Organic Argan Oil from Morocco

Posted by Bea Davis on Nov 13, 2014 3:09:47 PM

Mustapha's Organic Argan Oil is extracted from the seeds found inside the fruit of the Argan tree, which is an ancient tree native to Morocco that grows between the base of the Atlas Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Argan fruit resembles a large olive, with a thick green skin. The skin is dried and removed to reveal the Argan nut, which is stone-crushed to access the seeds found inside. These seeds are toasted and then crushed and pressed to make Argan oil. The precious oil extracted during this process has rich, buttery, toasty nut aromas that accurately hint at the oil's unique flavor profile: nutty, toasty, with an amazingly light mouth feel.

 

180274

 

Argan oil is excellent for bringing light, nutty flavor to many foods. It can be used similarly to olive oil, and brings unique flavor to vinaigrettes, couscous, simple vegetables, soups, grilled meat, and seafood. Also try it drizzled over ice cream for a light but decadent dessert.

Chickpea Flour

garbanzoflour

Chickpea flour—also known as besan, gram flour,  garbanzo bean flour and cici bean flour—is popular in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking and baking. Use it in dishes like falafel, hummus, socca, farinata, papadums and pakoras. It is also a wonderful ingredient for gluten free baking. Try it in crackers, pizza crusts, and breads. Chickpea flour also works well in cakes or quick breads with strong flavors like chocolate and pumpkin. It can also be used to thicken soups, sauces, or gravies. Use garbanzo bean flour to replace up to 25% of the flour in your baking to increase protein and fiber.

Virginia Peanuts from The Peanut Shop of Williamsburg

Posted by Bea Davis on Nov 5, 2014 12:23:02 PM

The peanuts they're famous for... handcooked in small batches, distinctively unique, and always great tasting. Virginia Peanuts are one of 4 types of peanuts grown in the U.S. - primarily in Virginia and the Carolinas - and are the largest kernel size of all. They source only the "cream of the crop" - super extra-large, the highest grade available, for their signature nuts. Only 3% of the total harvest qualifies. And all are backed by their rigorous "gold standard" of excellence, a legacy of Southern tradition, and surprising health benefits.  All are made in the USA, by a Virginia peanut company, supporting American farmers. Just a few of the many good reasons to enjoy our Virginia Peanuts.

Artisanal French Brie and Camembert

Posted by John Duffy on Oct 30, 2014 3:43:39 PM

Le Pommier Camembert and Brie du Pommier

 

CamBrie

 

 

 Firmly rooted in the Norman cheesemaking tradition, Le Pommier Camembert and Brie du Pommier from Normandy are amongst the most authentic-tasting cheeses available in the USA. The milk for these cheeses is sourced from herds of the classic Normande breed in the heart of Normandy. Famous for their milk quality, this traditional breed produces rich, grassy milk that is high in the proteins needed for cheesemaking. This milk is gently pasteurized and a complex blend of cultures is added before the cheesemaking begins. A lactic set and traditional methods are used to make a cheese that will develop and ripen with proper aging.

Le Pommier Camembert exemplifies the classic Camembert characteristics of rich, full flavor and earthy mushroom notes. Brie du Pommier is made with the same cultures and techniques, but its larger form ripens differently than the smaller Camembert. Emphasizing grassy, lactic flavors, this full-flavored Brie develops complex aromas and a smooth texture as it matures.
