Mucho Mucho Tomates

Winter's hard for producers like us. Mainly because we deal with regional tomatoes and right now the North East is C-O-L-D! Not ideal weather for growing tomatoes. Tomatoes like the heat (dry and salty air with lots of sunlight ideally).

A NYC Christmas Tradition

I'll keep it short this week because it's the holidays and, well, I need a break from talking (and writing). Being a native New Yorker and running a New York City based company, I thought it super fitting to send you a video of the yule log.

Define Ugly...

I explained to my customer that I was not a farmer but a small producer who sources produce from a network of 23 + farms and coops directly. We take whatever they deem as "ugly" or "seconds" and cook, preserve and pickle them into a pantry product that can be enjoyed by customers year round.

After researching the yellow tomato a bit, I also learned they're lower in acid (which is a concern for many of our customers) but still so sweet. A tomato that's low in acid and totally sweet and delicious? Sounds like a winner!

Speaking of Winter, this week we got inspired by a recipe we came across on the Wall Street Journal using traditional 'nduja and thought to swap that pork spread out for our vegan Tomato 'Nduja instead and it worked out beautifully.

Running a Small Business is Hard AF...

This past week involved Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and (only yesterday) Cyber Monday. That's a helluva lotta things happening all in the span of only 5 days. If you made it out alive, you're a survivor!

Nonna's Italian Thanksgiving Turkey

It's Thanksgiving already folks! Where did 2018 go? I mean, WOW! This year went super fast. Every year seems to go by faster and faster which is exactly why I visited the Saucery's vault today and pulled out this gem of a video featuring my very own mom (aka the Sauce Boss) from 10 years ago.

Yellows, Oranges and Carlos

Among the many many red tomatoes we source from our 22+ network of local farmers, we also source yellow and orange ones. Food waste comes in all shapes and colors folks, including these low acid beauties you've come to appreciate.
