Nugget Markets “Fresh to Market” April 2, 2008

In this issue

Farm-Fresh Cheese

Strawberry Camellia Appetizer

Take a little of the farm home with you with Redwood Hill Farm’s Camellia Goat Cheese. With a mild, buttery flavor and firm texture when young, this cheese becomes softer and more complex with age — it’s fully ripe when the center is soft to the touch (like a ripe peach). Enjoy this multiple award winner at room temperature, paired with a great Sauvignon Blanc like our featured Chasing Venus. You can also use it to make our Redwood Hill Farm Camellia appetizer.

Chasing Venus

Chasing Venus

When Captain Cook set out on his famous voyage in 1769, everyone thought he was charged with a very specific, if slightly odd, task: to track the planet Venus as it passed across the disc of the sun. History would later remember Cook for his discovery of Australia, but at the time, his true mission to find the elusive Southern Continent was kept secret. The rest of the world just thought he was out chasing Venus.

Skip to more than 200 years later, where we invite you to try the whimsically named Chasing Venus, made in New Zealand. With aggressive, pungent notes of grapefruit and gooseberry, this Sauvignon Blanc represents what New Zealand does best — and it pairs perfectly with this week’s featured recipe!

Organically Delicious

Julies Strawberry

Sample Julie's Organic Strawberry Ice Cream and you’ll see why we swear by this 100 percent preservative-, pesticide-, and additive-free dessert, made with certified organic cream and organically grown strawberries.

Health Notes from Dr. Liz:

The “Other” White Milk

Dr Liz

It may sound strange in America, but in many parts of the world, goat’s milk is actually preferred to cow’s milk. Rising in popularity here in the U.S., many people wonder if the goat variety offers any benefits over cow’s milk. Since cows and goats are both mammals, their milk is similar on many levels, but there are some differences that may offer advantages to some milk drinkers.

  • Goat’s milk is slightly lower in lactose, the sugar in both types of milk. People who are lactose intolerant (who can’t digest this sugar) may find they can tolerate a bit of goat’s milk.
  • Goat’s milk has a slight edge in calcium content, but both are excellent sources providing at least 30 percent of the daily value for this vital mineral.
  • The proteins in goat’s milk have been shown to be less allergenic than cow’s milk. While a true allergy to cow’s milk protein is not common, for those who suffer, goat’s milk may provide a nutritious alternative.
  • Goat’s milk is slightly higher in fat, but the form of fat differs from cow’s milk and may be more tolerable for the intestinal tract to digest.

Keep in mind that goat’s milk should not replace infant formula – check with your pediatrician about giving goat’s milk to your infant under one year of age.
