Visitors Center at Stonyfield

If you’re a long-time fan or neighbor of Stonyfield, you’ll recall that once upon a time, we used to give tours of our Yogurt Works production facility here in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Our unique, green-designed building is still a point of pride for us, but many years ago, we had to stop giving tours when our business grew, and the paths you could once walk along were needed to make room for more yogurt-making!

Carageenan-2

We’ve always thought of our community as more than just yogurt eaters. So we listen closely to you and, in exchange, we share how we make our yogurt and the thought that goes into our recipe and our ingredients. Recently, we’ve heard questions from some of you about carrageenan, an ingredient we use in a small number of our products.

TagineFEATUREWhether used in a marinade or as a delicious topping on a finished dish, yogurt is a staple item in many Middle Eastern recipes. It’s a great way to kick up the flavor of various meats and has the added benefit of being a natural meat tenderizer. When you’re cooking up something spicy, yogurt can also add a nice cooling element to help you control the heat.

Chicken and broccoli "alfredo" with petite creme

I really love Alfredo sauce but because of its decadence, I rarely go there. I eat pasta a LOT, with many different toppings – red sauce, pesto, butter and parsley, cheese – but it wasn’t until I was eating a cup of Petite Crème recently that I thought about how delicious it might taste on a pile of noodles. I tried it out and sure enough, it was just as delicious as I’d hoped it would be! I got all of the Alfredo creaminess without any of the guilt that I usually swallow along with it.

Veggie Sausage Crustless Quiche

I was trying to come up with something different to make for breakfast over the weekend when I realized that I had a lot of CSA vegetables in my fridge that needed to be used in the near future. I decided to throw them all together with some Applegate Farm breakfast sausages into a delicious and savory quiche. After Instagramming my breakfast (as one does), several of our fans asked for the recipe. Eager to please, I wrote it up and am sharing it with you here.

Don't be intimidated by a farmer's market

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but farmers markets used to intimidate me. The stands and tents set up in the parking lot of City Hall looked nothing like the grocery stores that I was familiar with, and neither did some of the foods they were selling. Would I be expected to ask questions of the farmers? What would I ask? Do I need to bring cash? The whole thing was daunting. So, what finally got me packing up my canvas totes every week and heading down to the market? It was a combination of things that are important to me.
