Weekly Updates from in.gredients Neighborhood Grocer

We’ve got a great weekend of events coming up.  See below for details on our Spring Festival on Easter Sunday (meet the “Debonaire Hare”!), and the much-anticipated return of Adriene Mishler teaching yoga on our lawn (as part of the Fusebox Festival).  Also on the horizon are two wonderful food events: Cooking Up Cultures on Sunday the 27th and our ever-so-popular Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop now scheduled for May 4th.  Sign up today – spots go quickly!

Weekly Specials

You probably know by now that we’re huge proponents of eating locally and seasonally.  This isn’t always a simple or easy task, but it all starts with awareness.  Maple syrup, for example, is only produced in Northern regions where the Sugar Maple tree thrives and the climate is just right for sap flows.  So while we can’t make our own maple 

syrup here in Texas, we can still appreciate and celebrate “sugaring” season.  It’s hard for us Texans to imagine, but up North the sap is a-flowing and the syrup is a-boiling.  To honor the season of the sap flow, we’re putting our delicious and small-batch maple syrup from the Maple Valley Cooperative on sale.  Plus, we’ve shared one of our favorite cornbread recipes (“Maple Cornbread” from the Vermont Maple Syrup Cookbook – see below), and put most of the other ingredients needed to make this delicious gem on sale, too!

Just mush a slice into a cup of milk and heat  slowly in a saucepan.

  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 F 
  • Combine dry ingredients, make a well in the center, and add the wet ingredients
  • Mix just enough to combine
  • Pour into greased 9″ baking dish
  • Bake at 400 F for ~20 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean
  • Serve warm with butter and more maple syrup! 

Next-Day Maple Cornbread Porridge

  • Mash a generous piece of cornbread into a saucepan of milk.  Stir to combine and heat slowly.  Add milk to desired consistency.  
  • Heat and stir until a smooth and thick porridge forms.  
  • Serve with maple syrup!

We love giving back to our community.  That’s why as of today, April 1st, our new community partner Kealing Middle School PTA will get 5 cents every time you reuse a container at our store (BYOC).  Over the past year and a half, our collective efforts have allowed us to donate thousands to local non-profits.

But we’re just getting started…

This cycle we’re introducing “First Fridays.” When you shop at in.gredients on the first Friday of every month, we’ll donate 1% of our sales directly to our non-profit partner. Not bad, ay?

Come visit the store this Friday, April 4th and stock up on some good karma!

Weekly Specials

This week we’re putting a few of our newest bulk items on sale, plus all of our sprouting seeds.  Never sprouted before?  It’s easy!  Just add a tablespoon of seeds to a quart-size mason jar (or try a muslin bag or sprouting tray), soak them in water overnight, and then rinse and drain several times a day until they sprout.  It’s a great way to grow your own nutritious greens right in your own kitchen.  Give it a try.

For those Epoch Coffee fans out there (the birthplace of this Austin-original gem), id Soda’s brilliant flavors and clever names should be pleasantly familiar.  For everyone else, these small-batch, handcrafted sodas are game-changing.  We always have one of their Freudian-inspired flavors on tap, like the Melancholy Cream – cardamom blueberry – or Narcitric – salted grapefruit.  Try the Narcitric mixed with Lone Star for a delicious cocktail known as the Beer Hound ’round these parts.

Announcing Our New Community Partner!

We’re pleased to announce that our new community non-profit partner, as of April 1st, is the Kealing Middle School PTA!  Congrats, y’all – we look forward to supporting and working with you over the next 6 months!  

Weekly Specials

With Spring officially upon us, we’re celebrating one of our favorite Texas seasons with two of our favorite Texas hobbies: drinking delicious craft beer and growing food out in the garden (they pair nicely, too).  

All this week we’ll take $2 off growler fills of beer, which means just 10 bucks for most of what you’ll find on our rotating taps (including Independence Brewing’s Stash, Live Oak’s Hefeweizen, and Austin Beerworks’ Pearl-Snap, to name a few).  That’s a pretty good deal for 64oz of fresh, local brews to go.  

