Sometimes a cheese takes you by the hand and leads you on a wonderful journey.
Explore the tantalizingly fresh flavors of a new offering from the Co-op’s Cheese Island: Organic Beemster Gouda from Holland. This limited released cheese is an edible masterpiece with a creamy, silky smooth texture and rich, buttery flavor. Aged for 3 months, it’s made from pasteurized milk from heirloom cattle who graze on the lush, mineral-rich soils of the Beemster Polder, the oldest and most renowned of the polders (low-lying land shored up by dikes) in The Netherlands. On sale now for $14.99/lb!
This premium Dutch gouda is exquisite, seasonal, and certified organic. It’s also perfectly suited for cooking and serving at every meal. For breakfast: use it to flavor scrambled eggs or enjoy it on crackers or toast with fresh fruit. Add Beemster gouda to salads and soups for lunch, or on pasta, or a cheese board. Its rich flavor pairs nicely with pickled vegetables and olives. Try tossing cubed Beemster gouda with wilted chard, rice, or noodles for a quick, sweet-flavored cheese sauce. Or get adventurous and try a slice with rhubarb pie or crisp!

‘Tis the Season for Fresh Juices!
Are you a juicing fanatic, new to liquid cleanses, or just love a tall glass of fresh juice? We have what you need! With the fantastic deals on cucumbers, celery, and cases of juicing oranges, grapefruit, and lemons, now is is great time to stock up for a proper juice cleanse!
We’ve been getting nettles from Well Fed Farm in Bow for the last couple of weeks. There are so many delicious and exciting things to do with nettles, I don’t have room enough in this post to sing their praises. Here’s what they do (really) well: a natural stimulant, nettles are best consumed in the morning and early afternoon — unless, of course, you’re looking for a late-night pick-me-up. They are great for the adrenal glands (those endocrine glands that sit on top of the kidneys that release “happy” hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, in response to stress). Healthy adrenals = more efficient responses to stress! Worried about stinging yourself while preparing a nettle treat? Never fear! Nettles actually produce their own antidote. So, if you find yourself with a bit of a nettle sting, either mash up (perhaps with gloves, if you wish) a nettle leaf, or just pop a leaf or two in your mouth, chew well, and tah-dah!, its antidote has entered your system and the itch will go away and you can get back to business. Make nettle vinegar (careful there, it’s fiery!), nettle pesto (made the same way as “normal” pesto, just replace basil with nettles), or experiment with other uses. Enjoy this stimulating, fiery nettle season!
