Rhubarb Snacking Cake Recipe

May 12, 2017

Rhubarb is overflowing this time of year, and this cake is sooooo yummy with the whole wheat flower, oats, and tangy rhubarb. Since it only takes 1 cup of rhubarb and I had way more of that on hand, I snuck an extra cup in there and it was still wonderful. Get the full recipe here!

Dandelion wine time

March 11, 2017

Thank goodness for Spring! With all this rain, the dandelions are plump and plentiful. Here's a recipe for making dandelion wine at home:

1. Pick 4 cups dandelion flowers and remove as much green from the flowers as you can. A little bit of green can add a nice bitterness, but too much = too bitter.

2. Boil 1 gallon of water and pour over yellow petals. Cover with a clean towel and steep for 1-2 days. Strain the liquid from the petals (the finer the strainer the better) and place in a large pot.

3. Add 2-4 cups of sugar. Less will result in a drier wine, more in a sweeter wine. Bring to a low boil for 10 minutes and stir to dissolve sugar. Add 1 teaspoon of wine yeast. In a pinch, baking yeast can be substituted.

4. Place in a CLEAN and STERILIZED glass jar with a narrow mouth (funnel will be helpful) and place an airlock (or bubbler, can be found at brew supply stores) in the mouth of the container. If you're like me and lacking these supplies, a glass apple juice 1 gallon jar with a balloon over the mouth works too...just make sure to "burp" the air from the balloon every few hours for the first day and then 1-2 times a day after that. Let ferment for 10-14 days.

5. Use a siphon to pull the clearer wine into a new sanitized bottle or bucket leaving the goo and yeast that's settled at the bottom of the old bottle. Replace airlock for an additional 1-2 months. Can be re-siphoned halfway through to improve clarity of wine.

6. After a couple of months siphon the final product into bottles. You can use canning jars, beer bottles with a capper, or wine bottles (with a corker). Can be enjoyed right away or aged another 6 months to a year. Will only improve with time!

Seasonal Recipe Feature: Asparagus Soup

June 1, 2017

Total Time: 50 minutes

Servings: 6 appetizer servings, 1 generous cup each

This lemony asparagus soup is spiced with a touch of curry and gets added richness from "lite" coconut milk and creamy red potatoes. Top it with a dollop of crème fraîche or plain yogurt and serve warm or chilled.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Zest and juice of 1 lemon, divided

2 cups diced peeled red potatoes

3 cups vegetable broth, or reduced-sodium chicken broth

1 cup “lite” coconut milk

2 cups 1/2-inch pieces trimmed asparagus, (about 1 bunch)

Freshly ground pepper to taste

1/4 cup crème fraîche, or reduced-fat sour cream or plain yogurt

1/4 cup finely chopped scallion greens, or fresh chives

Preparation

Melt butter and oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder, ginger, lemon zest and potatoes and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in broth, coconut milk and asparagus. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, partially cover and continue to cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

Puree the soup with an immersion blender or a regular blender (in batches) until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.

Whisk crème fraîche (or sour cream), lemon juice and scallion greens (or chives) in a small bowl and garnish with a swirl of it.

Local Abundance

August 2, 2017

We recently toured several Spokane grocery stores as part of our regular assessment of how we're standing up against our competition. We found more than a few things we should focus on and a few prices we could do better on - all helpful information to ensure we're serving our customers as best we can. 


What we did notice that we're already doing better than any store in town is our abundance of local products, particularly in produce and which we also use in  our deli. And when we tell you our produce is local, that doesn't mean some organic mega-farm just East of Seattle. We mean farmers that we know, that bring us boxes of produce picked fresh early that morning, who are committed to THIS community and either live in Spokane or within 50 miles of it. 


Folks like the farmers pictured here from Tolstoy Farms, who have been growing organically in Davenport for decades. Folks like Ace of Spades Farm practicing regenerative agriculture in the Palisades 5 minutes from Downtown and who are supplying all of our salad bar greens for the rest of the season. We're serious about local and about our local food community, and you won't find a better selection of that anywhere.

3. Beat egg or egg substitute, orange juice, oil and orange rind.

4. Add to dry ingredients all at once.

5. Stir just to moisten.

6. Spoon into greased muffin cups(fill 3/4 full).

7. Sprinkle tops lightly with a bit of sugar.

8. Bake 400°F 15-20 mins until lightly browned and firm to the touch.


Enjoy!