Plus, we’re taking $2 off Joe’s Organic’s “Green Pastures” compost!  Kick start your spring garden with some rich and beautiful organic compost made right here in Austin.

The West China Tea Company, lead by the passionate and knowledgeable “tea ninja” So-Han Fan, recently brought us these adorable “bird’s nests” of pu-er, a biologically-active aged tea from Yunnan in Southwestern China.  If you haven’t yet discovered the joy and benefits of drinking pu-er, keep your eyes out for his delightful and enlightening tea tastings in the coming months.

Help Us Select Our New Community Partner!

leave a comment »

Did you know that every time you bring your reusable container to shop with us, we donate 5 cents to our non-profit community partner?

For the past six months we have partnered with SafePlace, a non-profit organization whose mission is to end sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention, and social change. Our collective efforts have thus far raised over $300 to help this life-changing organization.

This week (March 17th-24th) we’re asking our customers and online community to help us decide our next non-profit partner.  Starting April 1st, in.gredients will donate 5 cents per “BYOC” to the chosen non-profit partner.

Please take the time to read about these four amazing local non-profit organizations. Then, take the poll to help us decide who we’ll partner with next.  Thank you!

Attendance Records is dedicated to bringing creativity back into schools by connecting teachers and students with local writers, artists, and musicians. By providing students with the opportunity to design, write, and produce their own album, students will build confidence in the skills that will result in discovering what makes them unique.

EcoRise Youth Innovations inspires a new generation of leaders to design a sustainable future for all. Our school-based program empowers youth to tackle real-world challenges in their schools and communities by teaching environmental literacy, social innovation, and hands-on design skills.

Providing emotional, physical, and informational support to empower women through their birth experience, GALS (Giving Austin Labor Support) has two main programs: 1) An on-call dispatch service that provides labor companions to any mother who is under-supported during her labor and birth, and 2) A partnership with Any Baby Can to serve low-income first-time moms through prenatal support, labor and birth support, and postpartum contact. 2014 will mark new partnerships with the Travis County Correctional Facility and the Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Alliance of Texas.

Kealing PTA works with schools and community to provide a quality education for all children and youth and shall seek to participate in the decision-making process establishing school policy. Kealing PTA shall work to promote the health and welfare of children and youth and shall seek to promote collaboration among parents, schools, and the community at-large.

We’re getting pretty excited for our line up of in.sessions out on the porch next week and hope you are, too.  See below for more details on what’s shaping up to be a great few days.  In the meantime, come by and take advantage of our weekly deals, including the much-anticipated return of Pure Luck Farm & Dairy fresh chevre.  Thank goodness those goats have finished “kidding” their young! 

Seasonal Hours
Beginning 3/6, we’ll be open until 11pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Weekly Specials:

Morehart Farm is owned and operated by two Cherrywood residents. Their heritage “New Hampshire” hens are laying beautiful (and plentiful!) eggs after a slower winter season.  Come in and grab a dozen – on sale this week for $4.99 – and taste the difference of happy, heritage hens.

Pure Luck Farm and Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas makes some of the most luxurious goat-milk cheeses around.  The only reason not to fall in love with their cheeses is the inevitability of having to go without it for a few months while the goats nurse their young (aka “kidding”). To celebrate its return, we’re putting their fresh chevre on sale at $9.49/half pound (save $3/lb).  

JBG Organic Beets - $2.49/bunch

One crop that doesn’t mind these cold nights is one of our favorites: beets!  We’ll be saying goodbye to this winter crop before long, so this week we’re offering them up on sale.  Want a really delicious side dish?  Roast ‘em, peel ‘em, and toss them with the Pure Luck Chevre that’s also on sale this week.  Your dinner guests will be talking about your culinary skills for days.  

