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.

Dark fruit and red plum notes along with well balanced acidity are hallmarks of this wine.

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.

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 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!).
