ALFN Local Food Club:  Market High in January

Good Morning,
The Market is open. Someday, it’ll be old enough to do it by itself, but we’re still training it.
The market is doing great right now. Lots of orders and new customers! Keep it up!
Some fun things:
Pike’s Peak Beef Roast from Bluebird Hill Berry Farm. Jerry has thoughtfully offered a recipe for this cut of meat. He actually includes recipes with most of his beef cuts. Check them out.
Sugar Snap Peas from Arkansas Natural Produce.
Turnip Greens from North Pulaski + Turnips from ANP/Barnhill + Sausage from Youngblood/Falling Sky/Farm Girl + Red Potatoes from Kornegay = a really good turnip soup. Think about it.
AND we published a digital cookbook for our Growers’ Potluck! Check it out here. Free to download!

Featured Item: Crackerman Crackers!

CRACKERMAN CRACKERS are all organic made with golden and brown flaxseed and organic sesame seed. Traditional bread spices such as cumin, fennel and coriander and extra virgin olive oil guarantee a great tasting product. The crackers contain a low percentage of whole wheat and unbromated, unbleached flour. Due to their carefully selected ingredients they have many nutritional benefits. We do care about our products, one reason we use whole spices and grind them just before baking. This goes for both the breads and crackers.

Organic Flours:
We use unbleached, unbromated flours because we would prefer to give you unadulterated food. Our wheat is shipped from a small family owned mill in Montana, because the soils up there are ideal for an exceptionally flavorful, nutrient rich wheat berry. The fact that our flours are stoneground, a low temperature grinding process, means more pro minerals and aroma in your bread as opposed the vast majority of mills which have their cylinders grinding at 350-400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Organic Seeds:
The seeds we use for our Fraulein’s Harvest bread are from certified Organic purveyors.
They are golden and brown flax, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds. we soak and sprout them over night for several reasons: Flavors and nutrients are being released, the bread remains moist over a long time plus the seeds will be better processed by your body. These ingredients plus the whole wheat in our bread provide you with complex carbs, a diversity of fiber and great multilayered taste.

Organic Spices:
More than a dozen bread spices are widely used for breads in Central Europe. This comes for a reason: spices like caraway, fennel seeds and cumin are used for better digestion, while others like cloves, coriander or mace are complementing the type of bread, be it rye, wheat or dried fruit bread. We use classical German bread spices for our loaves and grind them just before baking. If you grind your own spices and inhale the fresh scent you will know why.

Crackerman Crackers back in stock!
