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.

It’s that time of year in Central Texas when one day you’re out in a t-shirt soaking up the sun (i.e. today) and the next you’re bundled up in everything you own to stay warm and dry (i.e. tomorrow night).  Our thoughts are with our intrepid farmers, who brave this volatility with courage and row cover.  Fingers crossed some of our favorite Texas veggies make it through this next cold snap.  Remember to water and cover your own sensitive outdoor plants (i.e. succulents, young trees, vegetables), and get yourself into the kitchen to stay warm!

CLOSING EARLY THIS WEDNESDAY!

 On Wed, Jan 7th we will be closing at 6pm for our Staff (Post) Holiday Party.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but we have a stellar team of employees to thank for a great year.

“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

Wine of the Week:  Duchman 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.

Coffee of the Month: Little City Coffees! 

We’re very excited to be among the first to carry the reincarnation of the beloved Little City Coffees.  Featured as our Coffee of the Month all November, the Congress Ave Blend is a chocolatey, smooth, and light blend that’ll keep you company any chilly morning.

Weekly profiles of some of our favorite regulars

Avital & Jen

Describe yourself in 3 words:  “She’s my momma”

What’s your favorite part about the neighborhood?  We’re close to everything.

How did you hear about in.gredients?   We watched it being built and wondered what it was going to be for a long time.

Why do you come back?  We come back for lot of reasons: she likes to play here, I get my chocolate fix, we know we can always get really healthy food for the family, and its great for those nights we forgot to plan anything.

What are you favorite things about in.gredients?  Her favorite thing is it has a playground and her favorite blueberry drinks! Its super friendly, we love the dogs and just knowing that there’s good quality stuff. I appreciate the mission and everything y’all have done to create a community gathering space. It’s a great place for the whole family to come and meet our friends, and it’s close to our house, so we can walk.

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

Last but not least, if you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why? I would be an apple because it would be fun.

Wine of the Week:  HaaK 2012 Malbec

This week’s wine comes from Haak Winery, and, like all of our wines, features 100% Texas fruit.  It’s a complete sensory party with an inky, brooding beauty about it and tannins that warm the mouth. Supple but refined, this Malbec does not intrude on the palate. The aroma of sweet violets blends with blackberry, blueberry, plum, and cocoa bean.  Enjoy this aromatic wonder by the glass in.house or take a bottle home (10% OFF!) to sip over a meal.

Robyn

Describe yourself in 3 words:  Sofa, King, Awesome.

What’s your favorite part about the neighborhood?  Not to be cheese, but the community and this store!

How did you hear about in.gredients?  Well, my husband and his brother were shooting the idea around years ago!  It was inspired by a few different spots they’d visited over the years in Chattanooga, San Francisco, and even here in ATX.  It was all about reducing the amount of waste they saw themselves producing at home.  

Why do you come back?  The team teaches me something new every time I walk into the store!

What are you favorite things about in.gredients?  Once again, it’s all about the Team.  Plus, the layout of the store is so simple, I love it.  The level of community and bringing everyone in the neighborhood together is wonderful, too.

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

Last but not least, if you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why? A watermelon (not seedless!) because it’s sweet but the seeds can be annoying (and I know I can be annoying sometimes, too ;)

OUTsider Indiegogo Campaign: Last Chance to Donate!  

OUTsider is a multi-arts queer festival and conference happening right here on Manor Road in February of 2015!  They’re in the final hours of their Indiegogo campaign, so this is your last chance to be one of the original backers of this unique and exciting project.  Great perks, entertaining characters, and the knowledge that you’re supporting something wonderful right here in your own neighborhood!  

Wine of the Week:  McPherson 2012 Sangiovese 

Sangiovese is an Italian cultivar that is well suited for Texas’ unforgiving climate. Working with this varietal for over a decade, McPherson Cellars has developed a consistent style which mimics many of the Sangiovese wines of Tuscany. At the heart of the bouquet is a stunning red licorice and black cherry cola aroma. Aged in French oak marries this varietal character with a delicate oak nuance and adds a beautiful texture. Enjoy by the glass or take a bottle home for 10% OFF.  

Coffee of the (Fair Trade) Month

Equal Exchange Bird of Paradise is a wonderful offering grown by small farmers in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve in Mexico.  Get a great deal on this feel good, taste good bean all month long and show your support for Fair Trade Month.

Weekly profiles of some of our favorite regulars

Alvin

Describe yourself in 3 words:  Loyal, intelligent & adaptable.

What’s your favorite part about the neighborhood?  I like the openness and the candor of this community. There’s respect for each other and a willingness to have a beer or coffee together.

How did you hear about in.gredients?  My friend Rosemary, she invited us to come by.

Why do you come back?  I like the people who work here, I also like the group of friends I have here. It’s comfortable and there’s a sense of belonging. Everyone is so helpful.

What are you favorite things about in.gredients?  First, the staff. Next, the location (even though it’s far from me). The last thing, it’s a nice set up for multiple purposes: studying, hanging out, etc.

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

Last but not least, if you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be? I guess a cherry? Soft on the ouside, but with a pit.