Hericium Crabcakes

November 9, 2017


Ingredients

  • 1 lb hericium mushrooms
  • 2 large eggs + 1 yolk
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
Seasonings (can be adjusted to what’s on hand, use cilantro instead of tarragon, etc)
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 scallions, tender green and white parts only, quartered the long way and diced into 1/4 inch squares
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cut chives
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • Good pinch of fresh chopped tarragon
  • Small pinch of cayenne or a shot of tobasco
  • 2 teaspoons worchesterchire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated high quality parmesan, like Reggiano, or if you’re in the Midwest I like Sartori (optional)

Method:

Break the Hericium into manageable sized pieces so that you can inspect and clean it. If the mushroom is very clean, great, if it’s dirty, dip it quickly into a sink or bowl of cold water, give it a firm “swish” then wrap it in a towel to dry and weep water.

After the mushrooms are cleaned, sweat them in the two tablespoons of butter, and a good pinch of salt, covering the pan with a lid to help them wilt, try not to brown the mushrooms since you want the finished cakes to be white inside.

A lot of water will come out of the mushrooms while they cook, especially if you had to wash them. When the mushrooms are completely cooked through and wilted, transfer them to a bowl and allow to cool until you can handle them. Squeeze the mushrooms to release excess water, then reserve the mushrooms and juice separately.

Chop the mushrooms medium-fine, then put back into a saute pan and gently cook with their juice until the pan is nearly dry then transfer the mushrooms to a mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients, starting with the breadcrumbs. Work the mixture around to saturate the breadcrumbs, then try forming a small quarter sized piece of the mixture and cooking to check the seasoning and how the cake holds together. Adjust the seasoning if needed for salt, lemon, and tarragon if you want, then take 1/4 cups of the mixture and pack into a ring mold, pressing down so they hold their shape.

To cook the cakes, heat a cast iron skillet or other non-stick pan with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, then fry the cakes on medium heat until golden brown, flipping them gently with a spatula so they don’t break. When the cakes are hot throughout and golden brown, serve immediately, I like them with a green salad and a little spicy mayonnaise.

Gift Giving / Staying Sane Guide

by Jill, Wellness Manager

December 5, 2017


December can be super intense for all of us as the season of giving descends! It can be a frustrating experience as we feel compelled to shower our loved ones in all the gifts they deserve and keep our sanity as we navigate shopping overwhelm and holiday cynicism. To best serve our community of member/owners, I offer this guide for some awesome gift ideas and some tips to stay focused, restful, peaceful, and calm.


As member/owners, you already know that we carry beautiful and thoughtful gifts throughout our store. We made an extra-special effort for December to provide some awesome choices for your gift-giving and self-care indulgences.


Our mercantile department has adorable Feel Goodz Slippers, they are durable and cozy and for $21.99 they are an amazing price, I already have a pair of my own! Pacha Bath Bombs ornaments are here in various special holiday scents, fair-trade felted ornaments, handmade wooden ornaments, earrings for $10 a pair, Bison journals and date books, Aloha Bay Chakra Candles, beeswax candles crafted by the local beekeepers at Tate’s Honey Farm, Himalayan salt lamps, fair trade baskets (at 20% off!), the beautifully crafted Higher Mind incense, lavender eye pillows, Baraka ceramic candle-powered essential oil diffusers made in Bellingham, as well as electronic ones, and all our books and Klean Kanteen water bottles are 20% off through the end of December! We also have a small but excellent selection of 2018 calendars including northwest favorite artists Nikki McClure and Jill Bliss and the forever relevant Social Justice Cats.


If you are more interested in a healing gift, our wellness department is brimming with carefully chosen products for everyone on your list! Fire Tonic is a delicious locally-made health tonic. Spicy and sweet, energizing and warming, it’s perfect for winter time cold and flu season. Stop in and ask me for a sample! (I like to keep a bottle open behind my desk!) We also have many wonderful massage oils: Cannabis Basics CBD infused lavender and tangerine oil, Molly Muriel oils like Pure Radiance, Muscle Ease, Tranquility and more. Island Thyme is a family owned company out of Lopez Island creating amazingly effective and fantastic smelling herbal products including our super popular lavender and peppermint Headache Sticks as well as Rose Rejuvenation Facial Cream, Comfrey Calendula Cream and Rose Lavender Cream. We carry many luxurious bath products including Aura Cacia salts, The Seaweed Company’s seaweed soaks, and bubble bath by the fair-trade collective Alaffia. Our Kuumba Made Perfume Oils are inexpensive high quality scents in coconut oil and for extra dazzle for the holidays, check out their Simply Sparkles roll on glitter. Our wellness department may be small but it is has been curated to carry the most beautiful potions, elixirs, balms, body butters, and medicines we could find.


