Introducing Heirloom Artichokes!

posted on March 20th, 2014 by John Savidan

The Artichoke. One of the world’s oldest-known foods, Artichokes have delighted and nourished people for several thousand years. Today, Artichokes are enjoyed in every corner of the globe, and Bristol Farms is proud to offer the highest quality and tastiest varieties available within the market place.   Most artichokes are grown from seed, which can be a lengthy process each season, so growers have identified a unique way in which to grow artichokes at a faster pace. Heirloom Artichokes, just like a family recipe, are a unique variety of artichoke grown only from root stock that has been passed down to each generation of family farmers for more than 90 years – These unique heirloom artichokes are never grown from seed. Bristol Farms' Heirloom artichokes are grown along the Pacific Oceans Monterey Bay in Castroville, California.   Whether you’ve eaten Artichokes for years or you’re about to try your first one, our produce departments will provide you with all you… Read More

A Taste of Ireland – Guinness Irish Stout

posted on March 13th, 2014 by Geoff Nicoll

When you think about your favorite Irish beer, which comes to mind? For us, it's Guinness. Guinness Extra Stout is a dry Irish Stout which gains its deep dark color from roasting the barley. It, like other traditional beers, consists of water, barley and yeast, but in this case, some un-malted barley is sent to kilns to give a toasty, smoky, coffee-like flavor. The original gave birth to a draught stout which is pressurized with nitrogen rather than carbon dioxide, which leads to a creamier, less sharp mouthfeel, and a slightly lower alcohol content. While it has a reputation of being “a meal in a glass”, a typical 12 oz serving of a draught stout contains around 150 calories, less than a glass of low fat milk, orange juice and many light beers.   Guinness is great enjoyed on its own but can also be paired with some wonderful Irish cheeses, such as Tipperary Irish Cheddar and Oscar Wilde Aged Irish Cheddar (both on sale at Bristol Farms through March 25, 2014).
