Pinnacle Organics is a C.C.O.F. (California Certified Organic Farmers) and I.F.O.A.M. (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) certified organic fruit and vegetable grower that maintains two farms, one near San Juan Bautista, which grows cool season crops like lettuce and cabbage, and the other near Hollister, which grows hot season crops like, bell peppers and sweet corn. Pinnacle Organics uses a drip irrigation system, in conjunction with cover crops and a 4-acre dedicated composting plot to help conserve water, preserve soil quality, increase nutrient retention, reduce weeds and keep away pests.
Jelich Ranch is a century old 14-acre fruit orchard that was purchased in 2000 and became certified organic in 2003. Rather than subdivide the property into valuable Silicon Valley residential, the new owners fell in love with the land and decided to preserve the ranch’s history. For over 20 years, Jelich Ranch has been updated by removing diseased trees, clearing overgrown areas, bringing in new fruit varieties and new trees to revitalize the orchard.

Warm Up on National Hot Chocolate Day!

This Sunday, January 31st, is National Hot Chocolate Day, one of the yummiest food holidays of the season. Hot chocolate dates to about 500 B.B. with the Mayans, who referred to the drink as xocōlātl, which translates to “bitter water”. Cocoa seeds were crushed and ground to a paste, chili peppers, cornmeal, cold water and other ingredients were mixed and transferred between to cups until the drink became frothy. Xocōlātl is far from the sweet hot chocolate we drink today. We’d like to share with you one of our favorite hot chocolate recipes, it’s rich, decadently sweet and true treat for your taste buds.

Ghirardelli Decadent Hot Chocolate
Ingredients
1 packet Ghirardelli Premium Hot Cocoa
1 square Ghirardelli chocolate
6 oz. milk

Directions
Heat the milk in a small pan over low heat until hot. Once hot, turn heat off.

Pour the Ghirardelli Premium Hot Cocoa packet into a mug.

Unwrap the chocolate square, break into a few pieces and place in the bottom of the mug.

Slowly pour the milk into the mug, stirring frequently until powder is dissolved and chocolate pieces are melted.

This honorable title is due to Napa cabbage’s abundance of essential nutrients like, vitamins C and A, calcium and magnesium, it is low in calories, high in folic acid and packed with health boosting antioxidants. Napa cabbage belongs to the same family as kale, Brussels sprouts and broccoli. It has an oblong shape and ruffled leaves, with a texture that’s described as both crisp and tender.

10 Good Luck Foods for 2021

Do you have a special tradition of ringing in the New Year? Maybe enjoying a glass of champagne, or preparing a special meal? We’ve collected 10 New Year’s traditions that are said to bring prosperity, good luck and good health.
1)Spain and Mexico follow the tradition of eating 12 grapes as the clock strikes midnight for good luck.
2)Turkey and some Mediterranean countries have pomegranates on New Year’s Day. Pomegranates have long been associated with good luck, abundance and fertility.
3)While in the Southern United States, black-eyed peas served on a bed of collard greens is a customary dish. The two foods represent prosperity and wealth.
4)Speaking of collard greens, eating green vegetables, like, brussels sprouts, green beans and kale on New Year’s is also good luck.
5)Germany and parts of Eastern Europe have cabbage with their meals, in the form of coleslaw and sauerkraut. The long strands of cabbage symbolize a long life, while cabbage itself symbolizes money and prosperity.
6)In Greece, families bake a vasilopita, a lucky New Year’s cake that’s baked with a coin hidden inside. The cake is cut at midnight and the person who gets the coin is said to have good luck for the year.
7)One of the tastier traditions many countries have adopted is eating pork on New Year’s Day. Pork is said to encourage progress for the year ahead.
8)Many Asian countries have a tradition of eating long noodles on New Year’s Day. The long noodles are said to lengthen one’s life.
9)In Italy, lentils are a staple for many New Year’s meals. Lentils resemble coins, so eating lentils means bringing on good fortune.
10)Having fish on New Year’s is a sign of good luck. The fish’s scales resemble coins, a sign of prosperity, they swim in schools which invokes abundance, and lastly, fish continually move forward which is a sign of positive momentum.

