HL partners with Saratoga P.L.A.N. as Front End Fundraiser

By Richie Snyder  •  Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

We are proud to be supporting our friends at Saratoga PLAN as our Front End Fundraiser for May & June 2016. Saratoga PLAN is dedicated to preserving the rural character, natural habitats and scenic beauty of Saratoga County. PLAN help landowners conserve their farmland, woodlands and natural habitats to sustain the county’s “quality of place” and the environment, economy, and public health. They also strive to help communities create plans that balance growth with conservation to sustain the Saratoga Region as a great place to live, work, visit and farm. You can find more information about Saratoga PLAN by visiting their website.

What does “PLAN” stand for?

PLAN, which stands for “preserving land and nature,” connects people to nature through an extensive trail network with over 200 miles of trails in the county. We have found over the years that a good “plan” leads to the ability to take advantage of opportunities as they arise and accelerates results.

Saratoga PLAN is a community-based conservation organization, conserving “places for people.” Although not all conserved lands are open for public access, they provide health benefits and environmental services far beyond their borders. These lands are very much conserved by the people, too! PLAN’s roster of student interns and volunteers are the heart and soul of the organization, consisting of 250+ individuals finding ways to advance the conservation of Saratoga County’s unique places and natural resources. Volunteers help develop and implement plans at all levels of the county. PLAN’s staff of 4 provides support and coordination for the volunteers.

Volunteers help our stewardship staff manage 4,400+ acres of conserved lands by maintaining informational kiosks and 24 miles of trails across 10 nature preserves owned by PLAN that are open to the public for hiking, biking, birdwatching, botanizing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and paddling. They also serve on local boards and volunteer to maintain town, city, and county properties and trails. Volunteers plan events, lend their artistic talents, post boundaries, write, photograph, advocate for good public policy and funding for conservation, stuff envelopes, staff exhibits, provide legal services, accounting, lead field trips and offer biological expertise. If you would like to volunteer, please let us know by filling out their volunteer page.

Please donate what you can afford at our registers during the month of May and June 2016. Every dollar we raise will go to Saratoga PLAN.

Yes way Rosé

By Saratoga Beer and Wine Manager  •  Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Light, fresh, fun and lively are my favorite qualities of a great Rosé. A variety of production techniques creates this exceptional style ranging anywhere from bone dry to sugary sweet and perfectly still or gloriously bubbly. Rosés are made all around the world including France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the U.S and typically include bright flavors of ripe red fruit, flowers, citrus and melon. Dry Rosés are more common and are typically produced from grapes like Grenache, Syrah, Sangiovese, Barbera, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Pinot Noir. Sweeter style Rosés such as White Zinfandel, White Merlot and Pink Moscato tend to be less common but still just as pleasing for the appropriate palate.

Rose Blog

Rose Blog 2

There are three different main methods to producing a Rosé including the Maceration Method, Saignee or “Bled” Method and the Blending Method;

The Maceration Method is the most common type of Rosé production where red grapes are left to macerate or become softened by soaking in the white wine juice while tinting the wine pink. With this style, the entire batch is turned into a Rosé wine. This method is most common in regions like Southern France.

The Saignée (san-yay) or “Bled” Method is when some of the juice is bled off to intensify the flavor of a red wine that’s being produced and the Rosé becomes a by-product made from the juice that was removed. This style is most common in regions like Napa Valley that are known for top quality reds.

The Blending Method is when a small amount of red wine is added to white wine to create the desired color. This style is uncommon for still Rosés and is typically utilized when producing a sparkling style.

“Rosé wine is more like a state of mind,” according to WineFolly.com. The early Spring release for new vintages and the coveted flamingo pink tint matched with fresh fruit tones make this the perfect style for welcoming the first sights of Summer weather. Pair Rosés with seasonal favorites like grilled veggies, Summer salads and fresh fish or enjoy as a simple but delightful sipping wine.

Our top seller, the Bieler Père et Fils Rosé drinks far above it’s price point at $9.99. The newly released 2015 vintage features traditional Provence Style qualities with a well executed balance between its fruity, floral and herbaceous characteristics. Lavender, rosemary, rose petals, citrus, wild raspberry and tart cherry combine to create a luscious mouthfeel with a ripe, lingering finish. The wine is 13% ABV with a blend of 40% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cinsault and 3% Rolle (Vermentino).

Bieler Rose

Père et Fils means “Father and Sons,” and the brand represents French native Philipe Bieler and his children. They founded their original winery Chateau Routas in 1992 but sold the establishment and began producing solely Rosé wines in 2005 after seeing their initial success stemming from unorthodox wine-making techniques and creative marketing tactics.

Divine Wines currently boasts a growing selection of dozens of beautiful Rosé wines. Visit us today to find your favorite!

Let’s talk about Bees!

By Richie Snyder  •  Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Thank to our wonderful Tastemaker, Paula Tancredi Penman for this blog post! 

“We’re the only ones who make honey, pollinate flowers, and dress like this. If we’re going to survives as a species, this is our moment.” Bee Movie

The wonderful stingless honey bee is primarily distinguished by the production and storage of, what else, honey! So you might think that they are also the most effective pollinators, and that surprisingly isn’t so. Native bees are two to three times better pollinators than honeybees.  And this is great news for New York!