If you are more of a DIY kinda human, we feel that too! We still have a few more workshops left this season with gift giving and self-care in mind! We have space left in our December 6th Fire Cider class, December 10th is Bath Bombs 101 and December 13th we will make Tree-Scented Body Scrubs! Join us for one or more of these fun classes and do it yourself!


And finally, are you feeling the stress of the holiday season yet? Our wellness department has you covered! With many essential oils to choose from, we can help you create the mood you are looking for! Are you frazzled and anxious, tired and overwhelmed? Try Herb Pharm’s Anxiety Soother or Stress Manager or Himalaya’s super effective Ayruvedic Stress Care formula. We have many herbs and supplements to ease the season’s stresses, Vitamin D anyone? Also, we carry GABA, L-Theanine, Skullcap, Passionflower, Kava Kava, St. John’s Wort and many, many more natural remedies for stress and overwhelm. Treat yourself to a seaweed bath or a hyaluronic acid mask, boost your immunity with some delicious elderberry syrup (my personal favorite) or WishGarden’s awesome Kick-Ass Immune tincture. Remember to take care of yourself, friends. Lack of sunlight, cold weather, and increased stress can be so hard on us; drink tea, slow down, read a novel, take a walk, write a poem (even a bad poem!) spend quality time with your loved ones, stretch, nourish yourself with soups and stews, and enjoy the quiet of winter however you can.

A Year of Skill-sharing and Learning

by Jill, Wellness Manager

December 13, 2017


I can’t believe this year is almost done for! By the time you read this our wellness department will have sponsored the last workshop in our community classroom for the year. It has been a great experience learning together, our instructors and lecturers included: naturopaths, nutritionists, artists, herbalists and more to bring an array of popular topics and skills into our store. I’m happy to report that classes at the co-op will only continue to develop and in time we hope to invest in our classroom to make it a more usable and beautiful space


Here is a recap of the year: We learned the history of medicine in the United States with local naturopath Dr. Jason Kinley, as well as a fantastic guide to back-to-school health for kids. We teamed up with local nutritionist Amanda Moulton for an excellent series including kombucha-making, delicious fermented carrots, and a wonderful Mother’s day spa event featuring all-natural handmade scrubs, bath bombs and face masks. Local soap-maker Melissa Johnson of Flying Ears Ranch joined us for a DIY cleaning products class, we turned out all-natural dish soap and laundry detergent, custom scented and fabulously inexpensive! Our board member Phil Spiegel popped in for an informative and yummy (he brought samples!)intro to the Master Cleanse. Essential oil enthusiast Michelle Badgley led several classes on the healing properties of oils. Local herbalist Argyle Baukol led a discussion on healing weeds and Jessica Spurr of Earthly Apothecary offered an amazing herbal medicine series this past fall including multiple Fire Tonic classes, elderberry tincture, oils and salves, herbal vinegars, infused honeys, delicious cordials and more. Finally, we just wrapped up a three-class series on soap-making with Gayle Harp from Soap Gypsee and Bath Bombs 101 with Stefani Vandeest of Syzygy Healing Arts, so fun and with beautiful hand-made soaps and bath bombs as a result, just in time for the gift-giving season. What a wonderful experience it was to offer a space for learning and sharing!


We are at work now creating a winter herbal medicine series with Earthly Apothecary, and hopefully more DIY household classes. A class on infant and baby health has been requested, also talks on ketogenic diets and the paleo lifestyle, veganism, raw food cuisine and more. I would love to see our classes grow and expand to include cooking classes, urban gardening in our rooftop greenhouse, weed walk field trips, nutrition classes, and much much more. What do you want to share with your community? What do you want to learn? Thank you to everyone that participated and made this year’s community classes a success! We look forward to more in the coming year!

The Extraordinary Elderberry

by Jill, Wellness Manager

December 19, 2017


As we enter into the darkest moment of the year I want to give you all some information on my very favorite winter time herbal ally tonic and remedy: The Extraordinary Elderberry


Elderberry is a tasty jam-packed nutritional powerhouse rich in vitamins, bioflavinoids, fiber and anthocyanins and best of all it is local for us eastern Washington folks! Elder will give you increased energy, less stress, and a greater sense of well-being.Take this magnificent plant at the first sign of cold or flu, that first tickle in your throat or pressure in your head, and you may avoid illness altogether. And if you should get sick, according to several European studies, elder will decrease your time in illness by at least half and will begin reducing uncomfortable and annoying symptoms immediately. Elderberry soothes coughs, mucous membranes, sinus infections, headaches, and stomach pain. Elderberry aids in the building of damaged tissue, especially in liver disease. It is anti-cancer and anti-virus. It can prevent and treat allergies and arthritis. Fun fact: the Panama government actually issued the extensively researched Elderberry to their citizens during their flu epidemic in 1995, can you imagine? Elderberry is a gentle, effective, and efficient remedy appropriate for all ages and immune system function.

