  • Do you read Nutrional Panels?

    Ever wonder how many calories your salad dressing has?  If you haven't checked lately, you might be surprised.  Here you are eating all your veggies, thinking and feeling you are doing something right for your body.  Then, you're shocked to see your favorite salad dressing has an obscene amount of calories.

    Well, the other night I decided to pick up dinner from Zaxbys.  I chose their "Black and Blue Chicken Salad" with grilled chicken.  It came with a pouch of Mediterranean Salad Dressing.  One look at the salad dressing's nutritional panel revealed 140 calories per package, which amounts to 3 tablespoons.  Instead, I opened my refrigerator and found a bottle of Vidalia Onion Creamy Cucumber dressing.  Parkesdale's Vidalia Onion Creamy Cucumber dressing has only 20 calories per tablespoon, yet it is full-flavored without the "fake food" taste.  As the name implies, the Vidalia Onion Creamy Cucumber is creamy with lots of flavor and a hint of dill.

    Did you know Parkesdale offers over 15 different salad dressings?  Other favorite low calorie dressings include:  Vidalia Onion Summer Tomato, Balsamic Herb Vinaigrette, and Vidalia Sweet Pepper Vinaigrette.  What's your favorite salad dressing?


  • Granola...it's what's for breakfast.

    Rolled Oats, Rolled Spelt, Raw Cane Sugar, Cane Juice Molasses, Apples, Honey, Cinnamon, Coconut Oil, Tapioca Syrup, Salt, Natural Flavor.  That's the ingredient list on our new All Natural Apple Cinnamon Granola from Amish Wedding.

    Not sure how to eat it?  Here are some ideas:

    1. Eat it with cold milk as a cold cereal.
    2. Top yogurt with granola, and of course Parkesdale strawberries.
    3. Add to your muffin mix in the oven.
    4. Straight out of the bag makes the perfect snack.
    5. Tired of the same old oatmeal?  Sprinkle any of our Granola mixes on your oatmeal for a sweet and crunchy treat.

    We currently carry the Apple Cinnamon and Cranberry Almond Granola.  Have you tried them yet?



  • Orange you glad you stopped by...

    Its almost March in Florida, and the weather is wacky.  Cold spells come in for a few days, then back to normal reality: 100% humidity, clear skies and hot sun.  March is the official start of the Valencia Orange season.  One of the more commonly known oranges, the Valencias are full of juice and rival the Navel Orange for their sweetness.

    Valencia Oranges are originally from Valencia, Spain. Luckily for us, they are grown all over Florida as the Seedless Valencia Orange variety.  In Florida, our Seedless Valencias may have up to 5 seeds and still be considered Seedless.  I guess taking into consideration how many seeds our tangerines have, 5 may not be that bad a deal!  Valencias will be available at our market hopefully through July.  They are sold in three different packages: 5 pound bags $1.49, 1/4 bushel for $3.29 and 1/2 bushel for $6.49.  And for those of you up north, you can start placing your orders online now.


    Valencias are famous for being a juicing orange.  But if you ask me, I think they are just as good as an eating orange.  They are sweet, juicy and seedless which makes them perfect for snacking.  At the market, we use Valencias to make our Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice all through summer.  Can you tell a difference in our Orange Juice when we switch from Navel to Valencia Oranges?