Crops such as apples, almonds, blueberries, cherries, oranges and squash are directly dependent on insects for pollination. Many of those crops are staples of New York: the state ranks second in the country for apple production, 9th in blueberry production, and pumpkins are in the top five of vegetable crops in terms of crop value for farmers. And one of the most essential insects in pollinating these important New York crops is the bee.

Surprisingly, perhaps, it is not just the honeybee doing the pollinating; over one hundred different bee species are responsible for your delicious New York state apple! It turns out that honeybees alone are not the most effective pollinators; we have to thank all our native bees. A study by Cornell entomology professor Bryan Danforth found that “an individual visit by a native bee is actually worth far more than an individual visit by a honeybee. Honeybees are more interested in the nectar. They don’t really want the pollen if they can avoid it. The wild, native bees are mostly pollen collectors. They are collecting the pollen to take back to their nests.”

Close up view of the working bees on honeycells.

Close up view of the working bees on honeycells.

So how do we ensure that our apple, blueberry, and squash crops are sustainable? We must protect and support the bees. And it is not just for those crops. According to research conducted by Cornell University, crops pollinated by bees and other insects contribute over $16 billion to farm income. Add to that the crops requiring indirect pollination, i.e. pollination is required to create the crops’ seeds, and the total contribution to farm income by crops needing either direct or indirect pollination is $29 billion.

New Yorkers enjoy their local fruits and vegetables, New York farmers need their income, and therefore we all need the bees! You can help protect and support the bees and their environment. Consider any of the following:

Donate: The Pollinator Partnership is the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated solely to helping protect and promote pollinators such as bees.

 

Buy local: Be on the lookout for local organically grown fruits, vegetables and honey that help support beekeepers in your area. Look for honey from Ballston Lake Apiaries at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market and on the shelves at Healthy Living Market.

 

Plant: Plant a bee-friendly garden habitat. There is something you can grow to help bees, no matter where you live. Check out the U.S. Fish & Wildlife service’s guide to planting for pollinators or the Pollinator Partnership.

Weekend Recipe: Blender Pancakes

By Katy Kent  •  Friday, April 15th, 2016

hl_taste_maker_2016

We might be on the tail end of sugaring season here in Vermont, but everyone in the Green Mountain State knows that maple syrup is celebrated year round. And so are pancakes, especially when they’re (almost) easy enough for a weekday breakfast. These pancakes will leave you feeling satisfied, but not overly full since they’re free from dairy and flour. For the ultimate after school snack, eat chilled leftover pancakes spread with a dollop of nut butter.

Blender Pancakes

2 cups rolled oats
1 ¼ C non-dairy milk
¾ C mashed banana
2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
Pinch Himalayan salt
1 T honey
3 eggs
Coconut oil for cooking

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If using a high-powered blender, use plunger as needed. If using standard blender, scrape down sides as necessary.
2. Add eggs to blender and blend until combined.
3. Heat frying pan on medium and lightly oil with coconut oil.
4. Pour ¼ cup of batter per pancake on frying pan. Cook about 2 minutes per side or until lightly brown.

The Farm at Miller’s Crossing brings Spring with their plant starts!

By Produce Category Manager  •  Friday, April 15th, 2016

millers crossing 2

french breakfast radishes

We love carrying The Farm at Miller’s Crossing plants.  Their starts are great quality, they are organic, they are never sprayed with neonicotinoids (linked to bee colony collapse disorder), and best of all, they are LOCAL!

That’s important to us, because our Produce departments strive to buy locally grown produce as much as we possibly can, and our Plants and Flowers department (run as it is by our lovely Produce buyers) is no different.

red chard seedlings

In fact, Healthy Living is a business that that has been buying directly from local farmers and producers for 30 years, and as someone who works with farmers every day, I can tell you that it never gets old. Mostly because, as I was telling a flower farmer recently, farmers are my absolute favorite people.

Anyway, this will be our third year carrying plants from Chris and Katie of The Farm at Miller’s Crossing, and there is always a huge variety to choose from – whether you are looking for herbs to keep in your kitchen or all sorts of veggies and flowers for your gardens.

If you have some time, check out their website – it has awesome recipes, great blog posts about what they do, and beautiful photos. Their newsletters are informative too, and you can get to know their family and history, and you might find out how to shell peas!

 

field before storm1

We will be starting off this week with 15 different kinds of herbs, 28 different kinds of veggies, and will be waiting ever so patiently for the flowers that are surely arriving in the next few weeks.

If you want to plant peas, kale, beets, lettuce, cabbage, baby bok choi, or brussels, you are in luck and can get started right away – because that’s only part of what we are getting in! Now that I mention it, that’s only a small part of what we will have to offer this season, because we still are waiting on the fabulous peppers and tomatoes, eggplants and cucumbers to come.

In the meantime, get ready for spring by planting cold-hardy vegetables and flowers, cleaning and preparing the beds for veggies, and sharpening your tools…because really, Spring and then Summer are right around the corner.