Here at the co-op we got your elderberry needs covered. We carry three versions: Gaia Elderberry Syrup, Black Elderberry Syrup, a combo of elderberry and Acerola cherry, Black Elderberry NightTime Syrup featuring the added sleepytime herbs Lemon Balm, Grindelia, and California Poppy, and GaiaKids Black Elderberry syrup which is an alcohol-free formula. And even better, all Gaia elderberry syrups are on sale through the end of the month! 3oz bottles are $17.99 regularly $21.99, and our 5.4oz bottles are $27.99 regularly $32.99. We also carry strait up Black Elderberry extract from Herb Pharm in a 1oz tincture for $11.99 and Zand Elderberry Zinc lozenges, perfect to soothe your sore throat and satisfy your sweet tooth with no refined sugar for $2.69 per bag and currently there is a coupon for $.50 off. We also carry Mountain Rose elderberries in our bulk department both as whole dried berries $18.99/lb and powder for $23.49/lb. Use these to make your own medicines from teas to delectable syrups (I like to make mine extra gingery and sometimes I'll add a little Echinacea root.)

Stay healthy friends!

All Fired Up

by Jill, Wellness Manager

December 26, 2017


Have you tried Fire Tonic yet? Fire Tonic is apple cider vinegar that has been infused with the fiery delicious goodness of these power foods and herbs: turmeric, ginger, garlic, onion, horseradish, jalapeno, lemon, plus raw honey. Depending on the recipe, you may find any number of herbs added, such as: dandelion, burdock, cinnamon, rosemary and clove. Anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and a powerful de-congenstant, Fire Tonic will boost your immune system, improve circulation, sustain energy, increase digestion, ease hangovers and nausea, and warm your blood.


Fire tonic is a well-known folk remedy that has many names. The first time I encountered it was nearly twenty years ago, my neighbor offered me homemade Cyclone Cider when she heard I was sick with the flu. It is most commonly referred to as Fire Cider but sadly that name has been recently trade-marked by a company on the east coast, and that company has chosen to pursue legal action against herbalists still using that well-know name for their products. Check out the website: http://freefirecider.com/ for more information. We currently carry the locally made, fantastically delicious Fire Tonic brought to us by Cultured Mama in Couer D’alene as well as Portland’s Mickelberry Gardens Fireside Tonic. We highly recommend both!


Cultured Mama Fire Tonic is on sale through the end of the year! 16oz bottles are $19.99 reg. $22.49 and 8oz bottles are $9.99 reg $12.99. If you’re curious come on in and ask me for a sample! I like to keep an open bottle behind my desk.


I like to take a small shot in the morning to get my blood flowing and bring warmth to my body, especially these days when the thermometer reads 14 degrees! I also enjoy taking a little shot whenever I feel sluggish or tired, and when I actually am sick, especially if it is in my sinuses, I will kick back an ounce and breathe! Fire Tonic is delicious on steamed greens and salads and perfectly suited for marinades. It’s also delicious added to fresh juices, teas and even sparkling water.


Fire Tonic is also super simple to make on your own. We have hosted several Fire Tonic workshops, and we are planning more in 2018. In the meantime, here is a recipe if you would like to DIY!

Happy New Year, Friends!

by Jill, Wellness Manager

January 3, 2018


The New Year is a fantastic time to take on new ideas, projects, commitments, and of course new year’s resolutions! This is the perfect moment to spend more time at the co-op to fulfill your likely desire to become a healthier, more aware, more engaged citizen of the universe! Join us in making a positive impact in Spokane! By supporting your local, member-owned food co-op you have the opportunity to participate in a community of people that truly cares where our food and consumer goods are sourced, where you money ends up and what you feed your beautiful temple of a body.


Have you heard of Bulletproof/greasy/fat/butter coffee yet? It’s definitely popular these days, and while I tend to stay far away from the bandwagon my own self, this morning concoction has totally changed my life! Not only do I have more energy throughout the day but I am satisfied and less hungry and full up on healthy fats for brain fuel! I feel focused and engaged all day long. It’s super simple to make and there are countless variations, it’s easy to make vegan, and it also happens to be super delicious and feels like an indulgence. The idea is simple, the fats help the caffeine metabolize slowly, giving you a low and slow dose of caffeine for hours, stave off cravings, and provide your brain and body with the right kind of nourishment to supercharge your metabolism and brain power.


