Local five-year-old offers lemonade stand to raise money for childhood cancer this Saturday

Five-year-old Morrisville resident Jeremiah Rutkowski was in the grocery store recently when he saw a little girl with no hair. Wondering why she decided to be hairless, he asked his mother, Brandy Rutkowski, about it. Brandy explained that the girl probably had cancer and that the medicine she has to take for the cancer makes her body weak and her hair fall out. When Jeremiah heard this, he wanted to help. The Rutkowskis decided to open a lemonade stand at their house on Route 20 in Morrisville this Saturday, Aug 16, in hopes that people who go to the Madison Bouckville Antique Show will stop by for a cup of lemonade and a snack of zucchini bread and/or lemon cupcake, and help Jeremiah in his quest to raise $300 for childhood cancer research.

Local ingredients, old world flavors: Tartine Bake Shop selling out at Cazenovia Farmers Market

She listens to opera at full volume when she cooks with chocolate, country music when she bakes pies and Adam Levine, the lead singer of pop-rock band Maroon 5, when she has a big order. Regardless of the music or what she’s baking, however, Sherri Miller always bakes barefoot at her 1830s cottage in the village. Although Miller is accustomed to baking pies, cakes and dinners through her two Cazenovia businesses, Profiteroles and Bon Appetite Kitchens, she has now started baking shortbread for her third and newest Cazenovia business — the Tartine Bake Shop.

New Canastota brewery mixes local ingredients with local history

Erie Canal Brewing Company is the only local brewery to use 100 percent Madison County ingredients

In the 19th century, hops were the staple crop of Central New York; and Madison County was actually known as the “Hops Capital of the United States.” Prohibition, plus a killer hops fungus, decimated the county’s agricultural pride — but in recent years beer-making has made a comeback in CNY in general, and in Madison County in particular. Under state law, for a brewery to be deemed made in New York 20 percent of the hops and 20 percent of all other ingredients must be grown or produced within the state. There is a new brewery in Canastota, however, that not only gets most of its ingredients from a farm in Chittenango, but is the only brewery around that boasts a beer made from ingredients 100 percent grown in Madison County — Erie Canal Brewing Company.

Correction -- Taste of Cazenovia is scheduled for September, not June

CORRECTION -- In the Datebook section of the June 4 issue of the Cazenovia Republican, we erroneously stated that the 2014 Taste of Cazenovia was scheduled to be held Thursday, June 12, at Owera Vineyards. The event is actually scheduled to be held in early September. More details on the event will be forthcoming as the date draws closer.

Let them eat bread

Rise bread makers a hit in Cazenovia

Jasmeen Barnes, owner of Rise bread makers, simply cannot keep her bread in stock at the weekly Cazenovia Farmers Market. There have been two markets so far this season, and the shelves of Rise bread were bare within an hour at both. “That’s a pretty cool feeling,” said Barnes — especially since her business idea sprouted last fall, recipes were perfected during the winter, her baking facility was only finalized a few weeks ago and the May 10 farmers market was her first commercial outing.