Nature’s Path “Kidz” Cereal 

This week find all of our kid cereals on sale.  These are organic, gluten free, and delicious.  Channel your inner child and enjoy a bowl in house – we’ll give you a complimentary splash of rich Mill-King milk (or almond/soy, if you prefer) and soon you’ll be drinking that chocolatey, milky goodness just like when you were ten.  

Events:

Send us a message if you’d like to plan an event here – we’re a great spot to host your next happy hour, meeting, or birthday party.

Sunday, March 9th, 2-4pm

A musician’s co-op from Bloomington, Indiana - The Grant St. Musicians – is kicking off our week of live music a bit early with a Sunday afternoon set of tunes ranging from Daniel Johnston to Hank Williams.  Whet your appetite for the rest of the week with this relaxed Sunday session on our porch.  

Acoustic porch sessions are back!  Catch bands from all over the world and all over the city for three days of neighborhood music.  We kick things off the evening of Thursday, March 13th, and run all day Friday, and all day Saturday.  Find specifics, including band announcements here.  The icing on the cake?  We’ll have beer and soda floats made with Lick Ice Cream available on Friday and Saturday.  See y’all soon!

Recipe of the Week  -  Broccoli Cheddar Soup

What a week it’s been!  We’d like to thank everyone who made our Valentine’s Day Singles Mixer and Game Night such a success.  We saw at least a few sparks flying across those tables.  A very special thanks to Tiny Pies, Lick Ice Cream, id Soda, and ChocoSutra for their generous and delicious contributions.  We’re thinking we might not be able to wait a whole year to do beer floats, games, or even a singles mixer again.  Keep your eyes out for all of the above in the near future!

Coffee of the Month

Last month Casa Brasil brewed some delicious pour-over coffee on our porch with a visiting farmer from Brazil.  We were smitten with the results and thus decided to make that morning’s bean – Santa Ines – this month’s featured coffee.  Get it at a special low price just this month at in.gredients.  

Recipe of the Week

Raw Asian Slaw

We can’t get over how incredible last week’s Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop was.  Andi Jo of Traveling Recipes left all of us with so many wonderful cooking tips and recipes that we just can’t help but feature another one of her recipes this week.  

This Asian slaw is the perfect fit for the season’s abundance of cabbage and kale.  Enjoy it as a side salad, main salad, or turn it into an entree by adding brown rice and tofu like a stir-fry.  Happy, healthy eating!

Recipe of the Week

Beet this Quinoa

We’re still giddy from the energy and excitement of our recent Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop.  Fifteen of us from the community came together to share six inspired recipes from the creative wellspring that is Andi Jo at Traveling Recipes.  This one was one of our favorites.   Enjoy!

Adapted from Traveling Recipes

Ingredients:

  • 2 beets-quartered, boiled & blended
  • ½ c apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups quinoa, rinsed
  • 7 ¾ cups water
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 sprig rosemary, de-stemmed & chopped
  • 1 ½ cups pecans
  • 1 tbs Outer Spice Spicy Blend
  • Pinch salt and cracked pepper

Procedure: 

  1. Rinse quinoa and place in pot with OuterSpice and water. Bring to boil, cover, reduce to simmer and cook for 11~13 minutes.
  2. Place beets in small pot, cover with HOT water and boil until tender (10-15). Remove and drain. Place in blender with 3 tbs of water and blend. Set aside.
  3. While cooking, prep all veggies and the apple.  Place onions in a hot pan and caramelize. (To caramelize, heat pan on high, add onions and allow to brown while stirring. Once all are browned, add a splash of water, stir and repeat for 4 minutes.) Add carrots & garlic after 4 minutes and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. Turn off heat.
  4. When quinoa is ready add sauteed veggies, beet mix, vinegar, pecans and remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly until all is PINK! Season to taste.
  5. Place in serving bowl and make art! Be creative!!

A Complete(ly) Sustainable Protein?

leave a comment »

We’re all about new ideas.

