Calling All Volunteers!

We’re looking for some friendly neighborhood cats (no, not you Cash!) to help us run a few activities during our big block party-style 2nd Anniversary Party on Sunday, August 3rd.  If you or someone you know might be down to help out, check out the details here.

Summer Drink Specials

Summer Recipe: Cold Brew Coffee at Home

Cold brew coffee made at home is easy, rewarding, and more affordable than alternatives.  Plus, it’s less acidic, versatile, and lasts in your fridge for up to two weeks.  The concentrate can also be used in baking, syrups/sauces, or in milkshakes (yum!). 

Here’s how to do it….. 

1. Coarsely grind 3 cups (or just over 1/2 a pound) of Fara Espresso beans.  
2. Fill your CoffeeSock with the grinds and moisten them for a ‘bloom.’ 
3. Secure the neck of the sock with the string and insert into 64oz Mason Jar.  
4. Fill the jar with cold, filtered water and let steep for 12-18 hours.
5. Remove sock (let drain at lip of jar) and voila, you’ve got a delicious cold brew concentrate.  
6. Mix (about 1:3) with water, milk, or milk alternatives to your desired strength.  
7. Store covered in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Summer Drink Specials

#WunderMondays mean $1 OFF pints of Wunder-Pilz Kombucha! Recharge and get ready for a productive week with a lovingly-made, small batch kombucha that uses fair trade organic teas and herbs, pure cane sugar and chlorine-free, chloramine-free and fluoride-free water for a crisp, dry and not-too-sweet probiotic beverage.  We offer on rotation all four medicinally inspired varieties – Heart, Strength, Energy, and Calm – each with a unique and healthy blend of tea and herbs to get you ready for the week. 

Tuesdays just got a lot better with $1 off pints of Third Coast’s “¡Frios Mio!” Cold Brew CoffeeMade with a carefully crafted blend of their Nicaraguan and Mexican medium roasts then lightly sweetened with pure cane sugar, this is the best way to cool off and kick start all at once. We’re one of the only places in Austin where you can find this gem on tap.   Prefer to mix your own or enjoy your cold brew straight? We now offer their ¡Frios Mio! concentrate (unsweetened) in bottles, too.

The Austin Chronicle: Coverage and Copies

Did you catch the recent article in the Chronicle about “Mixin’ It Up at in.gredients“? Have a look!  Speaking of the Austin Chronicle, you can now grab your weekly copy from us!  

Coffee of the Month – Redbud Roasters

We were so enamored with May’s coffee of the month from the folks at Redbud Roasters that we’re featuring one from them again.  This month, find their Nicaraguan espresso roast in.house!  

Featured Recipe: The Perfect Peanut Sauce

These summer spring rolls are pretty much perfect for this time of year.  Why? Because there’s so much delicious local produce coming in from our farmers to stuff inside those rice wraps (now available here!).  This recipe comes from our former Marketing Manager and Blogger, Chelsea.  Enjoy!

Adapted from Oms and Honey
 

½ can of full-fat, unsweetened coconut milk
1/8 cup Thai red chili paste (or try blending up kimchi w/ the cider vinegar)
½ cup natural creamy peanut butter
¼ tbsp salt
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
¼ cup water
Dash of red pepper flakes
 

All you have to do is put everything into a pot and bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Let the mixture simmer, and make sure it doesn’t get burnt, as that’ll do some weird things to the coconut milk. No one wants curdled coconut milk. Let it cool and then eat to your hearts desire. I mixed in some red pepper flakes, because I love some extra spice.

Try it with some tofu fresh rolls, which is another go-to recipe. This version included green onion, avocado, tofu, red bell pepper, cucumber, grated carrots and thai basil. Yep, it was delicious.

Fun fact about fresh rolls; when you are preparing your rice paper, dip the paper in nearly boiling water. There’s no need to let it soak, just a dip in hot water will get them to the perfect texture. Learned that trick in Texas, of all places.

This really is the perfect summer meal.

Featured New Products

This week we asked a few more of our top notch Team Members to pick their favorite new products.  Here’s what they had to say:

Russell’s Pick: Fresh Pressed Juice 

“Watermelon, jalapeno, lime, and sea salt. This stuff kicks ass- even more so in a mixed drink. If you know what I mean.”  If you don’t know what Russell means, grab a bottle and see for yourself.  Need another reason to love Fresh Pressed Juice?  They give all of their juice pulp to Boggy Creek Farm here in East Austin to make rich compost for their fields.  

