According to Dr. Liz Applegate, Director of Sports Nutrition at UC Davis, nectarines are loaded with potassium, vitamin C and carotenes, and their fuzzy relatives, peaches, supply a wealth of potassium and fiber. Dr. Liz Applegate also says that three lusciously sweet apricots supply almost 80% of the Daily Value for vitamin A as beta carotene, which helps to promote both eye and heart health. Don’t feel guilty enjoying these sweet sweet stone fruits this spring!

<![CDATA[A World of Rosé]]> http://www.nuggetmarket.com/articles/1367/a-world-of-rose/ Fri, 15 May 2015 16:00:00 -0700 http://www.nuggetmarket.com/articles/1367/a-world-of-rose/ Developing the hue of a rosé can be done in a few fashions. A common method used takes place at the beginning of the wine making process when the grapes, yes red grapes with white insides, are crushed and left to macerate with their skins for a short period of time, usually up to three days. The length of time that a grape macerates determines the hue of the wine, be it white, pink or red!  

A popular European varietal, rosés are produced and enjoyed all around the world, from France to Korea, South America and of course the USA. Traditionally categorized as being a sweet varietal, similar to a white zinfandel, the rosé has blossomed in variety and is now being made from Pinot Noir, Grenache and Tempranillo. Typically dry and refreshing, rosés are perfect for pairing with grilled chicken, sausage or fish!

Legendarily produced in the middle ages, Parmigiano Reggiano is made utilizing traditional methods in copper vats. Produced from grass and hay fed cows, this cheese is aged for two years before brought to market.

At Nugget Markets we hand crack large wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano that weigh up to 85 pounds! The wheels are so heavy and large that we use the five traditional knives approach to break open the wheel. The initial steps of this process are closer to splitting a piece of wood than cutting a piece of cheese!
