Ash Rind Brie

July 10, 2017 in Category: What's New

A cheese board is a perfectly acceptable stand-in for dinner, and one that can be made all the more exciting with the appropriate accoutrement. The fromage on which we’ve focused to fill our cheese plates (and stomachs) during the fiery month of July is none other than Trader Joe’s Ash Rind Brie. Ash, typically associated with goat cheese, is paired with fresh cow’s milk to create this luxuriously elegant, slightly earthy, soft ripened Brie...

Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

July 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

Working with craft coffee roasters in California, we start with the same medium roast, 100% Arabica bean base as our original Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate. The beans are ground coarsely and specially filtered, then something special happens—natural coconut flavors are added to create a bold, smooth tasting, tropically-inspired brew—namely, Trader Joe’s Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate. Mix one part Coconut Cold Brew with two parts water or milk, and pour over ice for a lush, tropical hot weather treat. If you want to keep the coffee as concentrated as possible, you can use it to make...

Organic Sprouted Tricolor Quinoa

June 30, 2017 in Category: What's New

While rice is arguably the most widely consumed staple food for much of humanity, a small pseudocereal known as quinoa [keen-WAH] is making strides towards larger, global consumption. It started several thousand years ago when Incas on the high Andean plains domesticated the plant that bears this grain-like seed. It continues, today, with Trader Joe’s Organic Sprouted Tricolor Quinoa. Adding to our current quinoa selection—which includes Organic Quinoa, Organic Red Quinoa, and Organic Tricolor Quinoa—this new offering is unique in that it’s Sprouted. The Organic Quinoa is grown in...

Aguas Frescas—which translates to fresh waters in English—are like juice, but lighter (60 calories per 8-ounce serving) and less sweet. Aguas Frescas invariably contain water and sugar, but they get their unique, complex flavor profiles from...

Salad Sideshow

June 26, 2017 in Category: Entertaining

While some think summer cooking is limited to grilling, and others think the words "summer" and "cooking" don't belong together at all, we beg to differ. Whether you're at the stove or simply tossing raw ingredients together, side dishes support the aforementioned activities and offer a fresh counterpoint of flavor to heavy grilled fare. And within this supporting cast of sides, perhaps none are more important than the refreshing summer salad...

Onion Salt

June 23, 2017 in Category: What's New

Allium is the fancy (read: scientific) name for the onion and its many relatives, including garlic, scallions, leeks, and chives. There are alliums that you won’t find in the kitchen—ones that add bright purple and pink flowers to spring gardens—but we tend to keep to culinary endeavors rather than horticultural ones. And with that in mind, we’ve created a new seasoning salt to celebrate these flavorful alliums: Trader Joe’s Onion Salt...
