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

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.

Wine of the Week: McPherson Cellars 2012 La Herencia

La Herencia,” or “the heritage,” is our Spanish-style red wine made to give a tip of the hat to both the Spanish explorers who first crossed the Texas High Plains, and to those who first envisioned a Texas wine industry. This delicious blend is 75% Tempranillo, 9% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre, and 5% Grenache & Carignan, packed full of juicy bramble fruit, tobacco leaf, and spice. The wine fermented in stainless steel and aged fourteen months in new and neutral French oak giving more weight than 2010 but still round tannins and a pleasantly savory finish. Enjoy this wine on its own or with your favorite Texas BBQ.

Coffee of the Month: Fara Coffee Holiday Roast

Wine of the Week:  Duchman Winery 2011 Vermentino
Vermentino is widely planted in Sardinia, Liguria, Piedmont and to a smaller extent in Corsica, Bolgheri, Languedoc, and Provence. Outside of Sardinia (and Texas), Vermentino is known by a variety on monikers including Pigato, Favorita, and Rolle. Vermentino is a late ripening varietal, and the resulting wines are typically aromatic, light, and possess a refreshing acidity. Duchman Vermentino is right at home with fresh seafood, particularly shellfish and oysters.

Vendor Spotlight: Happy Hemp

Monthly profile spotlighting some of our favorite vendors

Tara Miko (Owner)

     One of the things we love is a healthy lifestyle but Tara Miko has turned it into her passion and work. Happy Hemp was founded on a need, a need to be healthier and is on it’s way to prove to the world it’s a need for everyone too.

After a bout with a string of health issues Tara searched for anything that could better her health but be natural and sustainable at the same time. When a friend recommended she try hemp seeds she went off in search but came up empty handed and when she did finally find them (the next town over) they were stale and tasteless.

She decided to take it upon herself to source seeds research the ideal conditions for them and learn just what makes these tiny seeds so good for you. What she found was putting 3 tablespoons in a meal adds a complete source of plant based protein, all of the vitamins and minerals the body needs on a daily basis, heart healthy fatty acids, the perfect ratio of omega 3 & 6 and a healthy dose of dietary fiber.

With all that in mind she started Happy Hemp with a mission to revolutionize the way we think about hemp and health. She now has her seeds in over 120+ stores nationwide and we’re honored to have her delicious products on our shelves.

She even dropped by and talked to our staff about them so if you want to try a sample or have any questions feel free to ask. For those not in Austin, her website has a wealth of information along with recipes that are simple and quick.

Brrrrrrrrr….. baby, it’s cold outside! We’ve plunged into the frosty two months (days?) of the year that always seem to take us by surprise in Texas. We dig through the depths of our closets to unearth the gloves and scarves that offer our usual flip flops and tank tops a well earned vacation. We gather around a fire with family and friends, imagining the possibility of snow. And we come together around the table to share in the nourishing bounty of the winter growing season, which continues to offer us hearty greens, bright citrus, and plump root vegetables in every color of the rainbow.

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!

in.gredients

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 lb red potatoes (diced)
  • 1 1/2 lb sweet potatoes (diced)
  • 1/2 lb carrots (diced)
  • 2 cups garbanzo beans, pre-soaked (cover w/ water and let sit overnight)
  • 2 limes 
  • 1 bunch shallots (chopped)
  • 2 Tbs sesame oil
  • 10-12 cups water or veggie broth (or add 2 Tbs Better Than Bouillon to water)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 Tbs ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat sesame oil in a large stock pot and add shallots, sautéing until golden brown.
  2. Add chopped garlic along with all the spices.  
  3. Add chopped potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots.  Mix thoroughly.  
  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

  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 5 Tbs Earth Balance Butter spread
  • 2 cups mini vegan marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped raw pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground ginger

Directions

  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!
