Classic Hanukkah Brisket

Planning a Hanukkah feast? Beef brisket will be featured in our weekly sale from November 26th – December 1st and we think you’ll love this Classic Hanukkah Brisket recipe! 


Tzimmes is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish sweet stew typically made from carrots and dried fruits such as prunes and apricots, which is often combined with other root vegetables. The name may come from the Yiddish words tzim (for) and esn (eating), but another interpretation comes from the fact that “To make a big tzimmes over something” is a Yinglish expression that means to make a big fuss; perhaps because of all the slicing, mixing, and stirring that go into the preparation of the dish! Despite the peeling, slicing, and stirring, we think you’ll find thisTzimmes to be well worth the time and effort. You’ll find local, organic Elmer Farm carrots and bulk dried apricots in our Weekly Sale from November 26th – December 1st, just in time to whip up a batch for your Hanukkah feast!

Easy Turkey Gravy

A Thanksgiving feast just doesn’t feel complete without a generous serving of gravy! This year, skip the canned stuff and avoid those powdery packets – making your own gravy is really quite simple and oh-so-delicious! It allows you to make good use of the drippings in the bottom of your turkey roasting pan and gives you something to do while your turkey rests so that you aren’t tempted to carve that bird too quickly!

Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you’re looking for a Brussels sprouts recipe to convert those who’ve sworn off this cruciferous vegetable at your Thanksgiving table, this one’s for you. The crispy caramelized sweetness of sprouts and shallots is beautifully balanced by the bright acidity of lemon juice and Worcestershire. It’s also simple to pull together, taking about 35 minutes from start to finish. You’ll find Brussels sprouts featured in our weekly sale from November 18th – 24th, just in time for your holiday feast. If you’re not feeding a crowd, feel free to half the recipe and use one sheet pan.  

Herbed Mashed Potatoes

Making mashed potatoes can be as simple as whipping together two or three ingredients, but for Thanksgiving, it feels right to give your spuds some special treatment. This herbed mashed potato recipe does just that, by first steeping milk and cream with savory herbs and garlic to bring this classic recipe to new heights. You’ll find local, organic gold potatoes in our weekly sale from November 11th – 17th, giving you time to taste-test this recipe in advance of your holiday feast. 

Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet potato pie vs pumpkin pie — it’s an age-old debate hashed out around many a Thanksgiving table. Some of the preferences seem to be regional, as those who grew up in the American South can hardly fathom a Thanksgiving feast without a sweet potato pie, while those raised in New England tend to opt for the pumpkin. Lines are drawn around flavors and textures, as well, with many professing that the sweet potato version is naturally sweeter and texturally more custard-like than its pumpkin-filled cousin, which boasts a nuttier flavor and a fluffier texture. No matter where you swing on this pie pendulum, we encourage you to do a bit of taste-testing with this super simple sweet potato pie recipe. You’ll find organic canned sweet potato and local Mirabelle’s frozen pie dough featured in our Weekly Sale from November 11th – 17th, giving you plenty of time to assess this pie’s worthiness of a place in your holiday spread!
