It’s the perfect way to showcase the season’s best produce — this week try it with asparagus, salad greens, radishes, and mint!
Pinto and Jacob’s Cattle Beans, VT Bean Crafters
Pinto Beans are classic bean for refried beans, the beautiful darker brown speckles on these oblong beans fade when cooked and become a creamy filling dream bean that takes on flavor extremely well.
Jacob’s Cattle Beans are one of the traditional baking beans of New England. It is a plump, white and red speckled, kidney-shaped bean with vivid maroon splashes. It is full-flavored, holds its shape under long cooking, and stands up well to plenty of seasoning.
Butternut Alfredo Sauce, Terra Cotta Pasta Co.
A healthier spin on Alfredo!
The origin of this sauce comes from one our most popular soups that we sell in our retail stores, Butternut Squash Bisque. Customers would comment that they pair this soup with our ravioli and fresh pastas. We decided to give it a try and married the butternut bisque with our roasted garlic Alfredo sauce. Turns out they were right! We here at TCPC especially enjoy it with our chicken or turkey meatballs and fresh pasta. Also great with grilled chicken breast or pork chops.
Farmstead Aged Gouda, Smith’s Country Cheese
This Gouda rivals any made in the Netherlands. It has the same mild taste, creamy texture and small, bubbly eyes. An excellent dessert cheese, it is also great for cooking and melts beautifully. Bronze Medal Winner at The 2016 Big E Cheese Competition
At Smith’s, old-fashioned family traditions and hard work are combined to produce their Farmstead Cheeses. All of their cheeses are made fresh on the farm with rich milk directly from their 200 dairy cows.
Fiddlehead IPA Bratwurst, VT Salumi
Fresh ground pork mixed with delicious spices and Fiddlehead IPA is really all it takes. VT Salumi never adds gluten fillers, sugar, or preservatives and their animals are raised without antibiotics so you know its good for you and your family
Thank you & we'll see you soon!
