We love ginger for it’s pungent, warming, spicy flavor. The versatility of this ancient root makes it one of our favorite super foods.

Ginger has a distinctive fragrance and heat that can be used in sweet or savory dishes. At Western Market, we have ginger in candies, salad dressings, marinades, sodas, kombucha, beer, and chocolate. We also carry ginger teas, fresh ginger, minced ginger, powdered ginger, and crystallized ginger.

PICKLED EGGS

Reviving an old bar food standard

 

Some of you may remember the good ol’ days, when pickled eggs were a standard bar food. Or, maybe you’ve been up to Tandem Ciders in Leelanau lately and enjoyed one of their house-made pickled eggs (they go wonderfully with ciders). If you’re looking for a nostalgic, delicious and slightly off-beat snack, try our tried and true pickled egg recipe. You’ll find all of the ingredients at the store, along with our resident pickled egg expert, Jarred (the Wine Guy)

Cheese master Alana has brought in a new delight from Clinton Township, MI based cheesemaker S. Serra Cheese Co. Serra’s handmade ricotta & mozzarella have been staples at Western Market for years. Our new Provolino is a white cheese made from cow’s milk, something like a cross between mozzarella and provolone. This cheese is mild in flavor and excellent for melting.

“We take 40-percent cream, milk, sugar, and our flavoring [including nutmeg] is from a local flavoring company, so it’s a Michigan-made product,” John Calder says. “We heat it up so it’s pasteurized and hold the heat for the legal length of time. Then we cool it and bottle it.”
