Chicken & Mushroom Pelmeni

July 26, 2017 in Category: What's New

Tortellini, pierogi, wonton, ravioli, gyoza…whatever you call it, the humble dumpling is a food phenomenon found across cultures that can be transformed by all manner of available fillings: winter squash, savory meats & cheeses, summer veggies…even sweet apples for dessert! In Russia, these dumplings are called pelmeni (a derivative of the word pelnyan, loosely translated as “bread ear” due to the dumpling’s ear-like shape). Historically, they were a convenient means of preserving meat and feeding a family over the course of a long winter...

The beans (garbanzo beans grown right here in the U.S. of A., as a matter of fact) are...

Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

July 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

Working with craft coffee roasters in California, we start with the same medium roast, 100% Arabica bean base as our original Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate.

Mix one part Coconut Cold Brew with two parts water or milk, and pour over ice for a lush, tropical hot weather treat. If you want to keep the coffee as concentrated as possible, you can use it to make...
