Looking for something different?

Try something new. Fresh from the farm - Celeriac. Celeriac is the root of the celery plant. In the natural state, not very impressive, with its beige & bumpy exterior. Once peeled & sliced, Celeriac is a great substitute in any recipe calling for artichoke. Slice or cube & then steam or boil until tender. Gives a new twist to the traditional Artichoke Parmesan Dip or use as the base for an Au Gratin dish. The current issue of Edible Chesapeake Magazine (available at the shop) has a soul warming recipe for an Apple Celeriac Soup. A great addition to any soup or stew - it imparts a celery like flavor.

Lulu Avacados have arrived, just in time to make some guacamole for the Ravens play off game. Avacados are great sliced & added to salad or sandwiches. Need a twist of lemon? We have organic Meyer Lemons from Florida.

In commemoration of the inauguration of our 44th President, Zeke's Coffee is offering a special edition Executive Order blend. This limited edition is a blend of beans representative of President elect Obama's heritage: Kenya AA, Sumatra Mandheling & Hawaiian Kona. $15.00/lb. while supplies last.

Enjoy!
