Meet Bonnie Henshaw of Prairieview!
Bonnie Henshaw's farm, Prairieview, is a must-visit booth at the Lincoln-area farmers' markets. At the stand you'll not only find vegetables, but a n overflowing assortment of jams and jellies. Bonnie grows most of the fruit used in her jams and jellies including elderberries, wild plums, currants, gooseberries, mullberries, peaches, apples, pears, apricots, chokecherries, and rhubarb.
Never tried chokecherry jam? You're missing out! Jams and jellies are a great way to preserve the seasonal fruits of Nebraska that can be quite abundant in the peak of the season. Bonnie's favorite flavor is peach ginger marmalade, made in July and August at the peak of peach harvest. Using seasonal fruit in her jams and jellies ensures the best flavor.