Do any of these traditions sound fun? Maybe you can start a new tradition of ringing in the New Year this December 31st!

Keeping the Holidays Safe

This holiday season will likely be very different from past years in how we celebrate. Large gatherings with family and friends will be replaced with smaller groups. Despite these long, challenging months, we’ve all endured, we can still be thankful for everything we have. With the health and safety of our customers and employees, we have a few suggestions we hope can help relieve the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping.
1) Make your shopping list before heading to the store. Since holiday shopping is one of the busiest times of the year, try to shop early morning hours or later at night. There will be fewer customers in-store and shorter lines to wait in for check-out. And as a reminder, the availability of some items may be in short supply, so sooner is better when gathering your ingredients.
2) Try to designate one person to do the shopping. With fewer people in-store at one time, the easier it will be to navigate the store and shorter wait time at check-out.
3) Face coverings are still required at all times while in-store. Be sure to cover both the nose and mouth. Non-compliant customers will be politely asked to leave the store.
4) We will do our best to direct those customers toward aisles and items. We ask that customers be patient and respectful to our employees and fellow shoppers.
Bianchini’s Market is a family business; we continue to make the safety of our customers and employees our highest priority. We wish you a safe and happy holiday season and thank you for your ongoing support.

Safety Guidelines for the Holiday Season

This holiday season will be very different than we are all used to celebrating. Larger gatherings of family and friends will be replaced by smaller groups. Social distancing and the spread of Covid-19 is at the forefront of many people’s minds. But despite the long, challenging months we have endured, we can still be thankful for everything we have. With the health and safety of our customers and employees, we have a few suggestions we hope can help ease the stress of Thanksgiving shopping.
1) Plan out your list and to make your shopping trip earlier than previous years. Thanksgiving shopping is one of the busiest times. The availability of some traditional items may be in short supply, so sooner is better when gathering ingredients. Frozen turkeys can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 7 days before cooking.
2) Try shopping during the early morning hours or later at night during off-peak hours. There will be fewer customers in-store and shorter lines to wait in for check-out.
3) Try to designate one person to do the shopping. With fewer people in-store at one time, the easier it will be to navigate the store and shorter wait time at check-out.
4) Face coverings are still required at all times while in-store. Be sure to cover both the nose and mouth. Non-compliant customers will be politely asked to leave the store.
5) We will do our best to direct those customers who have pre-ordered turkeys and full turkey meals to designated areas with proper distancing. We ask that customers be patient and respectful to our employees and fellow shoppers.
Bianchini’s Market is a family business, we continue to make the safety of our customers and employees our highest priority.

Enjoy those Thanksgiving Traditions!

The people of Italy eat lentils and sausage on New Year’s Day to bring prosperity. In Turkey, people throw pomegranates on the doorway for good fortune. The more seeds that fall out, the better the fortune! In Greece, families cook a vasilopita, a lucky New Year’s cake that has a coin hidden inside. The vasilopita is cut at midnight and the person with the coin is said to have good luck for the year! The Scottish have their own word for New Year’s Eve celebrations, Hogmanay. The first person that crosses your home’s threshold is to bring gifts symbolizing good luck for the coming year. Scottish whisky symbolizes a merry year ahead, Black Bun, a spiced fruit cake, symbolizes bountiful food for the year, and a lump coal represents warmth and fuel. Do any of these tasty traditions sound good to you? If so, maybe you can start a new tradition this New Year’s Eve!

