Nugget Markets “Fresh to Market” Oct. 30, 2008

In this issue

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

Grip Ez

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.

Buffalo Bill’s
Pumpkin Ale

Buffalo Bill Pumpkin Ale

This is one of our most sought-after seasonal beers. It is believed that George Washington brewed beer using this bright orange squash. In modern times, Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale is a true original microbrew that uses baked and roasted pumpkins. They also add cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg to create what has been described as “pumpkin pie in a bottle.”

6-pack/12 oz. bottles

Get that Rosy
Apple Glow


Get a little too much sun this summer? MYCHELLE has the perfect product line for you. Their Apple Brightening products contain some of nature’s most effective skin brighteners, such as Applephenon. They also have natural fruit extracts that effectively diminish hyper pigmentation due to excessive sun exposure and aging.

Featured Recipes

Apple Hill Pork Loin

“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.

Apple Hill at Home

Apple Hill Apples

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).

All the Goodness, None of the Trans-Fats

Apple Pie

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.

German Rhinette


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.

Health Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

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.

Trans trouble:

  • Studies show that diets rich in trans-fats from foods such as margarine and baked goods correlate with a greater risk for heart disease.
  • When people use margarine instead of olive oil or other vegetable oils in cooking, circulating cholesterol levels rise, boosting the risk for vascular disease.
  • Trans-fat-rich diets also lower the good cholesterol HDL — more bad news for heart health.
  • New scientific studies also show that trans-fats are linked to obesity.

Avoiding trans-fats:

  • The American Heart Association recommends less than 2 grams of trans-fats daily. Check Nutrition Facts on food labels for the trans-fat content per serving and aim for zero (trans-fat-free means less than 0.5 grams per serving).
  • Look at the ingredient list on food labels and avoid foods made with partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated vegetable oils.
  • When purchasing baked goods, select those made with trans-fat-free oils, such as Nugget’s Trans-Fat-Free Pies.
