This Friday is our first Block Party of 2015 and we’ve got quite the event lined up.  Tiny Pies and Wunder-Pilz will both be on site sampling out their superb products, Fifth Dimensions will be in the yard with their mobile book truck, and some of our favorite musicians – Ethan and Jeff, and Brand New Key – will be providing live musical entertainment.  Come enjoy all of this in the company of your favorite neighborhood friends to support the Literacy Coalition, our current community partner.  

Weekly Specials

This week we brought in a new artisanal pasta from the Houston area.  The folks at Tavola Pasta take great pride in their handmade process, which starts with organic semolina flour grown in North Dakota, and natural spring water.  Then they add local produce and extrude through bronze dies (rather than Teflon) before slowly air drying.  The result is a rich and flavorful pasta that will shine on its own or tossed with some Kitchen Pride “Baby Bellas” sautéed in a little bit of butter.  Get great deals on all of the above this week.  Bon appétit! 

Tavola Pasta, 1lb box: $5.89 ea (Save: $1.40 ea)

Tavola Pasta, bulk: $4.69/lb (Save: $1.00/lb)

Kitchen Pride Mushrooms: $2.99/lb (Save $1.00/lb)

This Week’s Produce

All non-local items are Certified Organic.
Local items come from farms with a commitment to sustainable practices.

Valentine’s Preview

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’re making sure you know how to please your locavore lover this year.  Here’s a preview of just a few items we’ll be stocking this week and next.  Don’t forget our Game Night and Single’s Mixer on the 14th, too!

Cashew Milk Recipe

It’s pretty amazing what one cup of cashews can do! We’ve all heard of soy milk and almond milk, but have you ever heard of cashew milk? Here’s a super simple recipe that just might change your perspective on all nut milks.

Use this as a base in Thai food, soups, or even reduced to make a cream sauce.  Or just drink it straight! 

We love this recipe because it’s easy to make, easy to keep, and tastes deliciousWhen we say it’s easy, it’s kind of an understatement. Here’s your list of in.gredients:

1 cup Organic Raw Cashwes
2 oz of simple syrup (1:1 cane sugar & hot water)
3 cups filtered water
 

in.structions

  1. Soak 1 cup of cashews in 3 cups of filtered water for about an hour (20 mins with hot water if you want to speed it up)
  2. Put cashews & water in a blender and blend on high until the chunks of cashews are finely ground (about 5 mins)
  3. Strain the liquid through a nut milk bag, cheese cloth or muslin bag (nut milk bag works best)
  4. Sweeten as desired (or leave unsweet if you want to cook with it)

If you prefer a thinner milk, add a little more water during the blending process. If a heavier milk is desired, reduce the water by about a 1/2 cup.

Wine of the Week: Duchman Winery 2012 Dolcetto

Native to the Piedmont region of Italy, Duchman’s Dolcetto is grown in the deep soil on the Texas High Plains. The Dolcetto grape is thick skinned and naturally tannic. Through very careful handling and neutral oak aging, Duchman Dolcetto is a pure expression of the grape and the vintage. Dark fruit and red plum notes along with well balanced acidity are hallmarks of this wine.

“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.

Giving Thanks

Y’all know what we’re grateful for this season? You guessed it: local food, grown sustainably!  And folks like yourself who choose to shop with us or at farmers markets because you know that good food is worth a little extra.  Why not make your Thanksgiving table as local as possible this year?  In this special edition newsletter, we give you all kinds of reasons to come check out what we have in stock. Offer your guests or hosts something unique this holiday and they’ll surely be grateful. 

Recipes

We’ve all got our favorite Thanksgiving recipes but here are a few to help fill the holes.  And to make these recipes even easier, we’ve created some in.store bundles, including recipe cards and deals.  Come in and see for yourself!

Hearty Autumn Stew (GF/V)

This soup is almost your entire Thanksgiving meal in a bowl.  Packed full of hearty seasonal greens and root vegetables, it’s a great way to please everyone at your table.  Consider serving this as a side at the big meal as a vegan option, or add leftover turkey the next day and enjoy over the weekend. Not quite ready to commit?  Come in and try a bowl – it’s our Soup of the Week!