The basic recipe is coffee and fat. I use Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil and Urban Gita northwest grown grass-fed organic ghee. Sometimes I add collagen, like when my joints are achy or after my back went out last summer. I’ve had customers tell me they add cinnamon, cocoa, and other spices to mix it up. You can easily omit the ghee and add coconut or mct oil. The key is in the emulsification. Blend well in a blender or with a stick blender and enjoy a yummy, frothy rich cup of coffee! (Also works just as well with tea if coffee is not your thing.) Apparently I have a lot to say on the topic, and I offer it now as a very pleasant, very effective, easy way to bring a new healthy practice into your life. And fyi, Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil and Collagen Protein are on sale through the 16thof January.


Speaking of protein, we have many options of delicious powders and shakes to help you increase your protein intake, build muscles and energy and provide you with ample vitamins and minerals. Vega (also on sale through the 16th) is a fantastic Vegan option, we have several varieties with or without greens. All are food based and packed with superfoods and are delicious. We also carry Genuine Health’s fermented proteins, which are easy to digest and quite tasty, both in vegan varieties and greek yogurt. Chapul is the newest addition in our protein category. Tap into your primal side and try their cricket protein based powders. Crickets are a sustainable, traditional, uber paleo way to take your protein, (no it is not crunchy!) We also carry protein snack bars from each of those protein companies. And if you’re more of a whey protein person, we have that too! We even carry Tera’s Whey in a goat milk sourced formula.


I also want to remind you all that we have the premier most bad ass produce department in this city. No where competes with our selection of local items or with the quality, seriously I’ve looked! And I take my veggies very seriously. Although, shout out to the Rocket Market where many of our farmers also sell their goods, and for their limited space are definitely doing it right! Our produce is 100% organically grown and tended with great care by Brooke, Ben and Conner, I invite you all to come in and check it out. Price compare, quality compare, do what you gotta do… The truth is that there is no better vehicle for nutrition in your body than fresh fruits and vegetables. Currently the fresh deals in produce department are offering smoking deals on lemons, 2 for $1, green kale for $1.49/bunch and red pears at $1.79/pound. If eating healthier is on your new year’s list, come in and load up.


I know 2018 is just another year, and I know new year’s resolutions are a made up idea attached to the already arbitrary concept of the calendar, which makes it very easy to be cynical about it or to just ignore the idea altogether, and if that’s your take this year, I applaud you, you be you. And honestly, that is usually my attitude. But this year I’m feeling good, friends, I’m feeling bold and ready to create some lasting changes that benefit my health, my community, my family, and the planet. I feel so grateful for the co-op right now, the community, the resources, the amazing food… all of these things line up with my goals. So, thanks for taking this on with us, we exist because of you, our member/owners. And I gently encourage you to take ownership, of this co-operative grocery store that you have equity in, of your own health and well-being, our growing and thriving Spokane community, and our tumultuous and crazy and beautiful planet.~JH

The Greenhouse is Growing!

by Jill, Wellness Manager

March 6, 2018

Last Sunday we hosted a meet and greet cleanup party and onion planting in our rooftop greenhouse. This year we are excited to be working with some amazing community partners! River City Youth Ops, Growing Neighbors, and Snapdragon Flower Farm/Zinnia Designs showed up to help scrub and brighten up the space. We were joined by Jorge and Madison of CasCano Farms for the planting, and I took the opportunity to pick their brains on the basics of greenhouse microgreen production.


We are super excited about the possibilities this year, and have already begun with our usual garden starts program, planting veggies, herbs, and flowers to be sold here at the co-op. River City Youth Ops, Growing Neighbors and the Community Building Childcare Center have adopted space in the greenhouse for their own urban farming and gardening projects. Once the greenhouse is cleared out in the early summer, we are looking to start up a microgreens project and beyond! Our dreams have always been big regarding our rooftop space, and when I recently got the opportunity to sit down with Beth of Zinnia Designs, looking at examples and rooftop garden design plans from all over the globe, I realized that these dreams are within our reach. With an engaged and passionate community backing us up, we can absolutely create a thriving, educational, beautiful, and functional rooftop urban garden for us all to learn from and enjoy.


Look out for future opportunities to participate: fund raisers, volunteer planting days, workshops (the first will be on building a worm bin!) and more. Email me at [email protected] if you are interested in joining the greenhouse volunteer list. Happy Spring!
