Cultured Salted Butter

August 24, 2015 in What's New

While invaluable in sautéing and baking, butter—really great butter—stands on its own. What makes really great butter? A little culture helps.

Beyond the enviable culture-elicited flavor, butter is bettered when churned and churned and churned. The lengthier churning lowers the...

The Fruits Of Quick Pickling

August 17, 2015 in Product Stories

Summer. Bounties of glistening, seasonal fruit at our fingertips… We love it. Can’t get enough of it. Feel compelled to get creative with it. Take peaches. There is something to be said about biting into a perfectly ripe, juice-dribbling-down-your-chin peach. Sometimes, though, you want more of a bite in that bite.

August 14, 2015 in What's New

Nope. Nothing ordinary here. This pizza is so extra-ordinary, really, that we don’t even call it a pizza. Nah-ah. It’s a flatbread. And not any ordinary flatbread. This one hails from the small Italian town of Visso, deep in the mountains of the extraordinary Monte Sibillini National Park. Do you see the pattern of extraordinary-ness? And we haven’t even gotten to what’s on the flatbread! Let’s do that, post-haste. Trader Joe’s Burrata, Prosciutto & Arugula Flatbread begins with...

As we often do with products we’ve had for a spell, we decided to revisit our Salmon Jerky to see if it could stand any improvement. Someone suggested trying a different kind of salmon, and when the idea of using Wild King Salmon came up, we got pretty excited. Naturally, we wanted to know how it tasted... but we were also very curious about this “Wild King.” Who is he, and where is his domain? Why is there a fish named after him? What crazy thing did he do to earn him such a feral handle? Sadly, once we realized there was an...

August 07, 2015 in What's New

Eaters are always sprinkling stuff on their food to add flavor... sugar for sweetness, chili flakes for heat, salt for savor. But what about sprinkling stuff on your food to add nutrition?
