Vermont’s Jasper Hill wins ‘Tastie’ cheese award

first_imgThe October issue of Cooking Light (www.CookingLight.com(link is external)) features the brand’s first-ever Taste Test Awards ‘ “The Tasties.” The editors tested 200 food products and came up with the best-tasting winners in 32 categories. Twenty-six of the categories feature grocery store products while six showcase artisanal standouts. The issue hits newsstands September 17th. Vermont’s Cellars at Jasper Hill Cabot Clothbound Cheddar won in the artisanal cheese category.To qualify in the grocery categories, foods had to be available in major markets nationwide. Cooking Light vetted products against nutrition standards, eliminating those that contained artificial trans fats, too much salt, or artificial sugars. The panel of editors tasted finalists “blind:” the tasters did not know which brands they were sampling. Not all products are low fat. Some higher fat items are on the list because of their superior quality and taste. Used moderately, these products have a place in a healthy lifestyle. In each category, one Grand Prize Winner (GPW) is selected as well as one or more Taste Test Award Winners (TTA).”Our staff spent most of the last year tasting American grocery and artisanal foods for our awards,” says Editor Scott Mowbray. “We ate our way through bread, cereal, and hummus to find products that we felt deserved recognition. We added the artisanal categories because there is so much exciting action in the world of handmade food right now.”The 2010 Taste Test Award Grocery Winners:BEANS, Cannellini:GPW: ProgressoTTA: GoyaBUTTER, Salted Gourmet:GPW: Organic ValleyTTA: LurpakTTA: ChimayBREAD, 100% Whole Wheat:GPW: Rudi’s Organic BakeryTTA: Whole Foods OrganicBUTTER, Unsalted Everyday:GPW: Target Market PantryTTA: BordenTTA: Whole Foods 365 OrganicTTA: Wal-Mart Great ValueCEREAL, Raisin Bran:GPW: Kellogg’s Raisin BranTTA: Fiber One Raisin Bran ClustersGRANOLA, Oat and Honey:GPW: Cascadian Farms OrganicTTA: Whole Foods 365 OrganicTTA: Quaker NaturalHUMMUS:GPW: Tribe ClassicTTA: Athenos OriginalICE CREAM, Light Vanilla:GPW: Turkey Hill Vanilla BeanTTA: Edy’s Slow-ChurnedMAYONNAISE, Canola:GPW: Hellmann’sTTA: Whole Foods 365PIZZA, Frozen Margherita:GPW: Tandoor Chef Naan PizzaTTA: Amy’s KitchenPOPCORN, Light Microwave:GPW: Newman’s Own 94% Fat FreeTTA: Smart Balance Light ButterTTA: Act II 94% Fat Free ButterRICE, Long-Grain Brown:GPW: Lundberg Family FarmsTTA: Arrowhead Mills OrganicRICE, Boil-in-Bag Brown:GPW: Uncle Ben’sTTA: SuccessSALSA, Mild Tomato:GPW: Green Mountain GringoTTA: FronteraTTA: OrganicvilleSAUSAGE, Chicken and Apple:GPW: Lou’s FamousTTA: Al Fresco Sweet AppleSPAGHETTI, Whole Wheat:GPW: Gia RussaTTA: RaccontoTTA: Target Archer FarmsSOUP, Reduced-Sodium Chicken Noodle:GPW: ProgressoTTA: Campbell’s Select HarvestSOUR CREAM, Light:GPW: DaisyTTA: Organic ValleyTTA: Target Market PantrySOY MILK, Plain, Light:GPW: Target Archer FarmsTTA: SilkSOY SAUCE, Lower-Sodium:GPW: KikkomanTTA: Target Market PantryTOFU, Firm:GPW: Melissa’s OrganicTTA: Nasoya OrganicTTA: Tree of LifeTOMATOES, Diced, No-Salt-Added:GPW: Del MonteTTA: Whole Foods 365 OrganicTORTILLA CHIPS, 100% Yellow Corn:GPW: Target Archer Farms OrganicTTA: Tostitos NaturalTUNA, Albacore Packed in Water:GPW: Whole Foods 365TTA: Crown Prince NaturalTUNA, Gourmet, Packed in Oil:GPW: Ortiz Bonito del NorteTTA: CentoYOGURT, Plain, Nonfat Greek:GPW: FageTTA: ChobaniTTA: Voskos OrganicThe 2010 Taste Test Award Artisanal Winners:CHEESELeelanau Cheese Company Raclette, MichiganCellars at Jasper Hill Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, VermontBeecher’s 4-Year Aged Flagship Cheddar, WashingtonMeadow Creek Dairy Appalachian Semi-Soft Raw Cow’s Milk, VirginiaSweetwoods Aged Goat Cheese, New MexicoCONDIMENTSLattin Farms Cantaloupe Jam, NevadaSticky Finger Bakeries Orange Curd, WashingtonBreezie Maples Farm Maple Syrup, New YorkFarmer’s Daughter Hyderabadi Tomato Chutney, North CarolinaHay River Pumpkin Seed Oil, WisconsinLa Nogalera Walnut Oil, CaliforniaMEATTurner Ham House Country Ham, VirginiaTall Grass Buffalo Jerky, South DakotaPork on a Fork Cottage Shoulder Cut Bacon, ArizonaBoccalone Nduja, CaliforniaSalumeria Biellese Wild Boar Sopressata, New YorkSPIRITS AND BEERSCorsair Artisan Gin, TennesseeBlue Corn Brewery Transcendental Tripel, New MexicoStranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, ColoradoDeath’s Door Gin, WisconsinSWEETSSalem Baking Co’s Ginger Spice Moravian Cookies, North CarolinaEffie’s Homemade Corncakes, MassachusettsSweet Margy Tofikomin, IllinoisAlma Chocolate Icons, OregonChocolat Handmade Chocolates, UtahTHE BEST OF THE RESTBrooklyn Brine Co.

