New Products at Healthy Living and Cafe (Saratoga Springs, NY)
Organic Pink Lady Apples – Crisp, sweet, tangy, this is a great apple.
Organic Pomelo – These are big, much bigger than a grapefruit. They can be pink, white, or more rose/grapefruit colored in the center, and the rind can vary from bright green to almost lemony yellow. They are super fragrant, and are generally cut in half and eaten with a spoon (à la grapefruit) or peeled, sectioned, and eaten in slices.
Fun fact! Terms concerning the anatomy of a citrus: the pith is the white part between the skin and the sections, the part between sections is called the membrane, and a section without pith or membrane is called a “supreme.”
Organic Satsuma Mandarins: We’ve talked about these before, they’re supersweet and easy to peel. Best when heavy for their size, bright orange, and not at all squashy (though they may give a bit when you squeeze them).
Organic 2# Lemon Bags
Eco-Grown Vermont Cranberry Co. Cranberries (loose)
Conventional Pom Wonderful PomegranatesOrganic Kumquats: You eat these little guys whole! I would dearly love to see someone candy them this year. The ones that we will get this time around look more like the ones below than the more orange and even littler ones you might see later this year.Organic Meyer Lemons: Meyer lemons are thought to be a cross between mandarins and lemons – they have a smoother, more orange flesh, and a spicier, more complex flavor. They are much sweeter than regular lemons and have a very distinctive flavor. Only available seasonally, these are excellent for desserts due to a lower acid profileGROCERY & REFRIGERATED DEPARTMENT:Kru Coffee Collective: From Saratoga Springs!

Beehive Seahive: This was another line of cheese I was blown away by in Atlanta. The owner of this company has some wacky ideas for cheese, but when they work it’s amazing. The Sea Hive is hand rubbed with wildflower honey and Redmond Real Salt. A full-bodied cheese with a smooth, creamy texture. You want to try something really amazing try their barely buzzed cheese. That’s rubbed with espresso and lavender, subtle notes of butterscotch
