Video: Planting a Victory Garden

Dear brothers and sisters,

It seems to us that these times demand Victory Gardens.

The price of organic fruit is soaring. Moreover the supply chain is rather shaky; its becoming more and more apparent that we dare not be totally dependent upon farmer specialists hundreds of miles away.

Let’s do it ourselves- let’s grow at least a part of the food we eat. Let’s emulate our fellow Americans who planted 18 million victory gardens during the second world war.

We invite you, then, to join us in the hills above Berkeley. Starting with tomatoes and ending with potatoes we speculate on the American spirit in these times.

Please accept our best wishes for good health, prosperity and success,

Jesse Schwartz PhD

Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic

These flakes are a favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.Yeast has been an ingredient for baking and fermentation for more than 3000 years.

Nutritional yeast is made from a single-celled organism of fungi called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. In a controlled environment it is cultured, left to grow, then deactivated, harvested, washed and dried. The deactivation process prevents the yeast from being used as a leavening agent.

Nutritional yeast is a flavor enhancer that offers naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and micro-nutrients. These large flakes are a bit spicier and have more yeast flavor than other nutritional yeast.

 

Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – Organic

Imagine! Organic California almonds, grown by family farmers, covered with Fair Trade, organic Dark Chocolate. Just the thing for hiking the John Muir Trail or as a snack after gymnastics.

 

 

 

 

June Victory Garden Sale

Almond Butter 8oz – Alive & Organic


We began making almond butter over 25 years ago. Over the years, we have developed a proprietary process: we make the almond butter slowly, over several days. We slice the almonds and never grind them, which exposes the nut to the least heat possible to keep the flavors and properties of the raw nut intact. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.

We have been buying almonds from California family farmers since 1979. Almonds are a premier source of Vitamin E. A study from Harvard found that people who ate nuts frequently were less likely to die from heart disease and cancer.

 

 

 

Walnut Butter 8oz – Alive & Organic


We make our Organic Walnut Butter by slicing raw walnuts into a luxurious spread then seasoning it with a little Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt. Try this delicious Walnut Butter on apple slices or carrot sticks, with a few raisins or a little honey drizzled on top.

 

 

 

 

Pecan Butter – Alive & Organic


Our pecans are grown on a family farm in Texas and blended with a little Pink Himalayan Salt. Try our Organic Pecan Butter straight on fresh crunchy vegetables. It’s also delicious mixed with your favorite soup or finely shredded cabbage, zucchini and carrots. Use one tablespoon per serving.
