Food and wine are perennial holiday gifts. At Edible, obviously, we like to keep it local. Some are old favorites and others are newcomers to our food and wine scene. For the next few days check out the gift items that were highlighted in our Winter 2012 issue. Happy Holidays.
RUBS AND FUDGE. Condiments for Xmas. Local producers are selling stuff that makes the stuff they already sell taste better. For preparing pastured poultry, Browder’s Birds sells two dry rubs in 5-ounce jars for $10: Grill, for a barbecue flavor, and Roast, a mix of dry herbs; call 631.599.3394 or visit browdersbirds.com to order. Vine Street Café is now selling their barbecue sauce, cookies and hot fudge. Buy their Blue Canoe products at the restaurant on Shelter Island, or through their Web site, bluecanoesi.com.
