Austin Honey Company

Mark and Raul of the Austin Honey Company are passionate champions of the honeybee, local food systems, and organic agriculture.  They got their start keeping bees in Chicago before moving down here to Central Texas, where they partnered up with Green Gate Farms to establish their first apiaries.  A little over two years later, their operation now spans seven farms in the immediate Austin area, providing local organic growers the benefits of bee pollination, while producing delicious and nutritious honey along the way.  Their honey is never filtered or heated, which means it’s rich in nutritional and medicinal value.  As if their delicious honey weren’t enough, they also make some amazing beeswax candles, lip balm, and delicious whipped honey.  You know where to find it all!

We hope you were able to enjoy this gorgeous blue-skied long weekend while honoring the legacy of MLK Jr.  We did both by getting our hands dirty in the East Austin soils of the Urban Roots farm for their annual MLK volunteer weekend.  Lead by youth leaders and alongside fellow members of the community, we helped plant over 14,000 onions in their lower field along Boggy Creek (onions we may very well stock come late spring!).  It was an energizing and inspiring morning with an amazing organization doing great work.  They are always looking for volunteers, if you’d like to get in.volved.  

in.house recipe

Maybe you’ve noticed more consistent offerings of in.house salads and soups of late.  We have our new “food prep ninja,” Katy, to thank for that.  Here’s something she’s been making recently that we’ve really enjoyed: an apple pecan cole slaw made with organic JBG cabbage, wild-harvested Texas pecans, and organic granny smith apples.  Try a cup next time you’re in, then take home the in.gredients and make a whole batch for your family or roommates – it’s easy!

Granny Smith Pecan Cole Slaw

in.gredients

Serves 4
  • 1 large head green cabbage, sliced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup rasins
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Pepper to taste

in.structions

Prep: 20 min Total: 30 min
 
Soak the chopped cabbage in a brine (~1 Tbs of salt dissolved in 4 cups of water) for about 15 mins. Drain and set aside.

Add mayonnaise & lemon juice to brined cabbage and mix well making sure all strands are coated.

Add chopped pecans, raisins, chopped apples, onions and toss to serve.

Wine of the Week: Flat Creek 2012 Super Texan 

The 2012 Super Texan opens with notes of bing cherry and blueberry with subtle warm vanilla. This intense, medium bodied wine has a full mid-palate highlighted with flavors of plum, blackberry and toasty oak. The balanced acidity and supple tannins carry these flavors into a long finish with a hint of spice. This wine is perfect to accompany wood-fired pizza, pasta bolognese, or pulled pork. This is their signature wine and exemplifies the best of what it means to be a true Texas Wine.

Describe yourself in 3 words:  Honest, Thoughtful & Somewhat-Funny!

What’s your favorite part about the neighborhood?  It feels like home, there’s nice people. I don’t feel like I have to leave the neighborhood, I can just walk to get food or buy groceries.

How did you hear about in.gredients?  My real estate agent told me about it before it opened. I walked over one day to check it out and I’ve been back everyday since.

Why do you come back?  I like to start my day with something that’s familiar. I come here and I know people, they know me. I get ready for my day and wake up with my dogs.

What are you favorite things about in.gredients?  The people that work here. It’s nice to see happy people who genuinely like to be here. It’s a nice place to hang out, too. Also, I love the Miles of Chocolate, coffee, etc.

If you were to describe in.gredients in one word, what would it be?  Easy

Last but not least, if you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why? An apple, and I don’t really know why…

Let’s be honest, 2015 has gotten off to a shaky start.  The incessant cold and grim headlines have many of us looking for real and metaphoric warmth.  This week we offer a few soup recipes that we hope can bring a little comfort and relief to you and yours.  Sometimes a homemade soup is all you need to turn things around.  Plus, check out this week’s specials for some inspiration to keep up those resolutions!

Hearty Winter Stews

Chorizo & White Bean Stew

Recipe by The Bon Appétit Test Kitchen

Photograph by Brian W Ferry

in.gredients

Servings: 4

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling
1 pound chorizo (now available!)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 sprig thyme
2 15-ounce cans cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
5 ounces baby spinach (about 10 cups)
Smoked paprika (optional)

in.structions

Prep: 45 min Total: 45 min
 
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 15-20 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate.
Reduce heat to medium. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet. Add onion, garlic, and thyme sprig. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5-8 minutes. Add beans and broth and cook, crushing a few beans with the back of a spoon to thicken sauce, until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add spinach by handfuls and cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Slice chorizo and fold into stew; add water to thin, if desired. Divide stew among bowls; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with paprika, if desired.

Vendor Spotlight

Coffee of the Month: New Sweden Coffee Ethiopia Duromina

Monthly profiles of some of our favorite vendors

Bret of New Sweden Coffee Roasters
Talks Ethiopia Duromina, Coffee of the Month

“This coffee from Duromina Cooperative is part of an initiative we have in Ethiopia to work direct at the coop level. We have been involved with Duromina for the past 5 years, selecting our favorite lots to offer on our site. Duromina was formed with the help of a non-government organization that not only coordinated agronomists and managers for each of the coops they work with, but also had a business adviser assigned that helped the cooperative manage their debt, re-invest in quality improvements at the mill, and verifies distribution of income to all members. This is a key position; I have never known a coop to get this kind of expert advice from outside … not in Africa at least. A cooperative can make all kinds of quality improvements, turn out fantastic coffee, and sink deeper in debt all the while. Cooperatives often fail to return a fair and full amount of payment to their farmer-members. Often this is from poor management, and sometimes from graft as well. Duromina has now “graduated” from the NGO program and operates independently with the oversight of various farmer-member leadership groups. The name, chosen by the farmers, has quite a straight-forward meaning: it roughly translates as “Make More Money!” With the solid price we pay the cooperative for their best lots, and their success reinvesting in the Goma area, the name has proved quite appropriate.”

