Marionberry Jam from Oregon
Marionberries are sometimes referred to as the “king of the blackberries,” but they’re still exclusively grown in Oregon. The 28- to 33-million pounds of marionberries that Oregon produces each year make them the most common blackberry in the state, and they account for more than half of Oregon’s entire blackberry crop. They were created by the USDA ARS at the Oregon State University in the 1950s and are a cross between Olallieberries and Chehalem blackberries which result in their unique, oblong-shaped form. Aside from being the crème de la crème of blackberries, marionberries are also known for being the “cabernet of blackberries” due to their deliciously complex flavor. And what better way to indulge in this tasty, sauvignon treat than by making yourself a marionberry jam sandwich? Additionally, they aren’t all that difficult to prepare—all you need are frozen marionberries coupled with some chia seeds, a spoonful of honey, and freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice. Put together this yummy yet sticky concoction with ease by making use of 3-mil clear vinyl disposable industrial gloves from X3. Not only can they shield your sandwich from unwanted dirt and debris, but they can also keep your fingers clean and stain-free from messy, sticky ingredients.
Boston Cream Pies and Lobster Rolls
Boston is famous for a lot of things, including the Red Sox, Fenway Park, the bar from Cheers, and its annual race marathon to name a few. However, introducing a stranger to the wonderful world of Boston might prove itself a challenge, most especially if they’re clueless as to what to expect from the place. That said, why not have them try out Boston’s food staples to get more comfortable? With food being touted as a universal language, getting on someone’s good side through their stomach is the way to go! Allow them to try the world-famous Boston cream pies—a classic American dessert made with tender vanilla sponge cake, filled with silky vanilla pastry cream, and topped by a glossy chocolate ganache. If they aren’t in the mood for something sweet, why not serve them a plate of Boston’s savory lobster rolls? A lobster roll is a dish native to New England that’s made of lobster meat and served on a grilled hot dog-style bun. The filling may also contain butter, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper, with variants made in some parts of New England that replace butter with mayonnaise. For a seamless dining experience, hand them over a pair of 1st Choice 5-mil black nitrile disposable industrial gloves, so they keep their hands clean while raiding through the lobster meat and its filling.
Fresh Apple Cider from Michigan
Whether choosing to gobble up a marionberry jam sandwich or take on a full-course meal via lobster rolls, a Thanksgiving dinner won’t be complete without a fancy beverage that can help you with digestion. If you were to ask us what we’d recommend, we’d give the traditional apple cider from Michigan a thumbs up for being able to provide its patrons with a sweet, crisp taste that perfectly pairs with the fall season. This popular drink can be served hot or cold, making it a versatile treat to be enjoyed by all. Apple cider is a perishable, non-alcoholic drink made from raw apple juice. It’s a tradition to serve apple cider in the fall season, especially around holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. Fresh-pressed apple cider is usually unfiltered and unpasteurized, but manufactured apple cider sold in groceries is often pasteurized to extend shelf life. There’s no right or wrong way to drink apple cider, and it can be served either hot or cold. If you decide to warm your cider up before serving it, try adding a clove or stick of cinnamon to accentuate its fall flavors—yum! Just don’t forget to practice food safety by making sure you’re equipped with AMMEX Professional 3-mil clear vinyl disposable exam gloves when preparing drinks, so your apple cider stays fresh and dirt-free.
