The Goods: Local Bites We’re Digging Right Now
Bantam Wunderkind Modern American Cider
Light, pleasantly sweet, and effervescent, this Cambridge producer’s cider—crafted with local apples and a touch of honey—will be the perfect complement to our holiday turkey.

J.P. Jarring Co. Jams
The chefs at the J.P. supper club Whisk are now whipping up batches of their own local fruit butters and preserves—think gooseberry, black Mission fig, and blueberry—that’ll give new life to your cheese board or morning slice of toast.
$8.50–$10.50, available at whiskboston.com or at Yaniel Supermarket, 71 Day St., Jamaica Plain.
Fuel America Whoopie Pies
This new Brighton coffee shop offers excellent egg sandwiches and quirky sodas (and java, of course), but we can’t get enough of its homemade whoopie pies, particularly the vanilla one filled with tangy lemon cream cheese.
