New Products 2/26/2018 (Vermont)
Let’s be honest. The end of winter can be a drag… but we’ve got the new products to spice things up in the kitchen and inspire end-of-winter entertaining. From a variety of hot, smoky peppers, vegan dips and salamis, an award-winning cheese, and zippy kombucha, these offerings will put some pep back in your step!
Organic Shishito Pepper Pints Shishito Peppers are for pan frying whole, adding a pinch of salt, and snacking on while sizzling…they don’t usually make it far since we just eat them out of the pan! These mild beauties have a smoky, succulent flavor and about one in every twenty is a little hot, making them an excellent no-fuss appetizer.
Organic Anaheim Peppers Anaheim peppers are on the mild end of the hot pepper spectrum, and gain a lot of sweetness when you roast them. Not your most typical pepper, though some people can’t get enough of their bright, crisp flavor.
Organic Poblano Peppers Poblano peppers are a very mild chili pepper that can sometimes have significant heat. They are decidedly earthy and smoky in flavor, especially when roasted, so the most common thing to do with fresh poblanos is to stuff ‘em and roast ‘em!
Organic Honey Mangoes Honey mangoes are generally smaller and more oblong than the regular round red and green (Atkins) mangoes we’re used to, and they live up to their name in being sweet. More importantly, there’s a lovely balance of sweet and tart flavors, and the flesh is smooth and creamy. If you like red and green mangoes, you simply must try these!
Organic Coconuts These husky coconuts are grown to full maturity so that they have a lot of coconut meat, but don’t worry, they still have lots of fresh coconut water, too.
Pacific Organic Roasted Tomato Stock & Organic Tomato Red Pepper Stock 8oz organic tomato stocks. Attention homecooks: This is the shortcut for delicious soups and sauces you need on-hand, at all times.

Jasper Hill Farm Little Hosmer Another award-winning cheese out of Jasper Hill, this is their mini version of a new-world-style brie. Named for a small pond in Craftsbury Vermont, Little Hosmer has a complex array of flavors at peak ripeness including cauliflower, creme fraiche, and toasted nuts.
