Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter January 8, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter January 8, 2019

Good morning! On this day in 1935 the world welcomed Elvis Aaron Presley, "The King" himself, who would go on to become one of the greatest pop cultural icons of the 20th century. And twelve years later on the same day, another would-be musical and pop cultural icon was born David Robert Jones, aka, David Bowie. Two HUGE stars born on the same day? What is it with January 8th, anyway? If only Kenny Loggins had been born one day later (January 7, 1948). He did pretty well for himself, mind you, eventually sharing a royal title with Elvis as "The King of the Movie Soundtrack."

Anywho, let's get out of the past and leap into the present by letting you know about our new products!

Kicking things off is Island Nut Roastery Chocolate Peanut Butter. This is a simple recipy of dry roasted peanuts, dark chocolate and a touch of chocolate that you can spread on toast, serve with ice cream or eat straight out of the jar! And Pepper's just so happens to have Portofino Sourdough Artisan Loaves on sale this week for $2.96 as well as Bakestone Brothers Organic Bagels for $3.46!

And you know what goes great with peanut butter? Honey! Now Pepper's carries Elias Honey of Prince George, BC. This mostly alfalfa/clover made honey is 100% pure, white, unpasteurized, Canada No. 1 grade and it comes in an adorable bear-shaped bottle (the nose of the bear is heart-shaped, too because you'll love it!). 

In past newsletters we've mentioned the benefits of eating and using duck eggs. Which is why we're very happy to have in stock Abby Lane Farm Duck Eggs of Duncan, BC.! We've stocked their very popular chicken eggs for quite some time so when they told us that they had duck eggs available, we quacked at the chance (insert groan here) to get them! Duck eggs are about 30% larger than chicken eggs, contain high amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids, have more albumen (which makes for fluffier cakes and pastries) and because of their thicker shell, they stay fresher longer! If you've always wondered just what duck eggs are like, now's your chance to try out these bluish-green beauties! You won't be disappointed!

This is the perfect season to whip up a delicious Indian dish. And now you can do it with new KFI Premium Cooking Sauces of Brampton, ON. We currently stock bold Butter Chicken and creamy Coconut Curry that lend themselves to just about any meats but you can just as easily substitute tofu or paneer for a delicious meatless meal! Warning: Killer Flavour Inside!

While we're on the topic of Indian foods, did you know that the origin of the plant of which green peppercorns are derived was India? And did you also know that green peppercorns are simply unripened black peppercorns? Oh, you did? Well then, smartypants, do you know what you use green peppercorns in brine for? Just asking because we now stock Italissima Green Peppercorns. You can use them in sauces, dressings, potato salad or however you like.

And back after a long hiatus is Bicks Sweet Mustard Pickles! The product description says: a blend pickle chunks, cauliflower, and onions in a sweet mustard sauce for a delicious and zesty, homestyle flavour. Add it to all your favourite meals for that perfect sweet, tangy and crunchy kick! excellent accompaniment to a simple ploughman's lunch or to liven up almost any meal!

Thanks for taking the time to read up on all things Pepper's. Stay tuned next week for another exciting edition. Until then, take good care!