Ben’s Pick: Celtic Seafare Salmon

“I like all of their products.  So much.  I sometimes stay home on a Saturday night nomming on this cold-smoked salmon and drinking iced tea.  I am not ashamed to admit it – this stuff is that good.”  No judgments, Ben.  No judgments.  We know it’s the good stuff.  Try it on a Rockstar bagel with Full Quiver Neufchatel spread for the ultimate breakfast (or Saturday night) experience.  

Events

We’ll be screening all the World Cup games under the pergola these next weeks! Plus, we’ll have food and drink specials during the USA matches.

World Cup Soccer: USA vs. Portugal

Sunday, June 22nd, 5pm

We’ll be screening pretty much all of the World Cup under our pergola these next weeks, but when the US plays, we like to make an event of it.  So, this Sunday when they take on Portugal we’ll be offering happy hour drinks and food specials, including our $6 pizza/pint and $9 panini/pint specials.  Go USA!

Did you miss our pint night with Circle Brewing Co. last week?  Don’t worry, we’ve got another planned this week (tonight, in fact!) with another favorite brewery of ours, Austin Beerworks.  Catch the details below.  Friday we continue our porch residency with Brand New Key, who’ve been playing live tunes every Friday in May.  With a different musical guest each week it’s been a great mix of music so far, perfect for relaxing into the weekend.  If you haven’t yet made it out, you’ve got two more chances.  And keep riding that bike of yours for Bike Month – we just might run some pop-up deals for all those helmet-wearing cyclists out there.

New! Summer Drink Specials

With the weekend behind you and a full week ahead, why not grab a delicious and restorative Wunder-Pilz Kombucha to #recharge and get you ready for a productive week?  These lovingly-made, small batch kombuchas use fair trade organic teas and herbs, pure cane sugar and chlorine-free, chloramine-free and flouride-free water for a crisp, dry and not too sweet probiotic beverage.  We offer on rotation all four medicinally inspired varieties – Heart, Strength, Energy, and Calm – each with a unique and healthy blend of tea and herbs to get you recharged and ready for the week. 

If you’ve tried Third Coast Coffee’s “Frios Mio” cold brew coffee, you’ll know why Tuesdays just got a lot better.  If you haven’t yet had a taste, come by and ask for a sample!  Made with a carefully crafted blend of their Nicaragua and Mexican medium roasts then lightly sweetened with pure cane sugar, this is the best way to cool off and kick start all at once. We’re one of the only places in Austin where you can find this gem on tap.   Prefer to mix your own or enjoy your cold brew straight? We now offer their Frios Mio Concentrate (unsweetened) in bottles, too.

Coffee of the Month – Redbud Roasters

We like to feature a good cup of coffee when we find one, especially when it’s coming from just down the road in San Marcos.  The folks at Redbud know how to source a good bean.  We think you’ll like their medium roast Panama, featured all month.  Come try some!

Featured Recipe

Crisp + Crunchy Potato Salad
Last week’s Culinary Workshop featured the first harvest of Green Gate Farms potatoes in this wonderful twist on an American classic. With more Texas potatoes on their way, this is a great dish to try for your next family dinner or potluck BBQ – all will be impressed!

From Andi Jo of Traveling Recipes

Potato Salad Ingredients: diced new potatoes, 1 1/2 cup chopped pickles, finely diced French Breakfast radish, 6 shredded chard leaves, chopped olives, 1 cup cilantro chopped (save 10 sprigs for presentation), diced red bunch onions and spring onions, 2 tsp caraway seeds, juice from 2 lemons, 1 1/2 cup crushed walnuts (place in towel securely and BEAT with spoon!), cracked pepper to taste and ½ cup whole grain mustard, crushed red pepper to taste, salt to taste

Ingredients for cashew cream: 3/4 cup cashew, 3/4 cup water, 1 tsp lemon juice, ½ tsp apple cider vinegar, white pepper

