Organic Cream Top Plain Whole Milk Yogurt

September 15, 2015 in What's New

What makes good yogurt? Good milk is the answer. What makes good milk? Milk that comes from 100% grass fed cows. Our new Organic Cream Top Plain Whole Milk Yogurt is good yogurt that comes from good milk—which makes it great! But there’s more. Not only do our milk cows graze exclusively on grass (they are fed no grains), the grass they eat is 100% organically farmed. Keeping with the theme, our milk cows are also never...

Organic French Baguette

September 04, 2015 in What's New

Following World War I, French workers rebelled against the upper crust for low wages and poor working conditions. By the early 1920s, the workers’ strikes had won important reforms, including strict limitations on long and grueling work hours. Under the new laws, French bakeries were forbidden to operate between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. Unfortunately, well-rested bakers also meant that traditional French boules (round loaves) would not have enough time to bake before breakfast...

Organic Sriracha Ranch Dressing

August 26, 2015 in What's New

A good Ranch dressing is creamy, herbaceous, and tangy. Sriracha—in addition to being the hottest condiment in the country, figuratively speaking—is known for its chili pepper heat, tempered by just a bit of sweetness. Put them together, and you find yourself with an embarrassment of riches—creamy, spicy, herbaceous, tangy, and just a tiny bit sweet. You also have...

Organic Butter Lettuce & Radicchio

July 27, 2015 in What's New

To have a cut, pre-washed bag of greens is a luxury that many cooks today might take for granted. Before such an invention, one had to chop the head, rinse the leaves, rinse them again (and maybe again), and then dry them using either the slow ‘air-dry’ technique, or far too many paper towels. So... let us give thanks for bagged lettuce—specifically Trader Joe’s Organic Butter Lettuce & Radicchio. We carry a variety of prepared lettuce blends, but this is one of our...

Organic Kettle Style Potato Chips

June 26, 2015 in What's New

Exactly what kind of “kettle” is involved in making “kettle chips”? It turns out, the kind of kettle isn’t what’s important. What’s important is the fact that frying thinly sliced potatoes in any kind of smaller vessel, requires cooking in smaller batches. And chips made in smaller batches have a longer cooking time—due to the drop in oil temperature each time a new batch is added. More time in hot oil yields a chip characterized by serious...

Plus, there’s an abundance of calcium, magnesium, and antioxidants in there, too. These tiny, shiny, black, powerhouse seeds are cultivated for us in...

Organic Pesto Tortellini

June 05, 2015 in What's New

Originating from the Genoese word pestâ, which means “to pound” or “to crush,” pesto has been dazzling its fans for ages. That name references the traditional preparation of the sauce—the crushing together of ingredients with a mortar and pestle. As an ode to this time-honored Italian sauce, we’ve created Trader Giotto’s Organic Pesto Tortellini. And we think we really crushed this one. Made in Italy, this 100% organic dish...