  • 1 lb red potatoes (diced)

  • 2 cups garbanzo beans, pre-soaked (cover w/ water and let sit overnight)
  • 2 limes

  4. Add pre-soaked garbanzo beans, water/bouillon/broth, and bay leaves.  
  5. Bring pot to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 20 mins, stirring occasionally.
  6. Once potatoes are soft, mix in kale and cook just until soft (retaining it’s bright green color)
  7. Serve with a hearty sourdough or multigrain bread.  

Ginger-Apple Pumpkin Soup by Love and Lemons

When we’re wondering what to cook up for dinner on a given night or how to spice up a weekend potluck, we often turn to one of the many wonderful food bloggers here in Austin.  This recipe comes from the Austin Chronicle’s 2013 Top Food Blogger, Love and Lemons. Get 10% off the bundle if you purchase all the ingredients pictured to the right!    

in.gredients

  • 1 medium pumpkin or butternut squash
  • 1 small apple (or 1/2 a large one)
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper (for roasting)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon additional salt (or to taste)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Roast pumpkin/squash – cut in half and scoop out insides (save and toast seeds!).  Drizzle with olive oil, salt/pepper, and roast cut side up for 20 minutes, flip and roast cut side down for another 20 or so minutes, or until the flesh is soft.  Remove from oven and let cool, then peel the skin away from flesh. 
  3. While the squash roasts, slice the apple and onion into wedges and arrange on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt/pepper, and roast for 20 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.  During hte last 10 minutes or so, add the whole garlic cloves to the baking sheet.  
  4. In a blender, add pumpkin mash, roasted onion, apple, garlic (remove skins), coconut milk, ginger, cardamom, cayenne and salt.  Puree until smooth.  If too thick, add a bit of water or broth to thin and blend again.  
  5. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking!  

Candied Sweet Potatoes (V)

This vegan twist on a Thanksgiving classic is a must for many people, and now that we’ve got vegan marshmallows in stock, you can make sure no one at your table has to miss out.  Add a little bourbon or rum to give some punch to this one!  

in.gredients

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Add sweet potatoes to a 13x9x2 glass baking dish. 
  2. Combine sugar, maple syrup, Earth Balance, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and ginger in a small saucepan and cook gently until all ingredients are combined.  
  3. Pour warm mixture over sweet potatoes and toss to coat evenly.  Cover dish with foil.
  4. Bake sweet potatoes for 50 minutes.  Uncover and bake until potatoes are tender and browned.  
  5. Raise temperature to 500 degrees F and top with marshmallows and pecans.  
  6. Bake for about 3 minutes, or until marshmallows and nuts start to brown.  

We’ve got what you need!

Tips for a Green Thanksgiving  

Have a waste management plan!
If you’re hosting a lot of family or friends and you don’t have enough dish ware, consider using compostable plates (yes, you can get ‘em here) instead of plastic or coated paper.  Of course, this means you’ll need to be composting.  Don’t have space or want to bother? Check out our zero waste friends, the Compost Pedallers for help.  
Grow Your Own Food
Okay, maybe it’s a little late to start growing your own food for this Thanksgiving, but consider starting a garden this season and perhaps by next Thanksgiving you’ll be harvesting your own herbs, greens, and root vegetables for the big meal. Need help? Ask YardFarm – they’re experts!
Buy Direct from Farmers
Seek out your nearest farmers market to get produce, meats, and cheese directly from the producers.  Not sure where to go? Try SFCTexas Farmers Markets, or HOPE Farmers Market.  Be sure to tell them we say hello!

 

REMINDER

We’ll be closed Thursday AND Friday of next week!

In addition to a few choice items on sale through Wednesday, we’ve also got some special deals on wine, cheese plates, recipe bundles, and a delicious new Texas product made with vinegar, drinking shrubs!

We hope you’ve been out in the garden or on your bike for this incredible Fall weather we’ve been having (when you’re not here with us at in.gredients, that is).  What a joy it’s been.  Here’s to a lovely season of cool-weather crops, backyard BBQs, and long-sleeve shirts!  

