New! Items For June
Now with Chocolate Covered Raisins!
We have created an organic mix of nuts, dried fruit, and edible seeds to honor John Muir, one of America’s great prophets and seers.
The John Muir Trail in Yosemite National Park passes along a succession of alpine meadows watered by the Tuolumne River and bordered by mountain ranges. To walk on this majestic trail is to gain a feeling of warmth and gladness.
We begin with California grown, organic Thompson Seedless Raisins and coat them in chocolate.
An ecstatic snack! Imagine in school lunches! Imagine taking this along on the John Muir Trail!
These oats have more protein and healthy fats, and less carbohydrates than most other whole grains. This grain is high in beta-glucans, and contains more soluble fiber than any other grain.
Aside from making a hearty cooked breakfast cereal, rolled oats are a great addition to breads, or as a basis for energy bars and granola.
Sundried cashews have been transformed into a butter that retains its quintessential cashew flavor. Try it on apple slices, celery sticks or a wedge of persimmon.
These large organic cashews are alive and sun-dried. They are grown by family farmers in Bali. They are of outstanding quality.
These raisins are grown by Joe Soghomonian and his magnificent daughter Natalie, storied grape growers of California.
Imagine these in school lunches!
Imagine them as a snack after jogging!
We are pleased to offer you Boreal Dulse Flakes (Palmaria Palmata). The dulse is harvested by Grettir Hreinsson, a live food aficionado, in the pristine waters of a remote part of Iceland. Dehydrated below 83F.
Our Local Organic Black Beans are grown by an Elmira farmer and inventor. Although he prefers his privacy and is publicity-shy, his thoughts and discoveries can be accessed online, where he openly shares Appropriate Technology for Small and Subsistence Farms at http://www.efn.org/~itech/.
The website states that his designs are public domain, a gift to humanity, and encompass a wide spectrum of topics, from how to grow organic black beans in the valley, to solutions for weed control and pests, to instructions on how to build a wood dryer, grain huller, grain thresher, and winnower. He has been growing black beans for Hummingbird for so many years, we’ve lost count!
Coconut flour is a delicious, gluten-free and beneficial alternative to other flours.
It is high in fiber, protein and healthy fats and free from wheat and other grains. It is also low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories. Plus, this flour has a low score on the glycemic index.
This makes it a favorite among Paleo dieters, gluten-free eaters — including those with celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity — those with digestive problems, anyone with a nut allergy, those with diabetes, vegetarians and just about everyone else in between.
In reality, coconut flour is not actually “flour” in the way we normally think of it. It contains zero grains and consists of 100 percent pure coconut meat.