We’re also into revitalizing old ideas that have gone by the wayside. Eliminating unnecessary food packaging and focusing on locally and sustainably grown foods are good examples of old ideas made new again, and so is this: eating insects.  Entomophagy, as it’s formally known, is a practice dating back thousands of years.  Today, however, Western cultures hardly know the first thing about eating bugs, even though many other culinary traditions (Mexico, Thailand, and China, to name a few) still consume insects with regularity.  As far as we’re concerned, insects are overdue for a resurgence in the West, and we’re not the only ones who think so.

Cricket!Since 2010 when the idea of in.gredients was born, entomophagy has been on our list of creative solutions to environmental and social problems. Only recently, however, did we  connect with two groups here in Austin leading the way in edible insects.  World Ento, founded in Georgia in 2010 and recently re-located to Austin, is setting industry standards for safe, sustainably-raised insects.  Little Herds, an Austin non-profit in its final days of a crowd-funding campaign, is on a mission to educate the public about the merits and joys of eating insects.

What are those merits, you ask? Insects are a highly efficient and nutritious source of protein (complete with all 9 essential amino acids), which makes insects far more viable in a resource-limited future than traditional sources.  To give some context, the resources required to raise one pound of beef can raise nine pounds of crickets.  That’s a significant difference, and one we simply can’t afford to ignore as population growth and resource depletion continue.

So how does one eat insects?  Well, with over 2,000 edible species, the options are almost endless.  Chefs from all over the States, including Austin’s own Sonya Cote, are already incorporating insects into their menus.  Not excited about a whole cricket on the end of your fork?  That’s fine, World Ento makes both cricket and mealworm flours that incorporate safely prepared insect meal into white or whole wheat flour.  From there, the possibilities range from chocolate chip cookies, to pancakes, to just about any recipe involving flour.  It’s a simple way to add a healthy, sustainable protein, and the insect flavor and texture are hardly detectable.

World Ento raises and sells clean, safe-to-eat, and ethically harvested insects (Good Karma Killing, as World Ento calls it, is a freezing process that lulls them into a painless stasis), and soon you’ll be able to find them (as a Chocolate “Chirp” Cookie Mix) at in.gredients!

Want to learn more?  Follow World Ento and Little Herds on Twitter, and come out to our pre-party (for this amazing event) next Tuesday, February 18th.  We’ll have tons of samples and a few of the big names in entomophagy on hand to talk to you in person about this exciting movement.  Hop on board – you won’t want to miss this one.

Recipe of the Week

Sunday Morning Waffles

This week we put a belgian waffle iron to work on Sunday morning to the delight of a few of our regulars.  Our multigrain pancake and waffle mix combined with Vital Farms eggs and some chopped organic walnuts and apple left ‘em sated and smiling.  With a side of Maple Valley Coop organic grade B syrup, it was near perfection.  Here’s how to make these beauties at home.  
In.gredients
  • 2 cups multigrain waffle/pancake mix
  • 2 Vital Farms pastured, organic chicken eggs
  • 2 Tbs Non-GMO Canola Oil
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1/2 cup organic, raw walnuts – chopped
  • 1/2 cup organic fuji or pink lady apple – chopped
  • 2 Tbs Organic Grade B Maple Syrup (plus more for serving!)
Preparation
  1. Combine eggs, canola oil, and water in a bowl and whisk together.  
  2. Add to waffle mix and gently stir, just to combine.  
  3. In separate bowl, combine finely chopped walnuts and apples with maple syrup.  
  4. Pour ~3/4 cup mix onto a pre-heated waffle iron (or fill the mold ~3/4 full)
  5. Sprinkle the apple-walnut mixture to cover the surface.  
  6. Cook until waffles are browned (usually ready when steaming from the sides of the iron). Keep heated in 200F oven until ready to eat.  
  7. Serve with warm maple syrup!
Makes 4-6 large belgian waffles.
