Need a quick and easy go-to dish for a holiday party? This casserole is rich, decadent and certainly an indulgence but it’s hard to pass up the combination of sweet corn, smoky bacon and tangy sour cream. While you can use canned corn, fresh, local corn is an even better idea.
Salt, a little spice and lots of crunch make this an irresistible treat. Pair with our Maple Bourbon Splash for a great Happy Hour with friends.

Here’s a lovely compliment to a number of proteins including scallops, chicken, roasted pork and schnitzel. The cider adds the sweetness while the caraway adds the perfect tang to complete this dish. Toss in a bit of brown sugar if your sweet tooth demands.

Ohio’s wine industry was built on sweet wines from varietals like Niagara, Concord and Catawba and although winemakers are introducing more European-style dry wines, Ohioans still love their sweet wines. This sugary little white wine is 100 percent Niagara and labeled and named after Edith, the last of 130 dairy cows to be sold from Maize Valley’s dairy herd. Sips of sweet red wines are wonderful with chocolate desserts.
One of the best ways to showcase the taste of naturally sweet pure butter is in a shortbread cookie. Simple to make, they require only four ingredients and a light touch. Minimal handling of the dough will reward you with a finely pored cookie that has a tender, crumbly texture.