Making the salad: Prep all veggies. Prepare the cashew cream by adding all ingredients to a blender and blending until smooth. Set aside. Dice the potatoes into 1 inch cubes. (Slice potato in half, lay on flat side and cut again. Repeat until you have 1 inch cubes.) Fill pot 1/2 way full with hot water (or until covers 2 inches above potatoes) and place on burner; begin boil.  Boil in water for 8-12 minutes; water should be 2 inches above potatoes. After 10 minutes, check a potato — texture should be firm but cooked. While water is boiling, saute spring onions in pan, no water…when they begin begin to brown, add a splash of water and repeat this process for 5 minutes. Then, prep all salad ingredients and place in large bowl (except lemon, cilantro, chard and mustard). In small bowl, whisk cashew cream, lemon, cilantro and mustard until smooth. Drain potatoes with colander over a sink and place in big bowl. Toss with other ingredients, creamy dressing & cracked pepper. Lastly, toss with chard.

Presentation: Place salad in presentation bowl. Crack pepper on top. Make artful presentation!

Recipe: Garden Bibimbop 
This bibimbop recipe was probably our favorite from Sunday’s Culinary Workshop. The “Go Chu Jang,” or pecan paste, has a superb flavor.  Many thanks to Andi Jo of Traveling Recipes for another wonderful evening.  

From Traveling Recipes

Ingredients for Bibimbop: 2 cups cooked brown rice, 4 cups water, 4-5 carrots-julienned, 1 cup Kimchi-chopped,  2 cucumbers-julienned, 1 purple cabbage-shredded, spring onion-finely chopped, cilantro to taste, mushrooms-sliced, zucchini & squash–julienned, Go Chu Jang

Ingredients for Go Chu Jang (Pecan paste): 2.5 cups chopped pecans, 1.5 cup hydrated sundried tomatoes, 1/2 cup water, 2 tbs Korean red pepper, 1 tsp minced ginger, 2 tbs chipotle powder, 3 tbs apple cider vinegar, 1 garlic clove, 1/4 white onion, 4 dates-pitted, 1 red bell pepper optional, 2 tbs kimchi

Procedure for rice: Rinse rice thoroughly, add rice to pot on stove top and add 4 cups water, bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook covered for 40-45 minutes. Remove from heat. Let sit until serving.

Procedure for Go Chu Jang: Pitt dates. Combine all ingredients in bowl and toss so the flavors carry.Then, place ½ or ⅓ batch into vitamix and blend until fully mixed…you might need to blend in stages using a spatula when the machine is OFF to force the mixture back down into the blade.

Procedure for bibimbop: Prep all ingredients. Saute the mushrooms in a pan on medium heat with 2 tbs of water and the lid on for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside until ready to make.

Presentation: Make an example bowl. If time, make as many bowls as time allows before dinner. Place compacted 3oz scoop of rice into center of each bowl and arrange each ingredient around the rice. Place 2 tbs of the Go Chu Jang next to the rice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Stir and dig in.

Pioneering the Possible

with one comment

Our ambitious ethos has garnered quite a bit of attention since our IndieGoGo campaign launched us into the public spotlight just about three years ago.  People from across the globe applauded our efforts to reduce food-related waste in the grocery industry by pioneering a “package free” model.  It’s been almost two years of holding close to our original, idealistic vision of a different kind of grocery store, and though the response from the community – near and far – has remained positive and supportive, the numbers from our first 21 months of business paint a different picture than we had hoped.

Rather than give up and lament the impossibility of a perfect package free grocery model, we are narrowing our focus to three things we know we do well: zero wastelocal food, and community.  As a result, we hope to remain a part of the sustainable food movement, a part of this vibrant and growing city, and a part of this dynamic, diverse community on Manor Road.  We plan to bend so as not to break, pivot to not fall, and innovate towards what’s pioneering but not impossible.

In practice, this shift means discontinuing a portion of our bulk section to make room for some new offerings.  Our updated guiding principles look like this:

Zero waste: We average less landfill waste per month than an American averages per day! 

Local food: As a hub for quality local products, we champion small farms and producers and promote local, seasonal eating.  Some might say we have farmers market offerings with grocery store hours.

Community: Community gatherings – formal and informal, educational and social – are a regular happening around here.  Plus, we love to partner with and support like-minded businesses and organizations that are also committed to a greener, more just world.

Still have some questions? Check out our updated FAQ page.  We hope you’ll rally behind us as we make these changes and help us stick around for the duration.

Humbly,

The in.gredients Team
