Fall 2015 Community Partner Vote

leave a comment »

Did you know that every time you reuse a container at in.gredients, we donate 5 cents to our non-profit community partner? We also donate 1% of our sales every First Friday (read: Block Party!) of the month.

For the past six months we’ve been happily partnered with Guide Dogs of Texas, a non-profit organization committed to providing the best guide dogs for visually impaired Texans.  After a great 6 months of supporting one another, it’s time to select our next partner!

From a large pool of wonderful applicants, the in.gredients team whittled it down to just four finalists.  Vote online or in-store (counts for more!) up to once per day until the 21st of October  We’ll announce the winner before our November First Friday Block Party! Find the mission statements and voting poll below:

farmshare_logo

Farmshare Austin envisions a future of resilient local food economies that provide farmers with livable incomes, value the resources needed to farm, and ensure organic food access. We take a whole-systems approach to community food security by educating and training future organic farmers and working with nonprofits in Central Texas to distribute produce to people in need.

allieslogo

Allies Against Slavery builds slave-free cities by mobilizing communities, supporting survivors, and catalyzing system transformation. We believe that only by bringing all sectors of society together can we reach our ultimate goal of making Austin a slave-free city – where traffickers can no longer exploit the vulnerable and where survivors can truly heal.

 urbanrootslogo

Urban Roots uses food and farming to transform the lives of young people and to inspire, engage, and nourish the community. Urban Roots provides paid internship opportunities to youth ages 14-17, to work on a 3.5 acre urban, sustainable farm in East Austin. These young people learn critical life and job skills, discover their capacity for leadership, and gain a sense of service and community.

PEASlogo

PEAS (Partners for Education, Agriculture, and Sustainability) is dedicated to connecting communities to the natural world through edible education, school and community gardening maintenance, and outdoor learning in order to inspire the preservation and conservation of our precious planet.

Thanks for voting and good luck to the Finalists!

in.gredients
Serves 4

  • 1 large eggplant, peeled, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large zucchini (or summer squash of choice), sliced into ¼-inch-thick rounds
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more
  • ¾ cup olive oil, divided

  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes, divided
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup torn basil leaves


in.structions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Toss eggplant, zucchini, and 2 tsp. salt in a colander. Let sit 30 minutes, then pat dry with paper towels. 
  2. Heat ¼ cup oil in a large Dutch oven or other heavy ovenproof pot over medium-high. Add half of eggplant and zucchini and cook, stirring constantly, until vegetables begin to take on color, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Repeat with ¼ cup oil and remaining eggplant and zucchini.

Stir in zucchini and eggplant, then top with remaining 1 pint tomatoes (do not stir); season with salt and pepper.

CLOSING @ 5 PM TONIGHT!

Jones & Davis Wedding

ANNOUNCING NEXT WEEK’S MUSIC LINEUP! 

Keep your eyes on our Facebook event page for the latest updates + announcements.
Meet (soon-to-be) Mr. and Mrs. Jones

This week marks a special occasion in the life of not only our store, but also two of our favorite regulars. Erin and Schuyler met here at in.gredients around the end of 2013 and, after a few short months of getting to know each other, soon found love. After some time, Schuyler popped the question to which Erin replied with a resounding “YES!” After a little deliberation, the obvious choice for the venue was in.gredients, where they had made so many memories before. They are an incredibly witty, intelligent, and sensible couple who always find a good way to make one another laugh. We were delighted that they asked us and are excited by the idea of our first wedding on the grounds. This weekend we are proud to usher them into the world – from our humble house – as man and wife.

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)

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.

Promotions and News

Happy Hour(s)
$1 off pints/cans of beer and glasses of wine
$2 off pitchers and bombers

Mulled Wine Monday & Tea Pot Tuesday!

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.
