From Rachael:

How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Are you stuffed yet? We've had three lovely meals with family and with friends including our big turkey dinner on Monday (thank goodness for the extra day!) After this we'll coast on leftovers and what is in our fridge for two weeks!

Except for grape juice...

UNPASTEURIZED GRAPE JUICE this Friday September 12th! Order NOW until Wednesday October 10th at NOON!
Eva and Rene make this juice from a combination of their Pinot Noir and table grapes. It is light pink in colour. It has a slight cloudiness to it (not quite as much as cider) since it has NOT been strained, filtered or treated with sulphite. Because it is unpasteurized it will leave a little 'prickly' feeling on your tongue. It will slowly continue to get more 'prickly' while in the fridge but the progression can be halted in the freezer. This is a nice and sweet juice that will taste very different from steamed grape juices.

This juice can be frozen to use at a later date like Christmas and New Years (or birthdays). Just be sure to pour some off the top to leave room for expansion.

Unpasteurized Grape Juice is $13 for 3 liters in a plastic Apple Cider jug
. It's the only thing on the offering for for October 12th and under "pantry>beverages" (until my wonderful tech support husband cleans up the categories)!

We defrosted the last jug from 2011 this weekend and drank some on Monday, so it's definitely time to stock up again in our house!

Salsa, Baby!
On Friday we took home two of Candace from Transpire Organic Farm's "Salsa Verde made Easy" kits and my 8 and 5 year old made them Sunday. They husked and washed the tomatillos, and while I chopped and roasted them (with the jalapenos, which we did not let the kids seed and stem) the kids juiced the lime and the rest of the ingredients were prepped and put in the food processor. Not only was this some mighty tasty salsa, but the kids enjoyed eating and serving it even more because they made it themselves! If you are looking for a dip for your tacos, tortilla chips or any other Mexican dish, I'd highly recommend this! We only had to add lime juice, sugar and salt - everything else was included and each kit would make almost 500 mL of salsa!

Things to look for:
  • We have Nuts from Grimo - This is your last chance to stock up on Chestnuts, Heartnuts, Persian Walnuts and Black Walnuts! They are super fresh and you can crack nuts all winter!
  • The Nutty Bakers are back on the order form!
  • Green Table Foods are STILL on the order form
  • We just stocked up on Monterey Jack and Colby cheese from Millbank Cheese. Awesome for quesadillas and Macaroni and cheese
  • Eggs! In addition to the eggs from Traditional Foods which are GMO free, we now have local conventionally fed eggs from localEGG as well as pastured organic eggs from Apple Creek Farm to offer you. To make the prices on the organic eggs a bit more reasonable we have reduced our markup.
  • This is the week to stock up on Tofu and Wild Fish from Manitoulin Island. Both from Ontario Natural!

Special of the week from Traditional Foods:

From Gayl:
Thank you to everyone who filled out our survey. The survey draw winner picked out their favourite cut of beef at October 5th pickup. If you would still like to tell us how we are doing, we are always listening. Feel free to ask Ross for a survey the next time you see him!

For October 19th pickup, get $10 OFF Traditional Foods 10lb box of beef and pork patties. Regularly priced at $64, now only $54.

Gobble gobble!
