We are very excited to announce that our line of kitchen staples will be available starting next Tuesday, August 25th! These are organically grown, heirloom variety grains and legumes that are simply the best quality we could find. Not only are they better quality than anything we can find in stores because of the growing methods used by the farmers, but they are also milled and stored cold to preserve their nutrition and flavor. If you’ve never experienced genuinely fresh grains and legumes, you’re in for a real treat!
We're starting with the following products:
Artisan Handmade Fine Yellow Polenta
Classic-style, authentic polenta from new-crop white or yellow flint corn. It displays appealing corn aroma and flavor, and a silky, beaded texture when properly cooked.
Carolina Gold Rice
The grandfather of long-grain rice in the Americas, Carolina Gold is a delicate, non-aromatic rice with chameleon starch properties that allow it to produce fluffy, individual grains; creamy risotto; or sticky Asian-style rice, depending on how it is cooked.
Savannah Red Rice
Red rice is so rich in influence, it is hard to know which version of this dish to consider. As far back as the Inquisition, Sephardic Jews fleeing Spain and Portugal arrived in Savannah, bringing connections to Mediterranean food ways that have endured to this day. Savannah Red Rice is a robust accompaniment to such bold flavors as tomato and seafood. Its red color deepens during high-heat cooking and becomes crispy and deeply flavorful.
18th Century Toasted Stone Cut Oats
Fresh and loaded with natural oils, this new-crop oats are so moist they must first be toasted to be hulled. Besides reducing cooking time, toasting produces a burst of caramel alongside a light, clean backdrop of fresh oat flavor.
Sea Island Red Peas
Ruddy and diminutive, Sea Island Red Peas represent the variety of heirloom field peas that created classic southern dishes. Expressing the vigor of their African diversity with bold flavor and exceptional nutrition, Sea Island Red Peas cook to a sweet, creamy richness.
Appalachian Heirloom Sweet Flint Popping Corn
This small and delicate Appalachian heirloom flint corn certainly handles its age with remarkable grace and taste. When was the last time you tasted popcorn that left impressions of sweet corn and honeysuckle rising from toasted corn, and a final hint of pure sweetness?
Are you foot-loose and fancy-free when it comes to cooking up a storm in the kitchen? Do you like to create your own masterpieces with tried and tested recipes? If so, you might relish this slightly healthier version of traditional Scotch eggs.
Scotch eggs were invented by Fortnum & Mason, an old-fashioned department store established in 1707 in the UK. This surprisingly simple yet delicious recipe has two main ingredients: eggs and pork sausage meat. It makes perfect picnic food, travels well, and can be eaten hot or cold.
Being in the garden is healing. Digging in the soil with bare hands and feet while soaking up the sunshine. Fresh water washing the toes via the hose. Where bees are buzzing, hummingbirds fluttering, buds a-blooming and beans are growing.
