Despite being a naughty, spoonable, almost fondue-like cheese, Jasper Hill’s Harbison has surprisingly wholesome origins. Originally named for Anne Harbison, a resident of Jasper Hill Farm’s hometown in Vermont and nicknamed the Grandmother of Greensboro, Harbison is a soft-ripened, bloomy-rinded cheese made from the farm’s own pasteurized Ayrshire cows’ milk and wrapped in spruce bark harvested from the local land.
It won Jodi first place in a cooking competition. It’s one of Demetrius’s favorite gifts to receive. It’s a treat that almost every character in the game enjoys (except for a few and we’re not naming names). It’s: ice cream! Who doesn’t love ice cream, really?
This recipe represents a more traditional style of ice cream that requires a machine for proper churning. The eggs aren’t technically necessary, but I prefer the the richness they give the base; I also favor them for this version because it’s a variation on the ice cream recipe I learned in culinary school.
This ice cream method is probably the closest to the game, ingredients-wise. There’s only two elements: heavy whipping cream, which provides the fat which gives the ice cream its traditional smooth mouthfeel, and sweetened condensed milk, which provides the sugar that interrupts the production of ice crystals and makes the ice cream easier to scoop.
This style of ice cream is perfect for folks who can’t consume traditional animal dairy, and since coconuts are available in-game it felt appropriate to use them for a dairy-free ice cream.
We're still in the middle of rhubarb season (at least in New England), so now is the perfect time to use it up while we still can.
Enter this perfect rhubarb pie.
Evelyn always reminds me of spring and summer, when she can be seen tending the flowerbeds all over Pelican Town. A renowned local baker, she gives you her secret recipe for her famous cookies after you reach a 4-heart relationship with her, and it immediately evokes the flavors and feelings of warmer months and old-fashioned tastes.
This is the first recipe Caroline sends you when you reach a high enough relationship with her. She appears to be a big fan of vegetable gardening and champions how wonderful it is to cook with your own home-grown produce. She is, admittedly, not wrong.
Sophelise is a pasteurized milk cheese from Cricket Creek Farm in Massachusetts that comes in roughly 9 ounce wheels—perfect for a small party or an indulgent meal for two (or one, no judgment).
