Niepoort Tawny Port and Stilton cheese:
This is a classic cheese and wine pairing. Because of its high butter fat content, combined with its robust and tangy flavors, Stilton cheese needs a wine that will stand up to it. The Tawny Port has big nutty flavors and high alcohol content, so it matches up perfectly!
Panettone is the traditional cake of Milan, Italy, usually prepared for Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. This year Nugget is proud to offer this delicious cake in two sizes from Bauli, one of the oldest and most famous producers of panettone.

Cooking Tips for a Perfect Standing Rib Roast
During the holidays, I am a die-hard fan of prime rib tradition. Whether it’s slow-roasted in an oven or cooked over hot coals, prime rib is never complete without horseradish and a little au jus.

We love these handmade, Fair Trade ornaments from World of Good for our tree this year. Shown above are some of our favorites, including “Hello, Gourdgeous,” handmade by artisans in Peru. They represent a 2,000-year-old tradition in which artisans carved, etched and burned ancient stories and local news into gourds. Not only are they beautiful to have in your own home, but they also make great host or hostess gifts!

Health Notes from Dr. Liz
‘Tis the season for cranberries, and they’re fresh in Nugget’s produce section from September through December. This wonder fruit is loaded with proanthocyanidins, which help stave off urinary track infections (UTI). Consuming 10 ounces of cranberry juice, 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen berries, or ½ cup sauce daily keeps E. coli, the culprit bacteria, from sticking to the bladder wall, lessening UTI infection risk. Anthocyanidins also help lower artery-clogging LDL levels, making cranberries a merry fruit for heart health. And the fiber in cranberries is the water-soluble type that’s been shown to help curb appetite as well as lower circulating levels of cholesterol.
This season, freeze fresh cranberries for use any time of the year for a tart addition to smoothies or salads. You can also cook them along with orange zest and a bit of honey for a tangy sauce on fish, poultry or grilled tofu. And fresh cranberries always make a tasty addition to muffin and quick bread recipes or boxed mixes. -Liz Applegate, PhD
