    Flax seeds have been cultivated for thousands of years and have skyrocketed in popularity as an added ingredient in a wide variety of foods like crackers, cereals and frozen waffles. A lot of consumers are looking for healthier products these days. Getting a health benefit directly from the food they eat instead of supplements saves time and money. Flax is sought after for the Omega 3 essential fatty acids, lignans and fiber it contains and there is evidence that it may help reduce risk in heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Flax is becoming more popular agriculturally as well. If you buy eggs that are higher in Omega 3′s you are getting the benefits of flax, the chickens that lay the eggs have been fed a diet high in flax!

    The flavor of flax is similar to a very light nutty flavor, very close to a mild English walnut, in my opinion. Whole flax seeds are shelf stable, but can go rancid if you grind them up. If you do grind them before use put them in a sealed container in your fridge. Consider adding them to baked goods, as well as dips and salsa. They are also great as a salad topper, breakfast cereal addition or finely ground in a smoothie.

    More high quality, affordable wines from our favorite wine wizards! Each of our four locations has its very own wine pick of the month. Here are the picks for this month:

    Ventana Pinot Noir 2010, 750 mL. bottles, on sale this month for $16.99 each

    “This wine exudes black cherry, cranberry and smokiness.  It’s easy to recognize this wine has seen some oak because of the beautiful accent of the vanilla and smokiness in harmony with the bright red fruits.  This is brand new and I know you will love it.”

    – Peter Glarner, C.S.W. (Webster Groves)

    Juan Gil Monastrell 2009, 750 mL. bottles, $16.49 each

    “Spain at its richest and most interesting! Hearty wine with ripe tannins. Good with meat and cheeses.”

    – Mark Lauenstein (Central West End)

    Volver Tempranillo 2010,  750 mL. bottles, $15.99 each

    “One of the best Tempranillos I’ve found under $20. Alluring bouquet of ripe fruits, herbs and spices. Substantial flavors of cherry, raspberry and vanilla. Very versatile, pairing well with grilled meats and veggies. My pick for a Thanksgiving Wine.”
    – Chris Young (Clayton)

    Lincourt Pinot Noir 2009, 750 mL. bottles, $17.99 each*

    “I find this wine special for 2 reasons: it has a spicy cinnamon finish that is perfect with your Thanksgiving feast, and the owner named this wine after his daughters Lindsay and Court. A family man, the owner names all of his vineyards after special women. Perfect reasons to try this wine in November.”
    – Ken Etzkorn (Town & Country)

    *As featured in Feast® Magazine! Rated 92 Points by James Suckling.
