Liehs & Steigerwald has been handcrafting sausages and meats in Syracuse since 1936, when its German-immigrant founders first began sharing their traditional recipes and culinary methods. Current owner Chuck Madonna, who began working at the shop at age 15, and co-owner Jeff Steigerwald now run an expanded operation that keeps butchery simple. Butchers custom-cut top-grade meats on request, grind chuck fresh several times a day, and craft sausages of all sorts, from traditional kielbasa to specialty cheddar and chicken-wing bratwurst.

Savory sausages reside in all-natural casings, free of additives and fillers, and acquire a smoky flavor and a husky timbre in an old-fashioned smokehouse. At-home delivery service ferries the shop’s meats directly to customers’ abodes, though some specialties, such as corned beef, take a little extra time to prepare. Profiled by the Post-Standard, the Irish-American staple takes three weeks to perfect, and Liehs & Steigerwald’s butchers carefully marinate the corned beef in brine, spices, and fresh four-leaf clovers, creating succulent slices that require no extra seasoning before cooking.

On Fridays, the familiar aroma of frying fish wafts out of Westvale Fish Cove, luring in as many diners as it did when the restaurant opened its doors in 1948. But chefs keep the deep fryer sizzling throughout the rest of the week too, as they dip shrimp, calamari, and fish into its golden bubbles, yielding bronzed crusts and resonant crunches. In addition to their made-to-order meals, chefs can also wrap up raw seafood for customers to fry at home or to use as a subtle warning in front of complacent pet goldfish.

Since 1907, the same family has farmed the land around The Apple Shed, growing peaches, apples, tomatoes, and other fruits and vegetables. In 1973, third-generation owners Gary and Barb Wells opened a fruit stand to sell these crops along with sandwiches, seasonal salads, and cider that is pressed onsite. The Apple Shed is popular with children as well as foodies, thanks to a playground, farm animals, and other family attractions.

Each fall, Apple Ridge Orchards opens its gates and welcomes the public to traverse a farm filled with tree-ripened fruit and old-fashioned amusements. In the orchard, visitors pluck from 15 types of apple trees. Tractors pull families and groups on hayrides, traveling to the pumpkin patch where they can pick a gourd worthy of a homemade pie or a carving of Susan Sarandon's face. For fuzzier amusement, kids can pet Apple Ridge’s family of friendly farm animals, or observe honeybees in a glass observation hive.
