Rosemary Garlic Monkey Bread

November 06, 2015 in What's New

‘More fun than a barrel of monkeys’ is an old saying used to describe something that’s considerably amusing. Just imagine a small wooden vat, stacked with mischievous primates... FUN! Monkey Bread is so named for the way that balls of raw dough (usually coated with brown sugar and cinnamon) are stacked on top of each other in a deep pan and baked into a single loaf that is easily pulled apart by mischievous hands... also FUN! Trader Joe’s Rosemary Garlic Monkey Bread rolls with...

Seasoned Wild King Salmon on a Cedar Plank

November 04, 2015 in What's New

Trader Joe’s Seasoned King Salmon on a Cedar Plank is just what is says—a fillet of King salmon, delightfully seasoned and perfectly positioned on a plank of cedar (from a sustainably managed resource in Idaho), frozen and ready to cook. This King Salmon is wild-caught off the coast of Washington state using gillnets—a method that limits by-catch. Our supplier prepares the salmon, removing the bones and leaving the skin on one side. Then they season the fish with...

Rustic Apple Tarte

November 02, 2015 in What's New

We took Northern Spy Apples from the Niagara fruit-belt, and made a S-pie. Truthfully, it’s a Tarte; pastry, open-faced, filled with sweet and tart (tasting) apples, masterfully blended with almonds, cream cheese, cinnamon, and sugar. Yes, it lacks sophistication—but not like an uncouth uncle. Traits so unattractive in a relative have the...

Autumnal Harvest Pasta Sauce

October 30, 2015 in What's New

If only it were possible to capture the flavors of fall, bottle them up in a jar, and take them home with you. If only you could pour them over a bowl of pasta, or bake them into a veggie lasagna, or use them to dip everything from Zucchini Fries to Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Gyoza. If only reality were as satisfying as fantasy. “If only” no more, because Trader Joe’s Autumnal Harvest Pasta Sauce has arrived, and it satisfies on all of these levels...

New England Clam Chowder

October 28, 2015 in What's New

“Chowdah,” as it is lovingly known by New Englanders, can trace its origins back to the 18th century, when a recipe for the soup was published in a Boston newspaper. Still a popular fall offering, we’ve decided to try our hand at authentic chowder crafting with Trader Joe’s New England Clam Chowder. In case you were wondering, clam chowder isn’t complete without the perfect amount of clams. Wild-caught in the Atlantic Ocean, these clams are...

Gluten Free Pretzel Twists

October 26, 2015 in What's New

Long before Chubby Checker was dancing the night away, and even before Dickens wrote his Oliver, pretzels were doing the twist. Their loopy shape made of wheat flour and water has provided an interesting texture for the tongue, and an infinite loop for the eyes—probably since as early as the 7th century. Today, with the rise of gluten intolerance, it’s time for another twist on the pretzel. We created Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pretzel Twists with our customers who have gluten sensitivities in mind, but their bold crunch is nevertheless predicted to please far beyond the gluten free crowd. Our recipe makes good use of...

Pumpkin Soup

October 23, 2015 in What's New

It’s autumn. The sky is darkening sooner. The air carries a distinct chill—especially after the sun goes down. In tune with the season, our bodies, having so recently craved chilled salads, now, mysteriously, almost imperceptibly, exchange that appetite for rich, warm, belly-filling soups… It is at this time, under these conditions, that we introduce our Pumpkin Soup. But this is not its first introduction. You and our Pumpkin Soup have met many times before. And it’s always a good time. You remember...

Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings

October 21, 2015 in What's New

Soup goes in a bowl or in a cup—unless, of course, you are a fan of Xiao Long Bao. Then, your soup goes in a dumpling. Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings are a wonder to behold, both for their display of Chinese food innovation, and for their incredibly comforting flavor profile. This concept originates in the Jiangnan region of southeastern China, where Shanghai is situated. Xiao Long Bao are essentially soup dumplings, but instead of dumplings that go in the soup (though you can still certainly make this happen), the soup actually goes...
