Bragg Apple Cider
In 400 B.C., Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, treated his patients with natural apple cider vinegar because of its powerful cleansing, healing and germ-fighting qualities. While not quite considered medicinal today, Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar is still naturally good: Made from whole organic apples, aged in wood, unfiltered, undiluted and completely preservative-free!
Apple Core = Problem No More
Here are some handy tools: Grip-Ez’s Apple Corer and Apple Wedger and Corer. Use the corer to remove apple cores easily, or get the wedger-corer combo to help slice apples into eight perfect pieces.
“Apple Hill” Stuffed Pork Loin with Barsotti’s Apple Juice Pan Jus
The weather is turning, which means fall; for folks here in the valley that means Apple Hill time, and this dish is a refined way to use those delicious gems from the orchard. Dried Bing Cherries are plumped with Rum to add a little depth and sweetness to the tart Granny Smith apples. If you like pork chops and apple sauce, you will love this uptown version!
Fuji Apple Slaw
I love to combine fresh, crisp flavors and textures to slow cooked, rich dishes. The acidity and crunchiness is a nice foil to the often muted flavors of roasted or stewed meats and poultry. Serve this as a garnish or side dish with the “Apple Hill” Stuffed Pork Loin. Your guests will enjoy the novelty of the same fruit in two different formats.
— Jeff Clark, Nugget Markets Chef
Can’t make it to Apple Hill this year? Let Nugget bring Apple Hill to you. We’re currently carrying two apple varieties from Gold Bud Farms — and look for more as the season revs up. If you’re looking for a tasty eating apple, the Braeburn is a great choice, with its sweet, balanced flavor and juicy firmness. For pies and other baked treats, the Mutsu makes a great baking apple (if you can fight the urge to eat them all before you’re through).
It’s true — Nugget’s delicious apple pies are totally, completely, 100% trans-fat-free. Each is made with flavorful fruit, a delicate crust and a good balance of spices. Look for our other trans-fat-free fruit pies too, including peach, cherry, berry, rhubarb and blueberry.
This great cheese for fall is handmade in Germany’s pristine Allgäu Mountains, and it is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted! The smooth, creamy interior harmoniously blends with its sweet, fruity, apple-cider-washed rind. Great for melting, or enjoy it on its own with a glass of hard cider and crusty bread.
Transitioning away from trans-fats
No doubt you’ve heard about the evils of trans-fats. These fats are formed when food manufacturers partially hydrogenate liquid oils, such as corn oil, into a soft, solid fat. This fat is great for taste and texture in baked goods like cookies, cakes, chips and crackers. But while trans-fats may make for a tasty cookie, they spell trouble for your heart health.
