Happy Mother's Day and finally a newsletter after so long
WOW! The last time I wrote, I was telling you the haps for February. Has it really been that long? I'm sorry for the delay! It's been a long winter and now the flowers are finally popping up and we are in MAY. Time flies when you are having fun. Let's get right to the news at Fiddle Heads... First and foremost: Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there including our biggest, bestest mother: mother earth. None of us would be here without her. Our big bright mother wants us to be good kids now and treat ourselves, others and HER with kindness.

As far as Fiddle Heads goes: we're still plugging away at nut milk bag orders. Celia and Catherine are busy sewing and packaging bags just for you. I'm in the kitchen making food and packing up orders for you. This week I've got mint chip cheezecake, chai spice cheezecake, chocolate mousse pie, berries N creme cake, raw ice cremes as well as the full menu. I'm also having fun making/selling several snack foods like cheddary cauliflower snacks, nori snacks and cheezy kale chips. This week I have to make fresh batches of bread, "bacon," cheddary cheeze, NOT tuna, sunshine salad, sunflower seed cheeze, coconut kefir water and a few other things that I can't remember off the top of my head. (oh yes, I have to make more kim chi! How can I forget?!)
Always remember to check the calendar pages for cafe hours and other fun things like workshops and classes. There is a SPRING GREEN SMOOTHIES workshop that is scheduled to happen on Monday, May 16th from 6:00 - 7:00 pm at Hunger Mountain Coop - Cost: $7 for members and $9 for non-members
Please contact me if you'd like to join us for a raw food class.
Be sure to check us on the web as we have lots of new products online and in the store, too, always. (We typically have more sales in the store than we have online because I'm not able to post a lot of sales. So that's reason enough to get your butts in here!) :-)
Here's some older interviews and articles to read:

Apple Mint Schorle Recipe
recipe comes from: http://goneraw.com/recipe/apple-mint-schorle
Apple Schorle’s are a very popular beverage in Germany that can order in any bar or restaurant. With a few extra green ingredient, this Schorle is perfect balcony cocktail with it’s fresh pressed apple juice, lime tanginess and fresh mint! My tongue was dancing…and so was I with my dog in the sun!
* 8 green Granny Smith Apples
* 4 large stalks of Celery
* 1/2 Lime, with peel cut off
* 1/4 c or 1/2 oz fresh Mint leaves
* 1 liter of Sparkling Water, chilled
Chop and juice the apples, celery and lime. Add to a blender and blend with the mint leaves for 20 seconds on low or just until the mint leaves are in tiny mm pieces. Pour into a sealable 1 liter size juice container so that you are able to shake the juice before pouring as it separates.
To serve, in a tall glass pour half of the Apple Mint juice (always shake before) and half sparkling water. Add 3-4 ice cubes and top with a straw or cocktail spoon as this will separate and you want to be able to stir it throughout your enjoyment!
