Red Rocker Cashew Toffee with White Chocolate for the Holidays

For the Holiday Season we are excited to have added Red Rocker Cashew Brittle with White Chocolate to our gift baskets. Crunchy, roasted cashews are perfectly blended in buttery toffee. Gourmet white chocolate is melted over the top and then generously sprinkled with more delicious cashews. It's no wonder this original recipe is their top seller. ITts soooo good!!

 Red Rocker Candy, LLC started as a desire to make the best toffees and brittles as gifts for friends and family turned into the fulfillment of a life-long dream. This Virginia’s Finest Company is guided by the old-fashioned values of family, quality, goodness and customer enjoyment. Their products bring back the flavors and sentiment of times-gone-by when • it was acceptable to eat a rich treat • it was paramount to use only the finest ingredients • and making something by hand still meant something.

Red Rocker Candy is now based in the small Virginia town of Troy. Each batch of candy is hand-made in their facility using only the finest ingredients: pure butter, the best nuts money can buy, and the best chocolates available on the market. In August, 2015 Red Rocker Candy was in VIRGINIA Living magazine’s August feature about candy making in Virginia. Near the end of the month VDOT posted the Red Rocker Candy logo on highway signs on Interstate 64.

The Ultimate Holiday Ham

I saw this mouthwatering recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, for a Holiday Ham on the Today Show website. It would make our Smithfield Spiral Cut Smoked Ham into the ultimate holiday party dish. The glaze takes only a minute to make and the ham tastes like you worked it for hours. You can serve it with extra mustard and mango chutney.

1 (14- to 16-pound) fully cooked, spiral-cut smoked ham
6 garlic cloves
8 1/2 ounces mango chutney
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
Zest of 1 orange
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the ham in a heavy roasting pan.
Mince the garlic in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the chutney, mustard, brown sugar, orange zest, and orange juice and process until smooth. Pour the glaze over the ham and bake for 1 hour, until the ham is fully heated and the glaze is well browned. Serve hot or at room temperature.
