December's Recipe of the Month...

is “Holly Jolly Ginger,” which comes with red sweetened cranberries, snowy coconut flakes, and little gold morsels of crystallized ginger. Very festive and great for gifts. I’m especially pleased with the ginger. After visiting Vietnam earlier this year I went on a quest for a ginger that came close to what the street vendors there have to offer. The stuff I’ve sampled from health food stores here has a lousy texture and tastes kind of soapy. While I never did find Vietnamese ginger, I did come across these little chips of Australian baby ginger made by Ginger People, which are great in granola. They’re mildly spicy with fresh flavor and no aftertaste.

Of course, if you’re not into ginger or any other future flavor of the month, let us know and we’ll send two bags of Originola. Please do feel free to comment about our granola—what you like or don’t like and what you’d like to see in months ahead. We’re already getting all kinds of special requests. We’re listening and eager to do our best.
