NEW PRODUCT THIS WEEK - Jan 28

  • Asparagus! (it's pricey $12.29/lb) but OH, what a treat! (good for kidney and liver detox, high fiber, folic acid, iron, B vitamins, and more!)
  • VINE TOMATOES - $5.97/lb
  • Parsnips - great fiber source and phyto-nutrients
  • Arugula - very high nitrate levels (more than 250 mg/100 g). High intakes of dietary nitrate have been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce the amount of oxygen needed during exercise and enhance athletic performance
  • Red Kabocha Squash - Kabocha is like butternut squash‘s sadly underappreciated sister. A single cup of kabocha has forty calories compared to butternut squash’s 60, and has less than half of the carbs of butternut squash (7 grams vs. 16 grams).  It's a little sweeter squash, easily peeled and often referred to as the Japanese pumpkin. It's gorgeous!  It's new to me and a "gotta try" on my list!

LOTS of more great greens: Lovely red butter leafy lettuce, romaine that's HUGH, rainbow chard, spinach and endive!  Geoff's Chop is ready to go for you too.

ROOT CROPS:

  • Jewel yams (AWESOMELY Large!)
  • red beets
  • Parsnips NEW
  • Rainbow Carrots & regular orange Carrots
  • Leeks
  • Garlic - White - NICE, NICE!
  • Beauty Heart Radishes (remember these?  they have that AMAZING watermelon red inside!)
  • Crimini mushrooms

FRUIT:

  • more Ruby Grapefruit
  • bananas
  • Haas avocados
  • lemons
  • Red D'anjou Pears
  • Apples  - Granny Smith and those beautiful Sundowners!
  • Navel Oranges
  • Satsuma's

More La Perla Corn Tortillas are in (authentically made, in Minneapolis!)

MEAT:
Jason Baca of Baca Beef brought in more t-bones, and a variety of roasts!  I made up a lovely roast last weekend complete with veggies (leeks, cippolini onions, rainbow carrots, adirondak red potatoes, and used some liquid aminos for seasoning and fresh rosemary! ALL purchased here at the co-op! YUM!)

OF COURSE, there's plenty more good eats!  So, come on in, say "hello", get a hug or two, meet your neighbors and friends!  The coffee's on, and usually SOMETHING to sample!  Maybe I'll bake something up for you!