Weekly Specials

Wine of the Week:  Argus Cidery Malus Cuvee

The Malus Cuvee is a blend of apples from both the 2011/2012 harvest. Aged on New American Oak, the Malus is a fruit forward apple table wine inspired by some of Argus’ favorite new world whites and German Apfelweins. Argus has growers Baxter, Cal and Dan to thank for the perfect apple blend that went into this first still wine release.  A real treat for the fall and it’s on sale all week!

Kale is Back!  

Thanks to the folks at Johnson’s Backyard Garden, we’ve got some beautiful Green Curly and Red Russian kale, the first of the (now-it-finally-feels-like) Fall season!  We know how much you love this stuff, and how much we’ve all missed it over the long, hot Texas summer.  Time to settle in for a nice long stretch of incredible cool-weather greens like kale from JBG and other farms (including our own soon!).  Can we get a “Kale Yeah”?!

Featured Recipe: Homemade Sweet Potato Chips

These are so easy to make, you’ll never need (or want) to buy chips from us again!  All you need is a shallow pan (7″ or 9″ cast iron works great) with about a half inch of organic coconut oil in it, and a bunch of thinly sliced (as thin as you can get ‘em!) sweet potatoes.  Heat the oil ’til 

it starts to crackle and carefully/gently add the slices of sweet potatoes.  Cook them until they turn a light brown and become firm and crispy (1-2 mins).  Remove to a paper towel-lined plate or pan to drain excess oil and cool.  Best enjoyed while still warm, though, so eat ‘em soon!

As everyone makes their way back to the classroom, we thought we’d give you some great deals to help you start the semester off right.  Check out the plethora of sale items this week, including some stellar bombers from Rogness Brewing Company, our Pflugerville neighbors.  Their Joie d’Ete, a saison brewed with lavender and vanilla, has been one of our favorite summer beers this year.  Welcome back, college students!  Good luck with the new school year, little ones

It’s time to select our next Community Partner!  

We can’t believe it’s almost been six months since we first teamed up with the Kealing Middle School PTA as our non-profit partner.  Alas, it’s time to select our next non-profit partner.  Do you or someone you know belong to or support a great 501c3 organization in town that you’d like to nominate?  Have them fill out our application before September 5th and we’ll be in touch!

Wine of the Week: HAAK 2013 Dry-Blanc Du Bois

Haak Vineyards and Winery out of Santa Fe, TX uses 100% Texas grapes for this delicate, dry white.  Light and elegant with a clean and crisp finish, it has shades of white linden blossom, peach, pear, and lemongrass.  Pairs well with fish, poultry, cheese, and creamy pasta dishes.  Grab a whole bottle (on sale all week!) or enjoy a glass up front and see what you think.  

Summer Recipe: The Easiest Okra Recipe Ever

This time of year in this part of the country, there’s one thing you can count on finding in abundance: okra.  Not too many other crops are so well suited to the dog days of summer.  Our okra comes to us fresh daily from Sue’s Garden, a backyard master gardener just down Walnut St. (literally 200 yards from our store!). She’s been growing vegetables there for over 20 years

 and boy does she know what she’s doing.  Her okra, for example, is tender no matter the size (unlike most okra, which gets “woody” when it grows beyond a few inches in length). Here’s a super easy way to serve up this quintessentially southern vegetable
 

The World’s Easiest Okra Recipe

Grill, broil, or pan toast (in a heavy cast iron skillet) whole okra pods until they turn a nice golden brown.  No oil/butter or salt/pepper necessary!  Try ‘em in the toaster oven for breakfast (!) or throw a bunch on the grill as a side for family dinner.  These will pleasantly surprise the whole family (and please the family doctor!).

Wine of the Week: Vermentino by Duchman Family Winery

Our new product spotlight, Wine of the Week, kicks off today with Vermentino, a light and aromatic white from Duchman Family Winery. It will be available by the glass all week, so give it a try before taking a bottle (on sale!) home.  Duchman Family Winery uses 100% Texas grapes, a commitment to local production that we (and you) can feel good about.  

New Product: Cricket Energy Bars!

Hopper Foods is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for larger scale production.  Donate here and get some great perks!  In the meantime, you can find their bars available exclusively at in.gredients.  These are delicious and nutritious with the added benefit of highly sustainable cricket protein.  Available in three flavors, it’s easier than ever to eat bugs.  

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.
