Visit our deli to go case and look for a new seasonal offering: the Co-op’s own Organic Cranberry Relish. This zesty relish is made from three simple organic ingredients: whole cranberries, oranges and sugar. Part sweet, part tangy and all delicious, this uncooked gluten free relish is perfect for serving alongside cheese, grilled vegetables, pork dishes as well as that famous Thanksgiving bird!
But don’t stop there, our handmade relish can find a place at any meal. Serve it for breakfast alongside sausage and pancakes. For a festive fun appetizer: mix the relish with cream cheese and toasted nuts and serve with crackers and raw vegetables. It also makes a tasty dessert when added to muffin mix or try spooning over a dish of vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
Take home some Fresh Organic Cranberry Relish today and enjoy the flavors of fresh organic seasonal fruit in many ways!

You also know that I have a love of pancakes and chocolate…..When the co-op put up this years Theo’s Chocolate display of “OMG HOW CAN I CHOOSE JUST ONE KIND” I picked a spicy drinking chocolate (that’s a fancy way of saying Hot Chocolate) Chipolte Spiced, and yummy!!

Visit the Co-op’s Cheese Island and take home some scrumptious Pistol Point Chipotle Cheddar from Rogue Creamery in Central Point, Oregon. Rogue’s robust natural white cheddar is rich with the smoky sweet flavors of the Southwest. Usually it sells for $19.99/lb, so right now it’s a steal at $9.99/lb! Hurry on over and try it for yourself!
This tasty gluten free cheese is made with vegetarian rennet and rBST-free milk from Rogue’s own local dairy, where animals graze on lush pastures for most of the year. Studded with bright orange ground chipotle, the artisan cheese makers hand roll the house blend of chile spice over cheddar curds to create a stunning reddish orange marbled pattern that dazzles on a cheese board.
