We have had a lot of interest in our Almond Crusted Trout since we started
to carry it. However, recently folks have been asking for just plain trout.
So guess what? That’s right! We now have amazingly fresh trout sourced by
Rushing Waters in Palmyra Wisconsin. Check this awesome company out at
their website. www.rushingwaters.net . This is a prime example of how fish
farming can be done correctly and with zero environmental impact. Please
explore their website, it’s full of great info. The main thing I’d like to
point out is they harvest to order. That means when Wheatsville places an
order for it’s trout it’s still swimming. Then Rushing Waters ships it to us
via same day delivery. That is fresh, or as Dan says “that’s beyond fresh”.
It really is.
Rainbow trout is extremely versatile fish. It is best prepare simply is a
skillet (I prefer cast iron) seasoned with lemon, thyme, garlic, salt,
pepper, and butter to fry in. This is a tried and true preparation that can
be done in less than 10 minutes of cooking. It’s is literally a “can’t miss
dish” even for those unsure about cooking fish. Trout can also be bake,
poached, or grilled. This amazing product will be hitting the case Thursday
for $18.99 per pound.
In other new product news, have you tried the Niman Ranch pulled pork? Well
I have and so have most of the staff and customers thanks to the great
showing of Niman ranch product at last weekend’s grand reopening party. It’s
fully cooked and easy to prepare for dinner or snack during your favorite
football game this fall. It’s packaged; so you just boil the pouch in water
for 12 minutes or heat it in a skillet. It’s a 1lb package and can feed 3
big eaters or at least that’s my experience. You can pick up Niman Ranch
pulled pork for $8.79 for 16oz. That’s very good compared to buying takeout
Don’t miss the great specials this month!

*In The Grocery Aisle*
Somewhere between cheese puffs and potato chips you can find a new kind of
snack. Pop Chips are a different type of potato chip that isn’t baked or
fried. It’s made by applying heat and pressure to potato flour. This process
creates a snack that has about half the fat of regular potato chips, but is
equally satisfying. The taste and texture make it a little too easy to eat
the whole bag, but that’s okay. You’ll find four flavors on sale at
Wheatsville for just $1.69 each. Check ‘em out at