Kneeling players show courage of convictions

first_img“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial ‘outside agitator’ idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.You deplore the demonstrations taking place… But your statement, I am sorry to say, fails to express a similar concern for the conditions that brought about the demonstrations. I am sure that none of you would want to rest content with the superficial kind of social analysis that deals merely with effects and does not grapple with underlying causes.” — Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.These words from Dr. King are as relevant today as they were on April 16, 1963, when he wrote his very necessary letter from a Birmingham jail after he was incarcerated for peacefully protesting injustice. In solidarity, he protested, understanding that the injustice experienced by one should be shared by all. It’s this spirit of Dr. King that was evident in a few Niskayuna High School football players and a cheerleader who courageously kneeled in solidarity against injustice.In solidarity, we wish to applaud these young leaders. It’s their courage that lets us know that there’s hope for our world. Niskayuna High School may have had a lower score on the scoreboard that night, but Niskayuna High School won. To cultivate minds that unite in solidarity against injustice is to win.Stay encouraged, beautiful spirited young people. We, too, hope that one day, liberty and justice really will be “for all.” Let us all continue to move forward to make this dream a reality for all.Deb PrivottJay PrivottNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — The City of Alpena wants to warn residents of a charity scam going around the area.Alpena’s fire department has become aware of phone and mail communications soliciting support for the Firefighters Charitable Foundation out of Farmingdale, New York.

Box in Madison Heights, which is in the metro Detroit area, but there is no evidence that it provides support to anyone in Michigan, or locally.If you would like more information on this topic, or on how to support your local fire departments, contact City of Alpena fire chief, Bill Forbush, at (989)354–1850.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena City Firefighters, charity scam, Fire Department, Firefighters, ScamContinue ReadingPrevious A closer look at Alpena Public Schools ahead of Tuesday’s bond proposalNext APS superintendent offers tours of Besser and Wilson Elementary Schools ahead of bond electionlast_img read more

Tusker sends entire technical bench packing

first_img“It is true that we have all lost our jobs. We were informed of the decision this morning and we have no choice but to oblige. It is how football is sometimes but we will move on and hopefully other opportunities present themselves,” a member of the technical bench who sought anonymity told Capital Sport.Tusker FC Chief Executive Officer Charles Obiny could not confirm nor deny the development.Tusker FC unveiled 10 new signings for the 2018 KPL season.“We will release a comprehensive statement tomorrow morning on that matter,” Obiny said in a brief response.Timbe joined Tusker at the beginning of the season with the heavy task of building up a new team with most of the first team regulars leaving in a massive clear-out at the end of the 2017 season which also claimed coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe.It wasn’t to be a ride worth remembering as Tusker struggled for results and out of 11 outings managed to celebrate victory only twice, a statistic that didn’t go in good taste with the bosses at Tusker’s headquarters in Ruaraka.A troubled season it was as assistant coach Francis Baraza was at one point asked to step aside after being accused of sabotage, but the bridges were finally bridged with the former Chemelil Sugar man reinstated in the team.However, the results didn’t change and just last week, Timbe asked for patience from the Tusker board and fans as he sought to stabilize a ship that was almost wrecking barely halfway through the season.The team will now move in fast to secure a bench ready for Wednesday’s match against Wazito FC at the Camp Toyoyo Ground.AFC Leopards head coach Robert matano shouts instructions to his players during their GOtv Shield semi-final match against Vihiga United on September 24, 2017 at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“Matano had been approached early on in the season when it looked certain that Timbe will not last. They have more or less agreed that he will take over at the club,” a source privy to the ongoings at the club informed Capital Sport.Matano was at the club in 2012 and 2013, guiding them to their league title in his first half season in charge. The tactician was sacked at Ingwe a month ago.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tusker FC head coach Sam Timbe consults with assistant coach Francis Baraza during a training session at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi on January 3, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 22- Eleven-time Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC have sent their entire technical bench packing, led by head coach Sam Timbe, after just 11 matches into the new season with immediate former AFC Leopards boss Robert Matano poised for a return to Ruaraka.Though the Tusker FC officials remained coy on the issue, Capital Sport has established that the coaches were informed of the board’s decision on Sunday morning, barely 24 hours after they surprisingly lost 3-1 to Zoo Kericho on Saturday.last_img read more
