We love to support CapeAbilities on Cape Cod and feel fortunate to have their wonderful farm close by in Dennis. They always have great seasonal produce, Christmas trees, apple cider and flowers. The farm includes wonderful hot houses, so they are always a few months ahead of our own gardens, and we love to support this wonderful organization for their delicious tomatoes, flowers for the inn and wonderful herbs.
Cape Abilities is a nonprofit organization that provides jobs, homes, transportation and other services for people with disabilities on Cape Cod. They also operate several entrepreneurial businesses that provide jobs for people with disabilities. They recently acquired Cape Cod Saltworks Sea Salt through a generous donation from Janice Burling and Penny Burling, the founders of Cape Cod Saltworks. We purchased their wonderful sea salt and sold out of the product in our gift shop last year. I was tickled to learn that this wonderful product will continue with a wonderful new tradition of helping people on Cape Cod with disabilities.
Cape Cod salt production has a history here in Brewster as the Brewster flats produced some of the first salt for colonial life when the sole means of preserving food was salt.
Cape Cod Saltworks Sea salt proudly produces a pure sea salt, harvested from the waters of Cape Cod in a way that recaptures tradition and delights ones taste buds. The unique flavor echoes the briny tang of summer’s day at the beach…..what could be more special then that! There is no processing, no additives and no anti-caking agents- just salt!
They have also added a new item from the saltworks which is an Herb d’Province of sorts- they call it Sea Salts mixed with Herbs of Cape Cod. Can’t wait to try it with some of our new breakfast recipes.
We will be carrying both of these products in our gift shops at the Captain Freeman Inn and Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa. I am sure we will be using it in many of our meals as well.
