First and foremost I am excited to announce that our newest addition to the New Seasons Market line is a Chai Latte cupcake! While I currently have no photo of it I will soon and I can assure you with the amazing black chai tea infused cake I created and the addicting chai spice blend John created for buttercream it will become your new favorite. Speaking of favorite... I have a new one. I have never been a huge fan of chai lattes (excluding those of the cupcake variety), and it wasn't until recently that I discovered what all the fuss was about! There is a fair trade, organic tea on the market called gypsy tea! It is sensational in my opinion. I came across the chai tea the other day by accident when I was looking for a black tea to wake me up in the morning seeing as I am trying to cut back on my coffee intake lately, which is hard to do now that I know where to find raven's brew(I'm getting ahead of myself, that's a whole other blog). I read the label and all the spices sounded amazing yet it still didn't click in my head that it was chai. When I got it home I realized that it said right on the front of the tin in big bold letters..... CHAI BLACK TEA. How I missed that in the store I may never know? I was a little let down at first but then I remembered all the amazing spices in it and said what the hell... it's got to be good. So I brewed it up added a hint of agave and a splash of soymilk and within aninstant I had my new favorite tea! So it seems that as of late, things have been a lot of this, a lot of that, and a lot of chai! Blessings to all and Happy Autumn.
Wow, to say we've got a surplus of eggplants and tomatoes is an understatement! John is just about to tackle the task of making tomato sauce and canning it all! I'm sure he'd love to share a jar with you when he is all finished! He is also hard at work perfecting a recipe for eggplant parmesan... Stay tuned and I'll post pics of the finished product of both! Thanks to all who check in with our humble little blog and for all your support! We love you.
