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!
Since all of October is Fair Trade Month, we thought we’d continue our deals on Equal Exchange goodies. Pioneers in Fair Trade since the 1980s, Equal Exchange sources coffees, chocolates, nuts, and dried fruits you can feel good about. Need a quick snack on the go? Try mixing a handful of their delicious dried pineapple with a handful of their almonds. Healthy, delicious, and traded fairly!

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’son 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!
