Tough Chai Carrot Soup

By Jacqui | Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 at 8:47 pm

One of our customers, Jess Stevens, sent us this adapted recipe for a Carrot Soup using our Tough Chai and the garam masala spiced cashews from the Whole Earth Center. If you decide to make this soup, order our Chai “straight up”, which means it will not be served with milk. We make our Chai almost daily in the Small World Kitchen on Nassau Street using freshly cracked whole spices, fresh organic ginger root, a small amount of honey, and a black tea from Rishi. Lots of love and care goes into this delicious recipe. We call it Tough Chai because of the spice factor;it is not a wimpy sweet Chai. A former worldling, John Ward, who now cooks for lucky people in Ithaca, NY, created our original Chai recipe.

Thanks Jess for sharing, the recipe sounds delicious and I think I am going to make some tonight! (more…)

Home Brewing: Cold Brewed Coffee

Cold-brewed Coffee
On the heels of our recent post about our well-loved New Orleans style iced coffee, we have been fielding some questions about how to cold-brew coffee at home.  In the warmer months, many people look for an alternative to their usual hot coffee, but there are a few other benefits to cold-brewing coffee at home.  First of all, it’s easy: a little measuring, a little waiting, and you’ll have a pitcher of coffee that will last for up to a week.  Secondly, and more significantly, cold-brewed coffee is much lower in acidity than traditionally brewed coffee.  This makes it an excellent alternative for coffee drinkers who are sensitive to acidity – either as a matter of personal preference, or upon the doctor’s recommendation!

With the right tools and some preparation, you can stock your fridge with cold-brewed coffee to enjoy as the summer approaches! (more…)

New Orleans Style Iced Coffee from Small World Coffee
Shortly after we introduced our New Orleans style iced coffee last summer, we could tell it was a hit.  Though we had only planned it to be a nice addition to our summer drink menu, the NOLA became so popular that we knew we had to keep it on the menu year round.  As summer approaches we’ve been serving more NOLA than ever, and our kitchen crew has been brewing the delicious serum, batch after batch.  What is it, exactly, that has made the NOLA such a fan favorite?  Well, our Nassau Street kitchen has brought the secrets from New Orleans to Princeton with this magical recipe… (more…)
