Turkey Vegetable Noodle Soup

November 17, 2014 in What's New

As anticipated as the holiday meal itself—the homemade soup that follows. Usually, souping only starts after the guests are stuffed and comfortably football-watching, and the dishes are clean (or soaking). For those who savor the soup, but not the waiting (or the hassle), we have something special in store: Trader Joe’s Turkey Vegetable Noodle Soup. Our Turkey Vegetable Noodle Soup tastes like...

Guide To Turkey Roasting

November 17, 2014 in Guides

Become A Roastmaster In Seven Steps: On the big day, take the turkey out of the fridge and let the bird mellow for about 2 hours at room temperature. Once the bird is “zen,” unwrap and remove the temporary wire truss. Locate and remove neck & giblets (don’t see ‘em? don’t forget to check the back end), set aside for potential future use (stuffing, gravy, soup or gumbo). Rinse the bird inside and out with cold water. Pat dry, inside and out, with paper towels and set on a clean, flat surface.

The Coffee Cup Quintet

November 12, 2014 in What's New

For so many, coffee is an essential part of the morning. So much so, that our “pre-coffee” personas can be sorely lacking—not only in personality, but also in the hand-eye coordination and basic math skills it takes to grind, measure, scoop, and pour. It’s a bit of a Catch-22, really... we need the coffee to help us make the coffee, but we can’t drink the coffee until we make it. Although Trader Joe’s can’t help you with all of life’s conundrums—we can help you with this one: The Coffee Cups Quintet to the rescue! If you already...

Raw Milk Smoked Cheddar

November 05, 2014 in What's New

Our November Spotlight cheese has a lot going for it. It’s cheddar, for one. That single fact alone puts it near the top spot of favorite U.S. cheeses. But this is not just any cheddar. As suggested by its name, Trader Joe’s Raw Milk Smoked Cheddar has some unique characteristics that contribute to its very enticing profile. It starts with milk that comes from cows that have never been treated with rBST. The milk itself is “raw” (unheated), which allows the varieties of naturally present bacteria to...
