Infusion This


By Co+op, welcome to the table Infusing beverages is kind of like modern art. Or last Friday night. It involves minimal rules, maximum guesswork, and a splash of adventuresome spontaneity. You can infuse pretty much anything, but the best results come from infusing a “life liquid,” and by that we mean water and perhaps the occasional alcoholic spirit. Think of it as a blank canvas. With a little practice, homemade infusions have a fresh flavor that is both cheaper and more authentic than artificial products sold in stores (unless you’re into bubblegum-flavored vodka; then you’re on your own). While we’re not here to tell you how to boost your bevvies—that freedom is bestowed upon the taste buds of the [...]

Celebrate Spring with Naturally Dyed Eggs


By Co+op, welcome to the table Egg dyeing is a fun way to celebrate this time of year — and it's a tradition that goes way back — as much as 5,000 years when Persians celebrated springtime with eggs colored with plant-based dyes. Plant dyes can be just as useful today and they're plentiful; in fact you very well might have dye-worthy ingredients in your kitchen already. Here are some great plant-based dyes — using fruits, vegetables, spices and flowers. Pick up some local eggs at the Co-op, and start experimenting! Items Needed Eggs (white eggs show more vibrant colors, but brown are also lovely — just keep in mind that color results will vary), egg carton, stock pan(s), [...]