Celebrate National Eggnog Day

Did you know that National Eggnog Day is celebrated every year on Christmas Eve? Eggnog’s origins begin around the 13th century in medieval Britain, then called “posset”, a hot, milky, ale-like beverage. Due to the higher costs of the ingredients at the time, it was often used in toasts to prosperity and good health. The eggy drink crossed the pond in the 1700’s with the American colonies, where it prospered due to the abundance of dairy cows and chickens. While the name’s etymology is still a mystery; the term nog either comes from noggin, a wooden cup, or grog, a strong beer. By the late 18th century, eggnog became the official name. Did you know that George Washington created his own eggnog recipe? Stop by your local Bianchini’s and pick up your favorite brand or maybe try something new. We carry a variety of premium and organic eggnogs as well as non-dairy “nogs”. Join us in celebrating one of the most unique and festive beverages of the season.

Cosmic Crisp Apples Have Arrived

Have you heard about the latest buzz in the apple world? It’s called the Cosmic Crisp, and it’s been in development for 20 years at Washington State University’s Tree Fruit Program. The Cosmic Crisp is a cross between and Enterprise and Honeycrisp, taking the best attributes of both to create an apple that’s large, round, generously sweet, crisp and juicy. It gets the Cosmic portion of its name from the prominent lenticels scattered on the apple’s surface that resemble the cosmos, and Crisp from its parent apple, the Honeycrisp. The Cosmic Crisp is one versatile apple, it can be enjoyed as a snack, in a salad, cooked or baked into your favorite recipes. Make a stop by our produce department on your next shopping trip to pick up this amazing apple.

The Mediterranean diet focuses primarily on plant-based foods, such as: fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and legumes. Emphasizing on lean meats such as fish and chicken, while limiting red meats. And seasoning foods with herbs and spices in lieu of salt.

A special food or drink to ring in the New Year? Here are a few traditions from around the world. In Greece, families cook a vasilopita, a lucky New Year’s cake that has a coin hidden inside. The vasilopita is cut at midnight and the person with the coin is said to have good luck for the year! In Spain, revelers consume 12 grapes, one grape for every toll of the clock. Some people even prepare their grapes ahead of time, peeling and seeding them to be as efficient as possible. The people of Scotland have their own word for New Year’s Eve celebrations, Hogmanay. The first person that crosses the threshold of the house is to bring gifts symbolizing good luck for the coming year. Scottish whisky symbolizes a merry year ahead, the Black Bun, a spiced fruit cake, symbolizes bountiful food for the year, and a lump coal represents warmth and fuel for the Yew Year. And in the Southern United States, Hoppin’ John is the customary dish that’s served. The dish consists of rice, pork-flavored black-eyed peas - representing coins, cooked greens - representing money, and a side of cornbread – representing gold. Do any of these tasty traditions sound good to you? Maybe you’ll start a new tradition of ringing in the New Year!

L’Etivaz Swiss Cheese & Adopt an Alp

Exclusive to Bianchini’s, L’Etivaz Swiss cheese, imported from Alpe Tompey in the Swiss Alps. This special variety of cheese is Gruyère style, meaning it has a sweet, slightly salty flavor, and a creamy texture. As it matures, the flavors become more assertive, and the cheese develops a slightly grainy texture. Unlike most Gruyère style cheeses, L’Etivaz cheese can only be produced between May 10th through October 10th, and must be produced over an open fire, and then and aged in the L’Etivaz cellars for a minimum of 135 days.

The Zjörien Family, members of the Adopt an Alp program, wakes up very early each morning to make their special L’Etivaz Swiss cheese. Astonishingly, this family can produce 5 to 6, 55 lb. wheels of cheese a day! This nice family was kind enough to allow us to film their cheese making process. We brought back a 3/4 wheel of this special cheese, with more will arriving in November. Bianchini’s has adopted this Alp for the past two years. And in doing so, we’ve had amazing experiences and were given access to specialty cheeses you can’t find anywhere else.

Join the Adopt an Alp program, support transhumance and get rewarded with Alp cheese. Transhumance is the process of moving farmers, their family and the animals to the highlands in the summer and the lowlands in the winter. This ensures that the cows have a varying diet, by not eating the same foods, their milk produces new, natural flavors, which results in a higher quality, better tasting cheese.
