There’s no place like New Jersey for the holidays. Between the stunning foliage around Thanksgiving and the snow-covered trees at Hanukkah and Christmas, Jersey sets the picture-perfect scene for warm family traditions.

Besides giving us something beautiful to look at, The Garden State also boasts a bounty of autumn produce, such as sweet potatoes, pumpkins, acorn and butternut squash, beets, leeks, kale, carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, apples, cranberries, and Brussels sprouts, to name a few! Don’t forget the other important local goods, such as honey, dairy, meats, and eggs. This recipe guide will help you support your local farmers and serve up the most amazing spread this holiday season.

Drinks & Appetizers

Start the party off right with warm cocktails and small bites made with Jersey Fresh ingredients.
