We’re thankful for a lot of things here at Growers. Organic produce, family, awesome co-workers, and our beautiful home in Colorado. Most of all, we’re thankful for the wonderful community that supports us, our local farmers, and all of our customers that choose organic over conventionally-grown produce.

In keeping with our commitment to community involvement, we’ve decided to express our thanks the only way we know how: selling produce. Which is why which is why we’re ecstatic to announce that we will be opening our doors to the community. Join us at a farmer’s market-style gathering where you’ll be able to buy all of your organic Thanksgiving staples at Grower’s Organic employee pricing! Featuring everything from apples to yams, this is your chance to get everything you need to throw an all-out  Thanksgiving feast for the ones you love, chock full of organic, non-GMO veggies.

Recipe: Sunchoke Soup

Photo & Recipe from Simply Recipes

Don’t let the sunchoke intimidate you! Known also as Jerusalem Artichokes, these root vegetables pack a hefty nutritional punch so don’t let their odd appearance scare you off. Instead, try a warm and easy soup!

JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE (SUNCHOKE) SOUP

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 lbs sunchokes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 qt vegetable or chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste

- Heat the butter in a soup pot over medium-high heat and cook the onions and celery until soft, about 5 minutes. Do not brown them. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Sprinkle with salt.

- Add the sunchokes and the stock to the pot and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer, covered, until the sunchokes begin to break down, 45 minutes to an hour.

- Using an immersion blender or upright blender, purée the soup. If using an upright blender, fill the blender bowl up only to a third of capacity at a time, if the soup is hot, and hold down the lid while blending. Alternately, you can push the soup through the finest grate on a food mill, or push it through a sturdy sieve. Add salt to taste.

Sprinkle with freshly grated black pepper to serve.

Vote Yes on Proposition 37…Please!

California! We need you to set a wise example!

According to this alarming article, the current polls for Proposition 37 are locked in a dead heat! Voting YES would require foods purchased at grocery stores with genetically modified ingredients (GMOs) be labeled as such. Don’t you want to know what lurks in your food?!
