New Product: Jade Green Pearl Rice

Try our new Jade Green Pearl Rice, made from organic short-grain rice (a.k.a sushi rice, grown in China) infused with bamboo concentrate. This rice has a moist texture, a delicate taste, and a great light green color from the chlorophyll in the bamboo!

Cooking tips:

  • Do not rinse it! Rinsing can remove the bamboo, which dulls the dolor.
  • 1.5 to 1 water to rice ratio
  • Simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Just cook until the water is absorbed.
  • Steam covered for 5 minutes. This final step is important to get the right texture. Jade rice is moist and stickier than a standard white or brown rice.

We now have cassava flour!

Also called manioc or yuca, cassava flour is gluten-free and grain-free (made from cassava root), and one of the best replacement for wheat flour because of its starchy content. Our cassava is organic and produced in Brazil. Available at $4.19/lb.

You can try it in simple recipes such as waffles and pancakes, or delicious 5-min tortillas.

Barley and Silken Tofu

Hey there! Just wanted to give you a quick heads-up that our beloved silken tofu has been taking a little vacation from our shelves lately. Unfortunately, our vendor hasn’t provided us with an estimated return date, but don’t worry – they haven’t given our favorite tofu the boot.

A quick update about our barley situation. Unfortunately, our supplier, Champlain Valley, has had to discontinue production for the year, so our beloved barley won’t be available for a while. Not to worry though – we’re on the lookout for another supplier to fill the barley-shaped hole in our hearts. Thanks for your understanding as we navigate this grainy situation!🌱✨

Bread Alone Levain Loaf, December 11

Exciting news from yesterday’s Union Square Farmer’s Market find – a Levain loaf (French Sourdough) from Bread Alone! My husband declared it a taste sensation, and it looked so good to me, although I can’t enjoy it myself since I’m gluten-sensitive. I’ve already ordered more for Monday, December 11th. But the joy on his face made it all worthwhile.

Each uncut Bread Alone loaf is $6.99, and the sliced version is $6.70 – a small price for the culinary bliss that awaits us next Monday!
