maize's smoking' hot cashew brittle Sweet as an Angel
Hot as the Devil

It's hot and it's crunchy.

It's delicate and quite munchy.

It's not too thick nor too sticky.

There is not a chewy one in the bunch,

and what you get is an incredible crunch.

Easy to break, it's not easy to make,

it's smokin’ hot cashew brittle.

This Cashew Brittle is addictive. It might be too hot for some, but others have glommed onto it like a butterfinger does to your teeth! It has a following at the shop already!

Full disclosure: I had to eat so much brittle to ensure and to get a good handle on the nuances of how it reacted with my teeth. It did not stick nor adhere, it just crumbled away like I want it to. It's good...

PNW Co-op Pedrosillano Cafe Garbanzo Beans Pedrosillano Café
From land formed from the ice age.

The Non-GMO Pedrosillano Café Garbanzo is smaller in stature than their brother, the York, yet they swell by 15% after soaking. These really smooth beans, with a bit of nuttiness, are a favorite with chefs wanting to make the very best hummus. As versatile as all garbanzos are, they are also great in salads and soups.

How are these different than the commodity beans you see in the market? Traceable and fresh. From planting to harvest, from bagging to us, every bean has a route we know! It's this freshness that makes them better. I expect the natural growing process of the amazing Palouse doesn't hurt either.

Pacific Northwest Farmers Co-Op is made up of family farms, generations old, spanning over a 100 years. Located in Idaho and Washington states in an area called The Palouse, an area that is ripe for sustainable farming.

These naturally formed rolling hills make up what is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Hidden under the mounds is a Silty Loess, remnant from an ice age past, that stores the winter snow melt to help water and feed the crops in the summer. With conscientious crop rotation, cover cropping, and minimal tillage, this careful stewardship of the land results in using almost 50% less fossil fuels per crop acre.
