like us and are growing a garden, then you probably have squash and zucchini coming in by the boat load LOL! Here is a delicious way to prepare them in a different way then you may have done before. This recipe comes from our friends at Rada. If you need a GREAT knife to use for cutting these, look no further than our large selection of Rada knives right here at the store!

Zucchini Chips

Ingredients you will need:

  • 2 large zucchini, sliced into 1/4″ chips

  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Optional seasonings (1/4 teaspoon): choose one of our Troutt Old Time General store seasonings! You can find them instore or on our WEBSHOP under the in-house seasoning category

Preheat oven to 450°. Wash the zucchini and slice up your zucchini into quarter inch slices. Crack two egg whites into one bowl. Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and seasoning in another bowl. Dip the zucchini chips, one by one, first into the egg whites then into the dry mixture. Place your chips on a baking sheet. You might want to place foil or parchment with spray over the top. Bake for 7 minutes. Then turn the chips over and bake for another 7-9 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Serve them while they’re hot!

So delicious!! We can't wait for you to try these!
