Almond Adventure.

 

 

We love finding new products to share with you. When we first Laurel from Nectar & Green we were amazed by her knowledge, passion and the taste of the product. Laurel and her team make pressed Almond Milk, and we are excited to bring it into our Whole and Double Shares this week.  Founded in 2015 by Laurel McConville, Nectar & Green uses whole organic almonds sourced from a small family farm in central California. Their signature Sea Salt + Honey is lightly sweetened with raw honey from Ipswich MA and sea salt harvested from the Atlantic in nearby Gloucester MA. Each pint was pressed and bottled fresh for Family Dinner this week. If you love it let us know!
 
About the Nectar & Green Almond Milk:
Our almond milk is made from whole, organic almonds—a lot of them. First we sprout them. Then we press them. Then, we combine them with a short list of ingredients that we find especially beautiful and nourishing (like honey from local hives and sea salt from the Atlantic). We never use heat to process, and we say no to refined sugars and fillers. Because almond milk should be delicious, and what you put in your body matters.

It has so many uses; coffee, milk for your granola, add it to oats (they're on the slate for next week!), soak your bread for a different French Toast, or drink it straight. So many ways to love it!

RECIPES

One Pan Chicken and Potatoes with Apples: "One Pan" may be my two favorite words when it comes to hunting down recipes.  That math means fewer dishes and more Netflix.

Skillet Chicken with Lemon: The America's Test Kitchen video are so smart and engaging. And the chicken looks pretty good too.

Chocolate Almond Milk cookies: YUM.

Potato and Haddock Puttanesca: You an omit the anchovies but don't lose the olives or garlic. They give this dish the punch that will wake you up from mid- week doldrums.
