oatmeal-believer out of me; homemade pop-tarts that are exactly as you'd hope for - crisp and tender buttery crust oozing with house-made strawberry-rose jam, glimmering with a sweet glaze and finished with a spattering of rainbow sprinkles. Heaven, realized. On the preserves side of the business, a piece of the RDP venture you can tell Lauren is most passionate about upon talking to her, continues to awe cliental with it's hyper seasonality and exceptionally unique flavour profiles. The small-batch, hand made jars perched about the store house variates of preserves like cranberry & earl grey soda/cocktail syrup, pickled beets reinvented with the warmth of cardamom, ginger, star-anise and cinnamon and Campfire; an apple butter spiked with Kentucky bourbon and kissed with just enough apple cider vinegar to make it pop, the equivalent of a warm hug on a frigid Canadian winter day, just to name a few. With flavours that marry in ways you wouldn't imagine, Red Door Provisions keeps turning out the goods and impressing it's loyal patrons who tuck the little jars into their bags like found treasures. While the future of Red Door Provisions remains open ended and rapidly changing, you can be sure to always find comfort in a hot (or cold) espresso, something succulent and rich and a jar of sunshine when you walk through their doors.