“Wine” of the Week: Texas Keeper 2013 Gold Rush Cider

Texas Keeper says 2013 “created an apple like no other.” Its lemon-lime zing popped when they were tasting the apples as they came through the press and it stayed a zesty lemon-lime grapefruit right through fermentation. They kept the sugar slightly higher to balance out the GoldRush’s natural acidity to create a crisp and refreshing cider.   Enjoy on a sunny TX afternoon!

Coffee of the Month: New Sweden Coffee Ethiopia Duromina

With the new year comes a new roaster for our coffee of the month!  A sweet and fruited cup with peach/nectarine jammy flavors, berry notes, fruit juice acidity, and a raw sugar sweetness layered on a thick mouthfeel.  Excellent as a brewed coffee or single origin espresso.  

Featured Recipe

Sinful Dark Chocolate Brownies

We borrowd this decadent recipe from our friends at Equal Exchange.  Prepare thyselves!

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with oil and lightly dust with flour.

In a saucepan heat the oil and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly until fully melted. Remove from heat. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour batter into pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool before cutting.

Makes 9 brownies.

New Year’s Specials and Recipes

Weekly Updates from in.gredients Neighborhood Grocer

View this email in your browser

We won’t bore you with another best of recap of 2014 but suffice to say we’re grateful for all the good times and good deeds we’ve shared as a community.  Here’s to doing even more good (while having even more fun) in 2015!  

Weekly Specials

Stock up for that New Year’s Eve party or New Year’s Day brunch with local goods and brews!  We’ll give you 10% off any purchase of $25 or more (excluding alcohol) and $2 off any growler fill of one of our superb craft beers.  We’ll raise our glasses to that!

10% Off Any Purchase of $25 or More: Stock up!

$2 off Growler Fills of Beer: $10 for Craft & $13 for Premium

New Years Good Luck

In honor of the new year, we thought we’d highlight a few of the food traditions that might bring you good luck in 2015 because let’s be honest, who couldn’t use a little luck every now and again.  Consider welcoming the new year with one of these foods and see if a little superstition might pay off.  

GREENS

Greens are symbolic of wealth and money so if you’re looking for a financial break this year, chomp on some tasty (hyper-local!) lettuce by Farmer Sue, make a homemade saurkraut with one of three styles of cabbage, or sauté up some kale for a savory snack or side.  
Broccoli Greens: $1.99 per bunch
Buttercrunch Lettuce: $0.50/oz
Savory Cabbage: $2.99/lb
Curly Green Kale: $1.99 per bunch

BEANS
Beans, like greens, can mean money (think coins).  Why not try making the traditional New Years black eyed peas (perhaps with some kale?) and you could be ringing in the new year with health and wealth.
Black Eyed Peas: $2.79
Kidney Beans: $2.19/lb
Pinto Beans: $2.19/lb
Black Beans: $2.42/lb

NOODLES & GRAINS

They say eating a bowl of noodles is good for longevity. The stretched grain is supposed to be representative of the years of your life stretching out ahead of you. So, kick off 2015 in honor of a long and meaningful life, and get that water boiling.
Soba Pasta: $3.74
Organic Spaghetti: $3.49

Whole Wheat Spaghetti:$3.49

FRUIT

In Mexico, one of the traditions is to eat a piece of fruit on each ring of the strike of midnight. Each bell represents one month of the coming year.  Land a sour bite one strike? Watch out for that month of 2015!
Granny Smith Apples: $2.59/lb
Oranges: $1.99/lb
Tangerines: $2.49/lb
Grapefruit: $1.29/lb
Lemon: $1.33/lb

Recipes for New Years

Need some specifics to pull that New Years dish together? Here are two recipes from our friends at Bon Appetit to give you a little direction and inspiration.  

Shoyu Cabbage Soup

in.gredients

Servings: 4
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 carrots, peeled, thinly sliced
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced

4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
2 tablespoons (or more) shoyu (Japanese soy sauce)
2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
2 cups cooked ramen or soba noodles
Hot chili paste (or your favorite Austin hot sauce) and fresh cilantro leaves (for serving)
in.structions
Heat oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrots, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, 10–12 minutes. Add cabbage, broth, shoyu, vinegar, and sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover partially with a lid, and simmer until vegetables are very tender, 15–20 minutes; season to taste with more shoyu if desired. Serve over noodles topped with hot chili paste and cilantro.

Bon Appetit

Collard Green and Radish Slaw with Crispy Shallots

in.gredients

Wine of the Week: McPherson Cellars 2012 La Herencia

La Herencia,” or “the heritage,” is our Spanish-style red wine made to give a tip of the hat to both the Spanish explorers who first crossed the Texas High Plains, and to those who first envisioned a Texas wine industry. This delicious blend is 75% Tempranillo, 9% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre, and 5% Grenache & Carignan, packed full of juicy bramble fruit, tobacco leaf, and spice. The wine fermented in stainless steel and aged fourteen months in new and neutral French oak giving more weight than 2010 but still round tannins and a pleasantly savory finish. Enjoy this wine on its own or with your favorite Texas BBQ.

Coffee of the Month: Fara Coffee Holiday Roast
